That point was clearly a joke. You don't give the homeless a kicking. I don't even believe you do anything worse than spitting on them*

 

 

*also piss taking

Righto

Every kid has Autism, like every single kid, the chance of a child having Autism is exponentially higher too if the ma wears Alexander Mcqueen Trainers. Jokes aside, It's maybe just more awareness of it I don't know, sad times for some kids.

The treatment has changed too, lots of tablets and therapy these days , a slap in the old days.

Cars are reliable.

In the late Eighties I had a mate who was into classic cars and used to get all the magazines.  Thinking back, a lot of the cars in the mags were 15-20 years old and the buyers' guides in the mags would be telling you where to expect rust holes or how to rebuild the gearbox.  Any car built between 2000 and 2005 would, it's fair to say, be in better nick than that.

Stabbings. Kids didn’t kill each other every 2 - 3 days like they now do in London. That said the murder rate had stayed about the same though. I think domestic murders have gone down in line with the rise in divorces whilst teenage murders have gone up.

New cars, everywhere. I dont think i saw a new car on the road until I was around 8 years old and Panama Jack parked his Suzuki Vitara near my nans.

Yeah, and you don't need to be rich to have a nice one either. Only royals, farmers and gangsters drove land rovers back then, now every 17 year old hairdresser has got one.

White crumbly dog poo. Used to be everywhere in the 80s.

 

A rare sight now 

Isn't something to do with what's in the dog food now ? Less bone meal.

People using the word ‘vile’ to describe something even slightly disagreeable. To be honest it wasn’t used that widely when I was in my mid thirties, it’s very much a last 18 months sort of thing.

Agree on the allergies issue, nobody seemed to have that past hayfever

Asthma was prevalent, you weren’t shit if you didn’t have an inhaler.

Gay kids, there was one in my year that we knew about, he denied it even though nobody cared. Then on his 18th birthday party he had a male stripper, he came out very soon after and everyone was expected to act surprised.

iPad etc. Even 10 years ago or maybe less we laughed at Karl Pilkington talking about how before we know it 7 year olds will be permanently on the internet and won’t have to learn anything because they’ll google it. My lad is 4, he knows how to use the iPad better than me. I’m not laughing now.

drinking water. The schools are obesessed with kids bringing in water bottles and teenagers spend a fortune buying £2.50 bottles from Pret. In my day, you drank from a tap or if you were in the garden, the hose. That was that.

Was chatting to someone from ITV recently and they said kids don't watch telly. I was flabbergasted, "What do you mean, they don't actually watch the telly?" "No, they watch Youtube and consume short clips of shit. We're trying to create new content accordingly." 

 

Fucking hell.

Hedge porn. It's gone from our life. Used to be the teenage equivalent of finding buried treasure. Always better than anything you had at home. I miss it. 

Whilst it is gone, it shouldn’t be missed. The quality and quantity of freely available porn is better than any point in history and is getting better each day. Some dirty cunt’s porn mag in the bush isn’t something to miss.

I think porn has probably ruined a generation of sexuality for people. 'Less is more' when it comes to adult material. I still remember the feeling when I found my first mag under my teenage uncle's bed, I didn't know what I was looking at - I just knew I wanted to eat it. 

 

Mary Whitehouse types used to reckon over exposure to porn would turn us all into mindless rapey perverts, if anything it's probably been the opposite. Raised on a staple of perfect bodies doing wonderous stuff, then pulling a bird on a night out and realising that anal sex is like war - it's not like the movies, it's smelly and dirty. 

 

These days, I've seen that much stuff online, a young Pamela Anderson could saunter through my front room wearing only a Stetson and a pair of high heels, and the most I could probably muster is a double thumbs up.

This is not the thread but I do worry what this avalanche of accessible porn is going to do to young men and their expectations of women. We have 2 sons about to hit their teens and it is a bit of a worry. Anyway that's one for the parenting thread.

Judging by the stuff out there, I'll be shagging my lads' girlfriends and their stepmums.
