Calling a girl's home phone number and then her dad picks up the line.

Also, having to write down everyone's phone number in an address book.

Or adjusting the antennas

I remember if somebody stood in a certain part of the room there would be static on the T.V.

I started reading From Russia with Love a few days ago, and in the beginning Red Grant gets a ride in a ZIS Saloon. Now I didn't know what the the heck that was, but I found out within ~35 seconds of googling (it's a car made for Soviet officials from the 30s-50s btw), in addition to learning about the technical specs and even seeing a few pictures. Circa Pre-Internet, I'd have to go down to the library, search for books on eastern european cars using the (ugh) catalog until I found the one that had the information I wanted, only to find out it's been checked out, then wait weeks for it to be returned, by which point I wouldn't care anymore.

So kids these days have an easier time than ever as far as accumulating obscure/pointless trivia is concerned.

What is this "out...side" you speak of?

The women of New Vegas ask me a lot if there's a Mrs. New Vegas. Well, of course there is! You're her. And you're still just as perfect as the day we met.

Do you live in a cave or something? Are you a hermit?

Caves have the best wifi, didn't you know?

The atmosphere of the drive-in movie.

Also, actually fearing the wrath of a teacher.

Trying to answer a question with the only available resources being-

a. Your parents
b. Your encyclopedia collection
c. The library (if they had a book on the topic)

I remember wondering things for days... how the universe worked, how to invent something, etc.
