Title: Do You Remember.....
Post by: Bucfever on September 18, 2018, 05:37:42 PM
Feel free to post your own "do you remembers" in here, whether it's "do you remember this movie" or "this scene" or whatever.

I'll start.

Hey, do you remember when TUFF was using real NFL player names occasionally, taking some 3rd or 4th stringers and using them for TUFF? Remember when BBB introduced off-the-field incidents and Mao Tosi died and there was a "story" about it basically in all the TUFF news? Remember when his family contacted Ben about it because they were understandably confused and horrified?

Man, the internet in its infancy was so crazy.

Remember when we used to play the mafia game here? Was it the mafia...? Not sure, but a scene would be described and you had to wildly throw out suppositions and accusations in order to sway your vigilantes to lynch a character until one was left who would then decree if they were who everyone thought they were.
Fun times

We did Mafia and we MIGHT have done werewolf too once or twice? That's when my then wife was still on the boards. We may have ruined it.

Remember when you had to actually know where the hell you were going? It was second nature to be able to spot an address on just about any house or building. I think back to when I delivered pizza for two years. I was fast as hell because I knew the roads, had my hood wired and made a killing.
I still chuckle when people are late and say, "GPS took me the wrong way" geez, you woulda never made it.

 :D

I briefly got to drive without GPS and it was awful. I was a terrible navigator.

My dad, however, on road trips and stuff, was great. Even if he did manage to take a wrong turn, he was great at finding his way back.

lol
I mention this to people my age and they get that recollection like, oh yea, there was a day when we didn't have navigation. It's become such a crutch to us all now. Just an interesting observation

So the Captain Marvel website is a throwback to the 90s.

https://www.marvel.com/captainmarvel

Reason I post it here is because I had shown it to a coworker who happens to be 24. Her response: "this is neat, but what's with the dancing baby thing...and what's geocities since you mentioned it?"

This might legit be the first time I thought: you f'ing kids.
