    Probably went outside more often and spent more time with friends and family (ugh, family)

    Kevin, we went to the library to get out information, we read actual books and newspapers, we (as kids) played outside a lot. When we took a walk and passed someone, we looked them in the eyes and maybe nodded and/or smiled and said "Hello." We had no NEED for iPads and we did just fine.

    many actually talked more and led more active lifestyles, childhood obesity was not as epidemic due to lack of activity, kids actually played outside WITHOUT a screen in front of them. they used to play something they call baseball. and families actually did more things together like sit down at the dinner table and TALK not text but actually talk to each other. it was really nice more people should try it. we need to get back to the basics of life if we do, it just might help repair some families.

    Oh, my sweet summer child.

    Remember that not only were there no iPads, there was no Internet. At all. Nothing.

    So there was no Google. No websites. If somebody asked a question and nobody knew the answer, we just walked around like that, not knowing.
