    tell me how bad things were back in the day.

    my friend says:

    me and jerry used to connect to the "internet" in the early 90s through a 2800 baud modem. it was like 2.8 bytes a second. every page was text. there were no pictuers... that was unheard of. there were ascii pictures. those were the shit

    i say:

    i remember in first grade my dad taught me a few DOS commands so i could play . . . LEISURE SUIT LARRY 1. no wonder i'm a creep.

    I used to play VETTE, I used to run over the little people.

    also I once bought Wolfenstein 3D for 2 bucks at Walmart!
    one of the best games.

    I used to play that game on Qbasic I think it was Nibbles???? with the gorillas throwing bananas, I can't remember.
    and the other one with the snake

    I would also check out joke books at the library and retype them on my computer, that's all you could really do.
