Thread: Pussification of America

  1. #221
    Oh, yeah? We were really poor growing up. Besides the knock-off toys, treats consisted of a half stick of gum, half a popsicle, half an apple, or half a banana. EVERYTHING was cut in half! A half stick of gum for crying out loud! I thought I was in heaven when I'd go to my well-off cousins house and got to eat a WHOLE popsicle.
    Are we there yet?

    Haha. I totally forgot about the half sticks of gum and popsickles. My mom would buy a pack of gum and every piece that came out of that thing would be torn in half as she gave them to us.

    And the popsickles would be broken in half on the edge of the counter and one stick given to me and the other one to my brother.

    And here I thought it was just our mom! Us siblings still laugh about it to this day! 6 kids on an LDS Seminary teachers salary and a stay at home mom.

    Those popsicles were made to be broken on the countertop edge, that's how I grew up. Try to break them by hand and somebody gets the broken half in sections

    I'll guarantee you that's the dad of one of the kids. And I'm guessing mom is taking the picture and that's why she has all the neighborhood kids lined up like soldiers....

    Funny thing is I remember my dad doing the exact same thing when we were doing the exact same thing. The day we added a landing ramp to the equation my dad just told us to go put on our motorcycle helmets if we were going to use a landing ramp....



    FWIW - Our take-off ramp was 4 car tires high and our landing ramp was 2 tires high. I remember it like it was yesterday. We also used a Honda 50 as the tow-in vehicle so we could get up to about 30 mph (fast as the 50 would go) for take-off. Wish I had pictures of it. I do still own the Honda 50.

    Hard times create strong men. Strong men create good times. Good times create weak men. Weak men create hard times.

    Real men are a dying breed. Its even worse that some people are turning them into girls before they even have a chance to know they could be a good man. :-(
