What did people do for fun when they had no smartphones, no internet and no video games?

Is that why baseball was very popular and couples had lots of children in the 60s and 70s?

    Smoked pot & told stories of situations that had happened to us.

    Then we ate some snacks, smoked some more pot, and told stories of things we were going to do.

    The young adults of the 1960s and 1970s, said that their parents and grandparents had large families, 'because they didn't have TV, so made their own entertainment.' Phones were seen as a means of communication, rather than for entertainment. Up to the early '70s, it was not unusual for a household not to have a phone, and to go to a public phone booth when one needed to.

    We know that people that were born before the 1860s didn’t like themselves because they never had any technology. For example no one born in 1500 would like who they are because no fun stuff existed then.

    Alcohol. Movie theaters. Concerts. Gas was cheap so they traveled around a lot. Drinking and driving was more common too.
