  • I was watching a Lifetime movie the other day and this woman was using microfiche. I laughed at her and her prehistoric ways. I'm pretty sure she heard me too.

  • im just old enough to remember using one of those...HATED IT! it was so frustrating...almost as frustrating as trying to use the internet in 1996 haha.

    Beaver, i did a research project in 2012 that had me looking thru microfiche...they just havent digitized everything yet! it suuuuuucked!

  • It really wasn't that hard if you used your brain. Some of the electronic stuff has turned us into zombies who can't think for ourselves. Did I mention that it turns us into zombies who can't think?

  • Yeah, it was actually kinda cool looking for your book. I never had a problem with it. I agree with baconbits, kids are getting dumber because they aren't taught how to think they are taught what to think. They aren't having to use their brains anymore.
