I am so old I remember watching the wall between East and West Germany coming down. I remember waiting for MTV to come on the air for the first time. The Beatles were young. And a loaf of bread was below a dollar (US). What else, OY, I'm too old to remember.

Hi kwenge! I was born in the '60's. I remember dancing and stomping to the music of Saturday Night Fever, loved the music of The Commodores, Chicago, America, Dionne Warwicke, The Carpenters and others. I remember watching Sesame Street then in black and white tv, and The Moppets too. I sure miss those days of innocence and childlike wonder. Have a nice day kwenge!

O' goodness I remember gas prices being .98 cents. I remember New Kids On the Block being the "it" boy band. I remember dancing aruond in my living room to videos on MTV of Madonna and Cindy Lauper. I can remember only needing about $5.00 to go see a show at the movie theatres. I remember watching cartoons such as The Smurfs, Rainbow Brite, He-man and The Transformers. I can remember watching E.T. and Bambi on the big screens. I can remember when slap bracelets were the trend. Big teased bangs, tight-rolling jeans and wearing penny loafers were in thing. I remember watching Nightmare On Elmstreet and Halloween thinking they were the scariest movies ever!

I am not too old,but in my early twenty's.As a kid,I used to watch at tortoises which used to be delicacies,and used to get available in our local market only for 50 bucks. But now,those species had become vulnerable.This is the change that I have noticed with time.

I am as old as to remember watching a movie for one Indian Rupee with snacks and popcorn. Now I pay 50 Rs just for a ticket and extra 100 for snacks
