Sort of like they're just extinct or vanished or even replaced by other stuff.

 

Like when more children used to play on the streets. Now,the majority of them are at home using smartphones or playing video games.

 

Others like, there were side cars attached to the motor bikes and most of the shops were closed on Sundays, etc.

Payphones, calling collect, the way the surfer dudes in the Alyssa Milano ad look, and Phil Hartman are all things of the past now.

durable electronic products. there was a very durable, rugged plastic back then which they made electronic products out of. anyone who held an early PS1 controller would know what i'm talking about. that material or whatever, don't exist anymore. you can't find it on anything. they keep lowering and lowering the quality of the plastic (or any material) they use. like every brand... or for example i had Majorette toy cars when i was a kid which were impossible to break. i would try anything i would "torture test" them but nope. i don't see that kind of metal (or steel i don't know) on anything anymore. sad.

Also, those Lunchables that came with the can of soda.

Old school McD's toys

Now they just make toys for the latest movie or some sh*t.. rather annoying. There's so much out there we don't see anymore, mainly due to technology and changing with times. Like mostly children and early teens, they're inside gaming or iPading rather than outside playing and sh*t. My parents would kick me out the house until the street lights came out back in the day.

 

I also miss the days of those cheap electronic games you could buy made by Tiger;

Licensed games. I mean really, whatever happened to Simpsons Hit and Run, Spongebob: Battle For bikini Bottom and sh*t? I haven't seen a licensed game in a long time.

Brick phones
Flip phones (almost)
Threads not partaining to the hooker glitch in the online forum
Non-ridiculous looking hot wheels cars
Games that don't offer IAPs
People who do not look at their phones
Somewhat bearable music on mainstream radio
Listening to AM radio
A car commercial not focusing on fuel economy and other stupid, lazy people features
Decent cartoons
The history Chanel actually showing history related shows
The list goes on

Manners, this is something you really don't see anymore.

 

People hardly hold the door for others anymore.. no one hardly says 'excuse me' in a grocery aisle and other situations. I think that's why so much hatred is being spread today is because of people and their lack of f*cking manners.

Spontaneous non awkward small talk. It's hard since everyone's constantly making themselves busy by living in the world of their phone.

Full service petrol stations. They're non-existent these days here because the attendants keep getting stabbed. Or maybe it's just Mobil being cheap and not paying any extra staff than it needs to.

I never get to see my family have any fun anymore. Nobody wants to do anything, money is always a problem, and there is always some sort of drama going on.

 

On a slightly different not, you don't see good shows on Cartoon Network or Nickelodeon anymore and most of the time movie channels don't show any good movies.

I like Adventure Time and the Amazing World of Gumball. Yes, they're kids cartoons but they do have quite a bit of adult humor in them.

Reading this thread makes me sad lol. I remember when I used to go to the cinema all the time. Now I only go once or twice every couple of years. In high school it was common for me and my mates to go whenever something good came out. I miss those days.:(
