@brennyn I mean they knew about the 10 inch BW and us hooking up the NES in our room eventually. For all I know that was allowed cause dad wanted the living room. I hear he used to stay up late trying to beat frogger when we weren’t using the Atari
@mycya4me If i could manage to stay out of the bathroom long enough, i always found a lined bucket to be a much less unpleasant & less uncomfortable receptacle. Being on the hard floor wasn’t any fun, especially when sick.
Definitely video games. Here were the consoles that I owned as a child, in approximate chronological order: Intellivision, NES, Sega Genesis, SNES, Sega CD, Nintendo Game Boy, Sega Game Gear, Nintendo 64, Sega Dreamcast. The Dreamcast came out in 1999 and that was the year I graduated high school. After that just fill in the blanks with every Nintendo console that came out during adulthood. I’ve always been a Nintendo geek at heart. Mario and Zelda(amongst so many other Nintendo exclusive titles) 'til I die!
Steal my friend’s Dad’s1958 Ferrari 250 Spyder, take the friend and girlfriend to Chicago, eat lunch at a snooty restaurant, go to the top of the Sears Tower, watch a Cubs game, go to an art museum, destroy the Ferrari, and be home in time for dinner.
Watch eight straight hours of TV???
Not during the daytime.
We only had 3 lousy channels back then, instead of the
399 lousy ones of today.
I only had the TV on when I needed some help getting to sleep.
