time warps

I know I grew up in a time warp. But wow, some people _really_ grew up in a time warp. As I was googling around trying to figure out which birth year cohort can be considered the last group for whom payphones were "normal", I ran across this:


I do indeed understand that southern and/or Christian can result to time warp experiences, but this description had me scratching my head.

"We didn’t wear seat belts. Never crossed our minds. Mom’s arm DID cross our chest if she had to brake fast."

Cars _did_ have seat belts during that time frame, as a result of activism by people like Ralph Nader, and his fans like my father. And my father's hella older than that blogger.

Also, lots of people had VCRs in the 1980s. That's just silly saying otherwise.
