Remember when...

This is a thread to post an occasional note of nostalgia, and remind ourselves of how much change we have seen in our lifetime. THe first example is silly, but came to mind based on a message in the commuting forum.


Do you remember when thongs referred to something besides a type of uncomfortable underwear?

EDIT: I know this has been done before... Do you remember when we first did this thread?
