  • Over 35

    Hi Guys

    Here is an oldie but a goodie.

    Over 35

    People over 35 should be dead.
    Here's why ............
    According to today's regulators and bureaucrats,
    those of us who were kids in the 40's, 50's, 60's,
    or even maybe the early 70's probably
    shouldn't have survived.

    Our baby cribs were covered with bright colored lead-based
    paint.

    We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors
    or cabinets, ... !
    and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets.
    (Not to mention the risks we took hitchhiking.)

    As children, we would ride in cars with no seatbelts
    or air bags.

    Riding in the back of a pickup truck on a warm day was
    always a special treat.

    We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle.

    Horrors!

    We ate cupcakes, bread and butter,
    and drank soda pop with sugar in it,
    but we were never overweight because
    we were always outside playing.

    We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one
    bottle, and no one actually died from this.

    We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps
    and then rode down the hill, only to find out we forgot
    the brakes.
    After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to
    solve the problem.

    We would leave home in the morning and play all day,
    as long as we were back when the! street lights came on.

    No one was able to reach us all day.

    NO CELL PHONES!!!!!

    U n t h i n k a b l e !

    We did not have Playstations, Nintendo 64! , X-Boxes, no
    video games at all,
    no 99 channels on cable, video tape movies, surround
    sound, personal cell phones, personal computers, or Internet
    chat rooms.

    We had friends!

    We went outside and found them.

    We played dodge ball, and sometimes, the ball would
    really hurt.

    We fell out of trees, got cut and broke bones and
    teeth, and there were no lawsuits from these accidents.

    They were accidents.

    No one was to blame but us.

    Remember accidents?

    We had fights and punched each other and got black
    and blue and learned to get over it.

    We made up games with sticks and tennis balls and
    ate worms, and although we were told it would happen,
    we did not put out very many eyes, nor did the worms
    live inside us forever.

    We rode bikes or walked to a friend's home and knocked
    on the door, or rang the bell or just walked in and
    talked to them.

    We walked to school, not taken by mum in the car.

    Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team.

    Those who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment.

    Some students weren't as smart as others, so they
    failed a grade and were held back to repeat the
    same grade.

    Horrors!

    Tests were not adjusted for any reason.

    Our actions were our own.

    Consequences were expected.

    The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke a law
    was unheard of.

    They actually sided with the law.

    Imagine that!

    This generation has produced some of the best risk-takers
    and problem solvers and inventors, ever.

    The past 50 years have been an explosion of
    innovation and new ideas.

    We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility,
    and we learned how to deal with it all.

    And you're one of them!

    Congratulations!

    Please pass this on to others who have had the luck to grow
    up as kids, before lawyers and government regulated our
    lives, for our own good !!!!!

    People under 35 are WIMPS
