I Am Joining The 21st Century

 Yes. Yes I am. I opened a bank account this morning. LOL

Yes, I am a dinosaur...and I also have some tin foil hat ideas. But I figured the bank account was just going to have to happen, or I won't be able to trade in my broke-ass 10-year old car as down-payment for a new one next year. LOL

However, I do not have a "smart" phone, all of my music is at least 10 years old, I don't have cable, I rarely watch tv, and I look, talk and dress like I just rolled out of 1995.

Is anyone else a social/technological dinosaur?

One you start, you will get sucked in! Lol. My parents never had texting available on their phones until a few years ago. My dad still takes forever to write something and complains his hands are too big for the phone. Haha.

Me too.  I hate my cell phone, deliberately don't charge it just so I won't have to use it.  I don't have cable either.

 I have a cell phone, and I use it only because I am too frugal to pay for both a cell phone and a landline. The cell phone is more practical and cost-effective, IMO. I am a cheapskate---my mom would be so proud! LOL

Haha, I wouldn't say the 21st century but the 20th century, for sure. You're getting there! Congratulations!

 I just started texting a couple of years ago...I just got fb a few months ago.  I hate both :)  I don't get current music like from Itunes or anything. 
I do have satellite and have had netflix for a decade.

 I had a fossil of a computer up until 2010. I had to run Opera on it, because it was operating on Windows 98. I then used my work laptop up until last September when I finally broke down and bought the cheapest model I could find at....wait for it...WAL-MART! LOL
