Yeah I heard people LOVED electric typewriters when they came out biggrin smilie

I didn't realize in-line skates where that young, but then again, I recently found out bicycles are a lot younger than i realized... I guess wheeled transportation hasn't been around as long as I have thought.

@Zolfie Yeah I heard people LOVED electric typewriters when they came out I didn't realize in-line skates where...

I had a hard time adjusting to the electric typewriter. It was so sensitive compared to the manual typewriter! It took me a few weeks to stop repeating lletttersssss hehe smilie

@JanHaskell I had a hard time adjusting to the electric typewriter. It was so sensitive compared to the manual typewriter! It...

hehe smilie I think I sorta know how that feels to a lesser degree, I've had to go back and forth between two computers with different keyboards.

They had different degree of key sensitive (I think the harder one might of had stuff spilled on it or something), and the keys had a different width apart.

So I almost had to change up how I had my fingers while typing, that was very annoying hehe smilie

Cell phones and PCs.

@SynysterSissy Cell phones and PCs.

Though seem fairly recent smile smilie

@Zolfie Though seem fairly recent

Guess that makes me one of the youngins of the group.

@SynysterSissy Guess that makes me one of the youngins of the group.

If those are the only inventions that have happened, then you certainly are one of the younins xp smilie but you have some company around as well smile smilie

From microwaves to self driving cars, it runs the gamut. My oven went out and it took me seven months to replace it and only got a new one because of Thanksgiving. The microwave went out and it was replaced in an hour. Great invention.

@ozzyboy From microwaves to self driving cars, it runs the gamut. My oven went out and it took me seven months to replace it...

those microwaves are important biggrin smilie

7 months with no baking? ... I don't know, I'd probably need pizza from the home oven before then xp smilie

@Zolfie those microwaves are important 7 months with no baking? ... I don't know, I'd probably need pizza from...

Pizza is one of the least favorite meals in this house, most anything else can be grilled or cooked on top of the stove. I could have done the turkey on the grill but it was easier to just get the new stove that I needed anyway.

Internet, cell phones, TV remotes!

@StarzAbove Internet, cell phones, TV remotes!

No net, phones or remotes? ... how did you ever communicate with people? You actually had to get up to change the TV wt smilieomg smilie

Everything Linnster said ... plus transistor radios. My grandpa bought one for my brother and one for me as soon as they came on the market in 1954. a smilie

@ZonkeyBalls I know Nixon's balls better than Zonkey's.

@Zolfie I bet you do, you're probably the ball expect!

I'm the one the Egyptians called, when they needed a way to move some slabs of stones back in the days. I told them to use ball bearings, but no... They cheated with some alien technology.

@ZonkeyBalls I'm the one the Egyptians called, when they needed a way to move some slabs of stones back in the days. I told them...

I can't believe they cheated!

Wait alien technology? Like fairy dust? Is that alien 👽 tech? xp smilie

@Zolfie I can't believe they cheated! Wait alien technology? Like fairy dust? Is that alien 👽 tech?

Yes, but onlt the tooth fairies carry that kind of power-powder with them.

@JustJimColo Color TV, plastic bottles, Taco Bell, cable TV, electric starters on motorcycles.

Plastic bottles? Now that's a new one I'm gonna have to look up. About when did those start? We're all of the other plastics already out?

Electric starts we're.a change up, what about electric starters on other stuff?

@Zolfie Plastic bottles? Now that's a new one I'm gonna have to look up. About when did those start? We're all of the other...

Plastic bottles didn't start being used commercially until the early 50's. They weren't used for soda until 1970.

Electric starters on lawn mowers....
