    The youth of today.

    Bloody oddballs if you ask me. Can't kick a football. Can't speak a bloody word without resorting to shooting a chap in the eyeball. Never heard of fish and chips wrapped in an old (yesterdays) newspaper. The newspaper used to filter out all the pesky Russio/Merkin nuclear shit landing on our heads.
    On the plus side, if your stolen phone needs unlocking, or a scotch ancestor needs smuggling over the border, these are your men. The underbelly folk, or to use a Yellowmanism, untermesch.
    To be fair, we, as parents, must take a bit of responsibility. If we had taken our responsibilities seriously, we would not have spawned children.
    Quite simple really. Too many kids, yet another fucking waste, nay, abuse of space.

    The youth of today needs to look to their elders for guidance show them love and teach them the right way to live.

    Kids are worse off now. When i hawked Talking Heads gear up into the club at the back of Doncaster bus station, at least it was a physical undertaking. The young uns these days seem to have developed some sort of telepathy, whereby the gear turns up on the set, and then everybody involved has all sorts of things delivered.
    Roll over Beethoven i say. Was he Dutch?

    Someone sent this to me a while back. Bit of a long post , but any BM over 50 from the UK might enjoy this:


    just for a minute, forget everything stressful and
    read
    this...............

    Close your eyes and go back in time...

    Before the Internet or the Apple Mac.

    Before semi-automatics, joy riders, and crack....

    Before SEGA or Super Nintendo...

    Way back........

    I'm talking about Hide and Seek in the park.

    The corner shop.

    Hopscotch.
    Butterscotch.
    Skipping.
    Handstands.
    Football with the old can.
    Fingerbobs.
    Beano, Dandy, Buster, Twinkle and Dennis the menace.
    Roly Poly.
    Hula Hoops, jumping the stream, building dams.
    The smell of the sun and fresh cut grass.
    Bazooka Joe bubble gum.
    An ice cream cone on a warm summer night from the
    van that plays a tune -
    Chocolate or vanilla or strawberry or maybe Neapolitan
    or perhaps a screwball Wait......

    Watching Saturday morning cartoons....short
    c0mmercials, The Double Deckers, Road Runner, He-Man,
    Zeebedee Tiswas or Swapshop?, and 'Why Don't You'?
    or staying up for Doctor Who.
    When around the corner seemed far away and going into
    town seemed like going somewhere.

    Earwigs, wasps, stinging nettles and bee stings.
    Sticky fingers.
    Cops and Robbers, Cowboys and Indians, and Zorro.
    Climbing trees.
    Building igloos out of snow banks.
    Walking to school, no matter what the weather.
    Running till you were out of breath, laughing so
    hard that your stomach hurt.
    Jumping on the bed. Pillow fights.
    Spinning around, getting dizzy and falling down was
    cause for giggles.
    Being tired from playing....remember that?

    The worst embarrassment was being picked last for a
    team.
    Water balloons were the ultimate weapon
    Football cards in the spokes transformed any bike into
    a motorcycle.
    Choppers and Grifters I'm not finished just yet.....

    Eating raw jelly. Orange squash ice pops.
    Remember when...
    There were two types of trainers - girls and boys, and
    Dunlop Green Flash -
    and the only time you wore them at school was for P.E.
    You knew everyone in your street - and so did your
    parents.

    It wasn't odd to have two or three "best" friends.
    You didn't sleep a wink on Christmas eve.
    When nobody owned a pure-bred dog.
    When you saw dogs walking around on their own.
    When 25p was decent pocket money When you'd reach into
    a muddy gutter for a penny.
    When nearly everyone's mum was at home when the kids
    got there.
    It was magic when dad would "remove" his thumb.
    When it was considered a great privilege to be taken
    out to dinner at a real restaurant with your parents.
    When any parent could discipline any kid, or feed him
    or use him to carry groceries and nobody, not even the
    kid, thought a thing of it.

    When being sent to the head's office was nothing
    compared to the fate that awaited a misbehaving
    student at home.

    Basically, we were in fear for our lives but it wasn't
    because of drive-by shootings, drugs, gang's etc.
    parents and grandparents were a much bigger threat!
    - and some of us are still afraid of them!!

    Didn't that feel good?
    Just to go back and say, Yeah, I remember that!
    Remember when....
    Decisions were made by going "Ip Dip ..."
    "Race issue" meant arguing about who ran the fastest.
    Money issues were handled by whoever was the banker in
    "Monopoly".

    The worst thing in your day was having to sit next to
    the opposite sex.
    It was unbelievable that 'British Bulldog 123' wasn't
    an Olympic event.

    Having a weapon in school meant being caught with a
    catapult.
    Nobody was prettier than Mum.
    Scrapes and bruises were kissed and made better.
    Taking drugs meant orange-flavoured chewable aspirin.
    Ice cream was considered a basic food group
    Getting a foot of snow was a dream come true
    Older siblings were the worst tormentors, but also the
    fiercest protectors.

    If you can remember most or all of these, then unlike
    today's youth, you have LIVED.

    Let's all get nostalgic and embed YouTube videos. Is there really nothing to look forward to?

    I'm greatly anticipating the onset of memory loss. Hey ho, no more nostalgia for me..
