We had a streaker at our high school. He ran across the parking lot with a bag over his head and tried to jump into the back of a van. It took off too quickly and he fell. They caught him since he was the only male student of color in the school. (true story!)

Partylines (waaay before MySpace and Facebook!), oh and letters included in your phone number and the operator actually hooked you up (if the line was open) or she would call you back when the call could go thru (and it was always a "she" operator).

People have mentioned the short shorts on guys; how about those mid-calf white athletic socks with big horizontal stripes at the top?

I remember the small screen tv my dad bought in the forties. He put this oil filled magnifier over the screen to make it look bigger. One Saturday morning my brother and I were sitting in front of the tv. My brother was testing his knee reflexes when he hit the right spot and put his foot right through the magnifier. My mom heard the crash and came running in, she hit the oil and slid through two rooms. No one was injured,except my brothers butt.

How about the "Moon Boots" with the Wonder Bread bags around your feet to help keep them dry.

There is always the good cartoons such as: Looney Tunes, Woody Woodpecker, Tom & Jerry, Yogi Bear, Speedy Gonzales. Of course they were only available on Saturday morning. Although if we tried to spend to much time in front of the TV (the "Idiot Box" as dad called it) mom would find us a job to because we must be bored from just sitting there rotting our brain.

I read through everything and I can't believe no one mentioned Nehru jackets!
