    They took bread boards and whacked their heads while chanting.
    .
    The chant in the movie could have been replaced with "Old mac-don-ald had a farm. Thunk! On this farm he had some piiigs. Thunk! Old mac-don-ald had a farm. Thunk! On this farm he had some chicks. Thunk! A moo moo heeeere, THUNK! a moo moo theeeere. Thunk! moo moo ev-ery-where..

    Now we bang our heads when we see what the politicians are doing.

    re: George TB

    all too true. I’m started dreading the news in 2009 when our three branches of government became a race to the bottom.

    back then, they also used to believe ocean air was healthy. that no one ever shaved. and, they would lynch anyone who disagreed with them especially minorities. because, it was fun.

    Take all electronic devices away from a group of kids for a month nowadays, and they’d ALL end up in therapy!

    “What? You mean I actually have to ‘talk’ to my friends? I can’t send them a text, even though they are only 10 feet away?

    I have to actually sit down with a pen and paper to send a message to someone out of town?
    I actually have to think of a way to entertain myself without having 360 different channels of television to watch?
    I CAN’T DO ALL THAT!!!"

    Haven’t changed a bit: read, play outside, walk dogs, garden. The books, location, dogs, and gardens all have changed, though.

    Not all kids are that way. I’m fifteen, and the person I text most often is my mother. My phone is not a touch screen, it’s only a safety measure. I do own an iPad, but I had to earn it myself and I got it because I love to write and when I hand write, I cannot keep up with my brain. If you took away my iPod Nano, my iPad, and the tv, I would just read,or write with pen and paper, or play with my dogs. I would love to hang outside with friends and play sports, but none of my friends live within a half mile from me and my parents don’t let me go much further than that alone.
    My generation may be spoiled in general, but not also of us are. Some of us wish we lived in a time without so many devices because we want to play outside and that idea is foreign to so many others.

    Katie, you go girl! Back in a time when this was feasible, my girlfriends and I rode our bikes all over the place or walked just for the sake of going new places; we had weed wars with the boys in the neighborhood and played kick the can after dark on summer nights. We saved our allowances for horseback riding and had adventures in (I’m not making this up) Pleasant Swamp at the edge of our town. I am so sorry for you guys today who don’t know the peace of those times, but I encourage you to find what you can of them. They are worth more than all electronics ever made.

    @Katiekicks

    Clarification: I think its’ obvious, but the weed wars involved a patch of weeds in a field that we all decided to claim as ours, just for the sake of something to do. :-)

    Give those children 6 months without them then give them back they won’t be as keen to use them like they did before.

    I think it was a safer time back then you didn’t have to worry so much about being out of sight of your parents and having strangers grab you. Why you may ask there were no strangers you knew just about everyone around because everyone interacted. Went for walks, visited. Nothing like today where most don’t know who lives next door.
