Saw this webpage, and I knew a lot of Tuggers can relate. If not as actual users, then maybe as parent or grandparent of users. It's worth scrolling down the page and seeing what others have to say about some of these.

I admit, the cassette car stereo removable-face didn't seem that long ago to me, until I started doing the math on it. Yikes! :D

If you like this kind of thing , follow "Super 70s Sports" on Twitter. Lots of throwback stuff, particularly to the 70s generation that isn't sports related. It's just awesome. And funny.

So far, I've only peripherally ventured into Twitter, Instagram, and other social media apps. I figure Tug and Facebook are already enough time-wasters for me. ;) I have friends who bailed on Facebook to jump onto Snapchat, and more recently TikTok, but I can't imagine why they would want to spend all that time posting about nothing in particular. Nothing in my life is so important that I have to share it with the world like that. (Amusing memes notwithstanding, most of my FB posts are either legit questions, funny videos, or visual jokes - much like I post here on Tug. Nobody cares that much to see food porn pictures. ;) )

I've always been an early-adopter of computer technology, but when it comes to social media, the appeal just isn't there. That's my story, and i'm sticking with it - for now. ;)

@DaveNW I get it. I just love Twitter. There are some very, very , very funny people on Twitter. And it's short. People can't do long, pontifications on Twitter due to character count.

That may be my problem - I tend to get wordy. LOL! :)

I have a friend who lives for reddit. Same kind of thing - some very amusing things there. :)

It's sad -- there was only one of those posts that I thought was older than me. :cry:
