Do you remember...

Do you remember....
when record players had 3 speeds?
dual cassette decks?
cassette tapes and cassette singles?
8 track tapes? (A good friend of mine had one in her room when we were kids - shout out to e.s.!)
life before microwaves?
when cable only had 40 or so channels?
when you could play outside until the street lamps came on?
teachers could still hug their students in elementary school?
when TVs were in black and white?
or when TVs were those big consoles?
when VCRs and Beta players were competing?
cd's were the "new thing"?
when you could buy laser disc movies?
life before the internet? and cell phones?
crank windows in cars (did you know they still make cars with crank windows???)?
when gas was $0.79/gallon?
cartoons were only on TV on Saturday mornings?
when MTV actually played music videos?
I know there's an email floating around with a lot of these, but these are all from my own experience/childhood. I know if I had more than a few minutes to think about it, I'd have more to add, but I have chores waiting for me. So, what do you remember from your own childhood that isn't part of the "norm" any more?
