When I was younger, I built a cardboard three-story house (basement, first floor, and attic) and a two-story condominium with five "bedrooms", a two-story living room, and a deck on the second floor (it was also air conditioned). :)

When I was younger I tried going Turkey Hunting.....It ended 30 minutes later when a Diamondback Rattlesnake decided to poke his head in and say "Hey how are ya.".. I tore off for the house and left my daddy in the blind, came back and watched as he beat the thing to near death with a 2cm thick Branch...Then we both tore out of there when the fella recovered..(Lucky for him, not so lucky for us)

When I was younger, Pokémon was condemned as a creation of the devil. I look back on that and chuckle a bit.

Thank goodness it wasn't Shin Megami Tensei that made it stateside at the time. :?

When I was younger, a tablet had a cover depicting an Indian warrior, had multiple sheets of lined yellow or white paper, and your fifth grade teacher got really honked if you forgot to bring it.

(Warning: Sentai geekery ahead! Also dial-up will slow.)

Why, when Kitsune, Dragon and Pete were a few years younger, they were playing Flashman Hyperforce with their tokusatsu powers they are guarding, Pete playing the Bad Guys. I watched all of their show. In fact, they made the jump from this

Image

To this as Super Flashman

Image

At least the colors match the rangers but it turned from a rockin' show into a grim show.

It had to take these goofs and a comedic story below to win back viewers to their rp with a parody game.

Well, King Arthur and his round table were Power Rangers. This were some magic suits they made but it was deemed too colorful to be used back in the day.

True, Sil, that's why they were the dark ages ... When I was younger, King Arthur and his round table were played by Warner Brother's cowboys like Cheyenne, Maverick, and Eddie Byrne. In Black, White, and ... before THAT NOVEL added certain nuances to the term ... "Shades of Grey."

When i was younger, there was a passionate sectarian division among us kids over whether chocolate chip cookies were best with or without nuts ... and between the nut advocates, if it was pecans or walnuts.

When I was younger, I got pushed onto a plasma ball globe by my 16 year old cousins. I never went there again after that.

When I was younger, the thought of having my very own cellphone excited me, then I grew up and realized: Making phone calls SUCKS! (I have slight phone anxiety and get very shaky when I have to make any kind of call to anyone other than friends and family)
Life is like a rollercoaster, sure there's ups and downs, but you may find that it can throw you for a loop!
