Goaters over 30

Remember when our parents only let us watch like 30 mins of tv a day, and there were only like 2 good tv shows? Now kids watch tv all day long on their phones and iPads, and there's like 200 or so shows currently running in circulation that are all quite good, I mean, this is concerning right? Maybe we should stop internet

I remember when I was only allowed 30 minutes/day on the Internet. We had Prodigy at the time. I spent 20 minutes trying to load UBL.com. I wonder if UBL (ultimate band list) still exists. I could google it, but nah.

your parents sound like bummers. I bet they wouldn't let you have cd's with bad words on them. My folks were cool and let me choose what I wanted to do. All I can say is, yeah, I remember going out a hell of a lot more than kids these days. No kids play outside except for the poor shitbag ones.

I was always out playing street hockey, manhunt, cops and robbers, etc. Shit was fun.

Manhunt was the best.

yeah...i remember we used to ride bikes & play sports a lot... i was grounded from nintendo & tv more often than not...we also had only basic cable for many years. by the time i was like 15 I had very little interest in video games or tv...by 16 i was a full-time workin' stiff...

my niece & nephew are legit brain damaged from too much "screen time". in fairness, the devices are probably better at parenting than my addict sister...

Oh yeah, I was constantly on my bike and going to corner stores for candy 'n shit. Good times.
