    That Jersey thing about cutting bike forks and pounding them onto other forks to make choppers....we did that out here in California too. Hoping for the best is right.

    Do kids use cardboard to slide down dry grassy hills anymore?

  10. I don't think kids today do anything like that? We spent most of our young life's outside figuring out ways to have fun. When I was a kid I went out of the house in the morning jumped on my bike and didn't show up till dinner time. We played every sport that was in season and unless you were sick you were outside!
     
  11. Guys embarrassed to be seen riding a girls bike, or showing up at school wearing the same thing someone else is wearing. Or using the crosswalk

    My dad was just talking about this the other day. Buying a new car, or even a new "used" car was a big deal back then. When someone in the family got a new car they'd take it around to everyone in the family and show it off. People don't do that any more.
