To many look back at the past through rose tinted raybans , surely its best to live now? Imagine no computers, no big ribs, no super fast cheap cars, no porn mags, pubs closing at 10.30 pm oh nearly forgot, no religion too
No computers - bliss

No speed cameras was better than having faster cars now

Always been porn mags

Pubs closed at 11 unless you were in the know

Religon has been around for quite a while

Good point about the RIBs though!!!

No computers - bliss - but no job and no tinternet?

No speed cameras was better than having faster cars now - why? you couldn't speed for less than twice the average earnings worth of car, drove an old style mini any time? its an ordeal for any speed over 60, and that was advanced!! mind, don't you drive a LR

Always been porn mags - not like today's

Pubs closed at 11 unless you were in the know - not round here, closed at 2.30pm in the day, opened at 6-7 till around 10.30, in most. The ones that opened till 11 had a sudden influx of pissed up nutters arrive from rival pubs around 10.40, who then tried to drink 6 pints in 20 minutes.... after a steep learning curve, most pubs closed at 10.30, I will concede one thing, the in pub entertainment was better, no need for UFC, you could watch it live in your local

Religion has been around for quite a while - just a joke.... related to a song?

Good point about the RIBs though!!!
