    I’m seeing the opposite as people no longer seem to have common courtesy when you hold open a door etc...

    Now where are our Superhero’s supposed to change?

    My input

    Groovy
    Wowzers
    Okey Dokey

    Meme culture seems to have eradicated proper english vernacular. :)

    Integrity.

    Seems to be a faded word and an absent, archaic concept.

    :(

    We still have a pay phone booth (open style) across the street from the auto service station that I run.
    A carburetor was best described to me as "A Controlled Fuel Leak" when I was learning to work on cars. I must have rebuilt close to 300 of them in my time. Though I agree that the ECU controlled tech is better, there is just something about how a car feels when you get the advance and dwell on a points system set right and then get the air fuel mixture right by using actual carb sticks. Which, BTW, do also help on some EFI engines...motorcycles in particular. I used them to tune my bike before every race.
    Once those secondaries open up, that's pure bliss to me.:D
    Yep, if you really want to blow their minds, tell them to figure out howto dial out on one if these. Lol

    Maybe I'm fading but I just used thos one a couple days ago. There were two guys (of three) in the room that had no idea what I said. One just turned 21 a couple months ago and the other is 14 years older than me but is Iranian and English is his second language.
    I'm not even 50 yet but I am starting to feel like the people in the new Progressive commercisla. :eek:
