... like there's a difference.

You need to change! Hope can make it happen!! Doesn't matter what the change is as long as you hope for it!!!

And I bet that "change" is all that's going to be left in your pocket.

Television around when I was a kid, which was pretty cool, and I don't think I watched 5 minutes of it a day. I was outside (as was every other kid in the area) from dawn until dusk. I still spend the majority of my free time reading, riding or wrenching on my bikes. I hate being inside. Kids now have no sense of anything mechanical because they never touched it. I guess the Nintendo Generation will be good for something, but fixing things ain't going to be one of em.

We lived right at the edge of town. There is a river 3 blocks down from where I lived and a lake about four miles away and nothing but woods in between, we were out screwing around or camping out all summer. For me after growing up in the city it was like the wild west or something. Once I started riding I was out on my dad's and later my dirt bike every chance I got. you only stayed in the house if you were sick or grounded for whatever. In fact that area is now pretty much all developed and is where our boy KP lives, back then it was a few gravel pits and powerline roads and thick woods.

Why on earth would you sit in the house when you could be out dropping rocks off the bridge to see who could make the biggest splash, or tossing Garter Snakes in the river and trying to hit them with rocks before they got out of range?

Hell yeah I remember trees! Those are those big things I see when I look out the window while playing my video games!

.... firecracker/dirt clod hand grenades! We used to get turned loose all day with BB guns and firecrackers from Tijuana. Build plastic models all year long and then destroy them all in an orgy of gunpowder fueled destruction. Try that today in LA and see what happens. Probably the kids would be ordered to 'counseling' ( =dope 'em up and warehouse 'em at $100K a pop) and the parents arrested for 'neglect'.
