To teenagers, young adults and all you little whiners, here you go from us 30ers

If you are 30 or older you will think this is hilarious!!!!

When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears with their tedious
diatribes about how hard things were when they were growing up; what with walking twenty-five miles to school every morning ... uphill BOTH ways.
yadda, yadda, yadda

And I remember promising myself that when I grew up, there was no way I was going to lay a bunch of crap like that on kids about how hard I
had it and how easy they've got it!

But now that I'm over the ripe old age of thirty, I can't help but look
around and notice the youth of today. You've got it so easy! I mean,
compared to my childhood, you live in a Utopia! And I hate to say it
but you kids today don't know how good you've got it!

I mean, when I was a kid we didn't have The Internet. If we wanted to know something, we had to go to the library and look it up ourselves, in the card catalog!!

There was no email! ! We had to actually write somebody a letter ... with a pen! Then you had to walk all the way across the street and put it in the mailbox and it Would take like a week to get there!

There were no MP3's or Napsters! You wanted to steal music, you had to
hitchhike to the record store and shoplift it yourself!


Or you had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio and the DJ'd
usually talk over the beginning and mess it all up!

We didn't have fancy stuff like Call Waiting! If you were on the phone and somebody else called they got a busy signal, that's it!

And we didn't have fancy Caller ID Boxes either! When the phone rang, you had no idea who it was! It could be your school, your mom, your boss, your bookie, your drug dealer, a collections agent, you just didn't know!!! You had to pick it up and take your chances, mister!

We didn't have any fancy Sony Playstation video games with high-resolution 3-D graphics! We had the Atari 2600! With games like "Space Invaders" and "asteroids" and the graphics sucked! Your guy was a little square! You actually had to use your imagination! And there were no multiple levels or screens, it was just one screen forever! And you could never win. The game just kept getting harder and harder and faster and faster until you died!
Just like LIFE!

When you went to the movie theater there no such thing as stadium seating! All the seats were the same height! If a tall guy or some old broad with a hat sat in front of you and you couldn't see, you were just screwed!

Sure, we had cable television, but back then that was only like 15 channels and there was no on screen menu and no remote control! You had to use a little book called a TV Guide to find out what was on!

You were screwed when it came to channel surfing! You had to get off your butt and walk over to the TV to change the channel and there was no Cartoon Network either! You could only get cartoons on Saturday Morning. Do you hear what I'm saying!?! We had to wait ALL WEEK for cartoons, you spoiled brats!

And we didn't have microwaves, if we wanted to heat something up . we had to use the stove or go build a fire ... imagine that! If we wanted
popcorn, we had to use that stupid Jiffy Pop thing and shake it over the stove forever like an idiot.

That's exactly what I'm talking about! You kids today have got it too easy.
You're spoiled!!!

You guys wouldn't have lasted five minutes back in 1980!

Regards,
The over 30 Crowd

Next thing is, you'll be saying that TV used not to be in colour, or that it shut down at night. Who on earth is going to believe that?

You don't have to be thirty to appreciate these. You could be 20 and have grown up poor, like me. ;-)

Ahhh... the days of hitchhiking to the record store to... you know...

I'm 23, but this was hilarious to me, too. Computers didn't come into my house until I was a junior or senior in high school, and teachers didn't require internet sources for reports until junior high or high school, so I was a bit behind the times when it came to technology. I still have no cell phone or ipod. Alas, there are cartoons on during the week, but now the Saturday morning cartoons are not practically gone and most of what's left isn't that great. Sad.

Learning to make solar energy and specifically, home solar panels is not necessarily an easy task and a lot of people might not really

know where to start. That being said, with the help of solar energy plans, even consumers with minimal DIY experience can build solar

energy and save themselves thousands every year. Make solar panels
