Born in the 70s

24 Nov

A nigerian perspective : I was BORN in the 70’s.
The last SANE generation! We are the last generation that played in the street, we were the first who played video games, saw cartoons with no color & went to the amusement parks. We were the last to record songs off the radio on cassettes, we are the pioneers of walkmans & chat rooms. We Learned how to program the VCR before anyone else, played the suwe, ten- ten, boju-boju, Nintendo & believed that the Internet would be a free world. We are the generation of the, Sesame Street, Thunder Cats, the Transformers, Scooby doo, Voltron, Super Ted, Tele match, Willi Willi, & Tales by the Moonlight, Cock crow @ dawn, Koko Close, second chance, samanja, village head master etc. Fastest and best. Traveled in train, in cars without seat belts or air-bags, lived without cell phones. Rode our bicycles down the road without brakes. Went to Kingsway and Leventis for shopping. We never had phones but still kept in touch. We did not have Sony play station, X box, 99 television stations, rather we waited till 4pm for dear NTA. Had no flat screens, surround sound, mp3 players, iPod, computers & the Internet. But nevertheless we had a GREAT Time!!! … Feel free to post this, if you belong to my generation
