There used to be  snack cakes called Twinkies.  They were supposed to be able to survive a nuclear attack, but they got wiped out by bad management and a union strike before that could be proven.

There was a time when nothing had a remote except toy cars. When I was in college no one had email, cell phones or laptops.

LOL I will definitely be saying this. My MIL tells me stories about when Dh was little. DS is definitely his father's son.
She has apologized 100 times for every time she told Dh - I hope your child is just like you.

Do you know what your dad did when he was your age...
