    The 1970's reminds me of me dino's childhood during the 1950's. My bike with a school book basket up front was so tough that I could pedal it as hard as I could before throwing myself into a pile of pine straw, allowing my bike to go crashing across the pavement of a street in Dothan, Alabama. I'd do it bareheaded again, again and again. You could not find so much as a scratch on that bike. And the basket never got bent. That bike was SOLD AMERICAN!
    Hmm, and I thought Zucker reminded me of somebody. Now I know who. Now me dino wonders if he was beamed down from a starship making a junk dump.

      Helmets weren't invented when I was a kid. Did all kinds of stupid things and here I am 76 yes later and still doing stupid things but having big fun

        Remember during the Fifties how me dino and a kid from a couple of blocks down the street used to laugh at junk that said "Made In Japan."
        Used to be a Ford man, but now me dino drives my third Honda. Won't drive anything else. My first one lasted 12 years until a dashboard electronics malfunction encouraged me to finally trade it in.

          👍 My first Mazda lasted 14 years when I was t-boned by an uninsured woman who purposely changed lanes to be certain to ram into me. (Of course the DeKalb racist judge decided I was at fault.)
          My current Mazda is 22 years old.
          The competitive automotive industry was building better vehicles until the end of the 20th century.

    The Meta Data. Awesome.

    I pictured this text:
    One of these is a Simulant of a Human Being who truly wishes he were human. But doesnt understand it's true meaning.

    The other is a character in Star Trek!

    I had a basket on the front of my bike. One day I was bringing home a big chunk of concrete to make a mountain for my racetrack/train layout. I was pedaling by standing on the pedals, hit a bump in the sidewalk, physics and geometry took over, the bike pivoted over the front axle and so did I. So many decades later I can still recall the "crunch" noise my head made on the sidewalk. Got up, rode the rest of the way home, didn't mention it.

    The biker and the hiker made me laugh outloud. Thanks. And the 50's...remember rubber gun wars, boys against the girls? If we saw our kids with one of those we would run screaming into the yard! We thought fun was riding our horses down the road as fast as we could. My good Quarter Horse Pancho always won! N

    I didn't think you could outdo yourself but I was wrong. Thursday brought me out of my chair. Fred ate his breakfast and went upstairs and flopped on my bed and stayed there for 3 hours. I finally got him up and we went outside where he was very rude to one of the neighbor's dogs! He was up and bouncing this a.m. N

    1970's?
    We built our own in the '50's!
    I told the other kids we should have applied for a patent!

      Yeah, we did cool stuff in the '50s and early '60s. Remember when roller skates were all metal and you could take them apart and nail them front and back to a piece of 2x6 or 2x8 to make your own skate board? Or take two skates apart and make a "4 wheel" racer you could sit on? Ohhhhhhh Yeahhhhhhh!
