- Page 1

Obviously things have changed a lot since we were kids. With technology moving as quickly as it does, there are things that we used to do that seem completely outrageous now. The things that were normal even five or ten years ago seem completely archaic and ridiculous now.

There are definitely a few things that seem to stand out more than others though, especially when it comes to the things you forgot that you used to do regularly.
