Remember whacky package stickers? I myt have the name wrong but they were Mad mag style product parodies. One was Ain't toothpaste a sticky glue that will...something. Been a good while. One was Mud magazine with a pig w/ face of Mad's mascot guy saying "What? Me wallow?" instead of What? Me worry? Can't believe the worthless crap I remember somtimes. ;-D

Mood ring...lol that brought back some memories. All of my friends had one. In high school the thing was for guys to get one ear pierced. My best friend did it and I gave him all kinds of crap for it.

One of my sisters had a mood ring. Do you know what happens to one when you blow a hairdryer on it? I do. To the point that it stayed one color permanently. haha

I was forced to go to a strict prep HS. Maybe two fellas had ears pierced. If I did, my folks would have killed me.
But then dudes in my neighborhood started getting buzzcuts. So did I, but with a mullet tail to look Punk. So I'm walking from the bus on the parkway here with my stupid looking head with my bottle cap 1970s big glasses, and the cops pulled over and asked for my ID! They wouldn't tell me why, but they looked and left. Maybe they thought I was an escapee from some mental facility. I didn't look dangerous, just ridiculous.

It was "the enemy" back then, the doom for rock. Hard Rock fans would get harcuts and become Travolta clones overnight, Invasion of the Bodysnatchers like.
I was into Punk and New Wave, so a weirdo according to both those camps. I did like a couple of songs, and KC & the Sunshine Band. But otherswise I hated it.

I didn't even know they were called that till I looked it up now. I called them China shirts because I had no clue. I always wanted one of the shirts (not the jacket) but spent my measly Baskin Robbins pay on records.
I could never get used to watches or bands on my wrist. My folks wouldn't get me any when I was younger. Then finally they got me a watch with a metal band, but in addition to feeling alien, it kept catching onto the hairs of my wrist and OUCH! That was the end of that.
reply
5 ups, 2 replies
Inversely, I never realized that;s what they REALLY WERE called! I just called 'em that because it was easy to remember (Nehru's daughter was Indian Prime Minister at that time).
Yes, a lot of my watch collector friends have similar horror stories about those hair-puller expansion bands. I'm so sorry your first experience with a wrist watch was a bad one. I was luckier,,,my first watches all had supple leather straps. Then I discovered Speidel Twist-O-Flex bands that didn't pull your arm hair at all.

The fads that were worse than fidget spinners:

1) Pet Rocks
2) Pogs
3) Chia Pets
4) Phone Booth Stuffing
5) Gold Fish Swallowing
6) Flagpole Sitting
7) Anime Trading Cards
8) Pokemon Go

Anyone who thinks fidget spinners are stupid, are just hating on a fad that isn't as stupid as AT LEAST half a dozen other fads.

I'll tell you one of mine. When I was a kid, I sent away for a "hot air balloon." The ad made it sound like you could ride around in it and enjoy watching fourth-of-july fireworks from the basket. If I'd read it more carefully, it promised no such thing. Anyway, it was $5 (a ton of money back then) and when it arrived it was just a bunch of long strips of tissue paper that you were supposed to glue together and make a balloon! Talk about disappointment! :D

Keep your kudos to yourself. Since you're a repost whiner, you don't understand memes. So I'm not interested in your approval or disapproval for anything I do.

Your comment implies that if someone reposts a meme without acknowledging the source they're somehow "claiming it" as their own. Since memes (by their very definition) are meant to be spread around and shared, you're showing your ignorance, and demonstrating that repost whiners have no place on a meme site.

Since I've also seen you make comments griping about popular users on the site, I see you as a nuisance user. My personal preference would be that you don't comment on my memes.

Yeah, you're probably right. It's more fun just to make meme comments and have fun than it is to try to have discussions like this - for both sides. I doubt either one of us will persuade each other to see things the way the other does.

You yourself proved that it was a repost, but nobody cared about that, so maybe it's just meant to be.
reply
1 up, 2 replies
I know it's a repost, you f**king moron. Are you not even reading the comments?

And it doesn't matter whether it's one you care about or not, since you're a repost whiner too - therefore you don't understand memes, and your opinions about memes don't matter.

How about instead of looking at what other people are doing (since it's clearly above your reading ability), you focus on starting to contribute something to the site for once instead?

Plus, which is it? Is he right, or is it a repost? Because he's claiming it isn't. He's claiming that I "made it my own rather then [sic] just reposting the OP's meme."

If you're not going to bother reading the comments, don't chime in.

Pointing out that someone claiming a meme as their own and/or reposting the original source is not whining. It's telling the truth. You sound like the DNC. You don't deny people are stealing memes instead you blame the person exposing it. "'OOH it's the Russians !!" LOL

Corruption in the DNC is a bad thing. Corruption should be exposed. People who expose it are doing the right thing (although they could have a bad motive).

"Stealing memes" (not the right phrase) is not a bad thing. It's how memes are made. It's a good thing. People who try to "expose" it are just showing themselves to be people who don't understand memes.

Most likely, they're just looking for something to whine about because their own memes haven't had the success they've wanted. So it's not the right thing to do, and usually not a good motive, either.

Also, you missed the point I was trying to make that when someone posts a meme, they're NOT claiming it as their own. What's the point of pointing out someone is claiming a meme as their own, if they're not doing that?

Well a lot of us do, but let's face it, it's a toy. Making fun of fidget spinners is making fun of toys in general, and at this point I'm sure there's better things to worry about... like things the person taking every opportunity to insult something actually likes that he could be investing time into instead.

why do you care so much about what they care. If you were not like them, you would not care to have fidget spinners or how your parents downgrade you for that. If you see and understan more than them, either be OK with your choice no matter the previous generation says, or do SOMETHING UNBELIVABLE and UNIQUE. otherwise your SONS and DAUGHTERS will be making some kind of jokes down the line.
