If you are my age, and were born way back in the 50s, 60s, 70s, or 80s, then this is the perfect video for you. First of all, congratulations on making it out of the disco age and into the new millennium! For those of us with kids, we can definitely relate to the video below. It shows how different the world is today compared to when we grew up. Get ready for a blast to the past!
Back then, there were so few regulations. There was no such thing as a “child lock.” Car doors didn’t lock to protect children. Cribs were covered in lead (potentially poisonous) paint. Many children, including me, never wore a helmet while riding a bicycle. Kids even drank water from a garden hose, which is totally gross by modern day standards. Yet despite all the lack of regulations, we all managed to make it out alive.
Life back in the day was so much simpler. There was idea of cell phones or text messaging. If you wanted to talk to someone, you rode your bike to their house and confronted them face-to-face. To stay in touch, you couldn’t just ping them on Facebook. You needed to arrange a time to meet up or call them on the phone. Through all of this, our generation still managed to make it to today.
If this video applies to you, then congratulations. YOU MADE IT :).
