Its funny that it doesnt feel all that different in some ways, but back in 1990 I would have seen 1960 as something very different.
Perspective changes as you get older I noticed. I remember the world we grew up in and how different today's world is.

This weekend I happened to watch SNL's "Carrey Family Reunion" with my boys (a skit from 2014, that I hadn't seen before) and it made me realize:

1) Fire Marshall Bill was 30 years ago
2) Ace Ventura was 25 years ago
3) Adults in the 90's were probably SO ridiculously annoyed at all of us kids imitating Jim Carrey's characters all of the time. . . between that and Beavis and Butthead imitations, its no wonder the Boomers like to just ignore Gen X and are irritated with Millenials :roflmao:
4) But kids today still think Jim Carrey's old characters are hilarious

I'm closer to 60 than I am to 21. I was 22 for Y2K. 9/11 was longer ago than Kennedy getting shot was to my parents when I was a little kid. I also remember standing up in the seat of my grandpa's pickup while he drove around town when I was 3 or 4. It didn't even have shoulder belts- just lap ones. Nobody batted an eye but now he'd be arrested and I'd be taken captive by DCFS.

I know what a dial is and I won’t hesitate to use one if threatened. Now get the heck off my lawn!
