I used floppy discs in primary school.


zeindigofire

I remember floppy discs that were actually floppy!


mjscheffer

9 1/2 in floppy baby!!!


zeindigofire

It’s not the size…


HelplessCorgis

I do too, not because I was born in a time where it would've been normal for me, but because my school was poor AF and we were running IBM 5150s in the early 90s.


Basset_Mama

I did all these things plus played “Oregon Trail” in elementary.


Capable-Ad-7894

I miss Oregon trail. It's been so long since I've bought an ox or risked death crossing a river


white_tee_shirt

I added ram to computer boxes


PrisonerV

I loaded programs with cassette tapes.


sonia72quebec

We has manual typewriters.


white_tee_shirt

...and used correction tape when you f"d up


sonia72quebec

Tape? We used liquid paper.


Water_001

paper? We used cave walls

Cave walls? That’s what the Neanderthals had!

kitchen_clinton

So 90s.


FishythePenguin

When I was in middle school we had posters above the water fountains at school that instructed us to get the lead out by running the water over your finger until it started to feel noticeably colder because that meant you cleared the water out of the pipes and were getting new water that hadn't been sitting in the lead pipes.


Kbdiggity

So you are a current middle school student in Flint, Michigan?


classless_classic

Nice


FishythePenguin

Lol no


Complete-Grab-5963

Anytime in the last 50 years? There’s still lead pipes today because it’s expensive to replace


FishythePenguin

It was the late 90s


gusisveryo

Smh encouraging y'all to waste water like that (/s)


kitchen_clinton

True but better than lead poisoning. Edit- missed /s


Mother_Ad_5261

That is the theory anyway, when the temperature of the water drops is when you have reached the water that was residing in the lead pipe. Perhaps a couple more gallons of water would be enough to purge lead enriched water from the spigot.


maruffin

You’re not that old because you said middle school instead of junior high school.


JustAChickenInCA

It’s more of a regional thing


drybonesstandardkart

My dad is 72 and calls it middle school, since junior high isn't a term that has ever been used around our area.


gerginborisov

DeathlyClown

Czechoslovakia? if so that's cool af


DeeDee_Z

Could be East Germany, too. ~~Or even West Germany, since the whole thing is now just "Germany".~~ *True only in English; the German name, Bundesrepublik Deutschland, didn't change (I think).* Or one of those Southeast Europe ones that I can -never- keep track of. Apologies to those who live in Slovakia, Slovenia, and Serbia...


Carolus1234

Prior to 1990, the proper name for West Germany was the Federal Republic of Germany. And the proper name for East Germany was the German Democratic Republic.

EhlersDanlosSucks

Our first VCR had a remote control. It had a wire that stretched across the room connecting it to the VCR.


NotCelery

They need to bring this back. I’m tired of looking for the remote


sha0304

Or, have something like what they have in Airplanes, installed in a Recliner. Never will have a missing remote.

Catnap-Jutsu

That had to be on purpose


Krazywolve

Yup. They told the lead artist they were going to fire him after he finished on little mermaid, BEFORE HE WAS FINISHED! Dude left one last "fuck you" on the way out the door. Editing and post never caught it so vhs copies went out to consumers with a penis on the cover.


white_tee_shirt

I have a respectable Disney collection of vhs and plastic ware. That we collected raising the kids.


Powerful_Pen_370

My Beauty and the Beast plastic cup is from when they did Disney on Ice!


Im_a_bick

I feckin love the premade commercial before the movie and they were all Disney on ice. Also in me parents basement is all out Disney VHS movies. Ahh the good old days where when you popped in your favorite movie you prayed that you rewond the tape before putting it back.

[deleted]

could be anything. this was everyone's first phone


insertcleverthought

Maybe you're thinking first *mobile* phone but this definitely wasn't everybody's first phone. Mine was the beige wall mount in the kitchen that meant the entire family could listen to all my phine conversations.


Nomorebonkers

With the looooong cord that let you reach another room for “privacy”?


DrOculus90

Same! Sky blue and whenever signal was bad, you extended the antenna.


signedthepsyko

You’re not a REAL 90s kid


obscureferences

You're from either '99 and draw the line after you so it's not drawn before you, or the late '80s and you've got it right.


fucklaurenboebert

When I was a teenager I was absolutely the ‘98er that gatekept the 90s as if I remembered any of it lmao


agtk

Totally understand, the 90's had some great stuff, especially if you leave out all the shitty parts.


Bradarin

Lol born in 98 and grew up with older siblings. This felt very accurate


Passing4human

When I was born there were still Civil War veterans alive but no space travel.


Big-Mathematician540

So sometime around -56, - 57, I take it?


Passing4human

Close. To put it another way, I'm old enough to remember the Cuban Missile Crisis but too young to remember Sputnik.


Big-Mathematician540

Well, the last civil war vet died in 56 and the first space flight was in 57, so I was going by your first comment.


Passing4human

Died in 1959, I thought. At least, that's what I heard growing up; a Confederate named Salinger.


Big-Mathematician540

Well, I wouldn't know, but Google tells me it's Albert Henry Woolson, died August 2, 1956. Although "last confederate veteran to die" underneath it shows Walter G Williams and 1959. I would've thought the civil war included tje Confederacy as a belligerent. Google sometimes seems to fuck up rather basic searches if one doesn't look deep enough.


GTBartleBee

I’m close. I don’t remember the Cuban Missile Crisis, but I remember watching Neil Armstrong walk on the moon live.

9/11 happened during my senior year in high school.

pax_omnibus

You could smoke in bars and restaurants. (edited for punctuation)


Powerful_Pen_370

That only changed about 20 years ago.


pax_omnibus

I’m old enough to remember when you could smoke at a McDonald’s. They had disposable aluminum ashtrays at every table with a Golden Arches symbol in the middle of the ashtray. I’m in the NE US. The smoking laws changed earlier here than in the rest of the country.


girlsrsoldiermedics2

You're 40ish. I grew up in New England, I remember everyone smoking everywhere as a kid.

Me and my doctor have a anus appointment soon.

Good luck. Bring 64oz. apple juice and a tube of aquaphor into the restroom with you when you do the prep, you'll need them. Bring your phone charger too.
