Health risks used to be caused by the kids stealing their grandparents' cigarettes. Now they raid the medicine cabinet for prescription drugs. disbelief No joke. no

Are you kidding me? There are even warnings on TV, with child actors doing the stealing from some geezer playing their grandparent.

Depends on what your definition of a "child" is. Legally, a teen-ager is still considered a child, even when a district attorney in Alabama tries to screw her, or an actor in New York tries to get him drunk in order to have gay sex. So it's children who are stealing the drugs...from their parents and grandparents.

More people die from opioids in Ohio every day than are killed in car wrecks. That's what I'm talking about. I'm talking about O-high-o.

 If the kids are forced to steal their drugs and cigarettes I can't see how their grandparents can be accused of spoiling them. In fact, when I went to sea I got a duty free allowance of cigarettes and alcohol so that I was the one providing the booze and bacccy.

My family was fair, but firm.

Gee there I wasn't inviting you, simply explaining where I saw the exact wording. Since Americans and Canadians don't use the word sod to describe people.

 yes, i do miss being able to check the forumsi watched. reddit is good for that now, but it's still not the same.

as for the imdb2, since reading that link i'm hesitant to sign up on that site and give my personal information to someone i do not trust to act professionally with it.


The original IMDb still exists for every obscure movie or TV show...and there are reviews. Just no more forums...or "boards".

The assholes ruined them, so the plug was pulled. They won. We lost. It's the way of the world.

It got really shitty over the last decade. The problem children helped kill it. I was there for fifteen years under various names (consecutively, of course...I never went in for that sock puppet horsecrap). I watched it crash and burn. Pulling the plug was shocking, but not surprising. A lot of boards became unreadable.

 Jeff Bezos pulled the plug because he could not think of a way to make money out of it.

From all accounts Bezos is a decent enough skin, but Amazon runs on pretty thin margins. Good bloke, crap business man.

If he could have found a way to make money off the assholes and their assholic behavior, it would still be running.

I just looked at a few of the more heavily trafficked boards and their threads. Same kind of pontificating and bloviating as IMDb had.

A few years ago...maybe two or three...I enjoyed the give-and-take and the rough-and-tumble of big boards like IMDb.

Now? It all seems like same shit, different day...and I don't have the interest or the urge to participate anymore.

Seventy is too old to continue that crap...and playing games with trolls half my age...or even a third...has lost its appeal.

Sorry. I respectfully decline. Knock yourselves out, kiddoes. Whatever gets you through the night.

Started at Sandbox, was at Soapbox for many years. Never got into that shitty Politics board...it sucked.

Was heavily involved with Mad Men from 2010 until it ended in 2015. And that Manhattan Project show on WGN.

I had a handful of boards bookmarked at IMDb, but I really only invested time as a regular at one or two at a time.

God, it seems like centuries ago. I had a lot of fun, but also a lot of fights. Many, many fights. I was loved and hated.
Probably hated more than loved. I was banned a number of times and had to change names a number of times.
Also had my history wiped several times for jokes that pissed people off. I lost seven years' worth of posting history one night.

When message-boarding took off at the tail end of the Nineties, I was already past fifty. Oh, there were people older than I was, some much older. But not all that many. The majority of posters were a lot younger than I was. I would guess the average age was late thirties. Which meant there were as many people younger than, say, 38, as there were older folks.

Over time, that average age kept dropping. Eventually it dropped at least fifteen years in a decade or so. So the "youngsters" not only got progressively younger...they got dumber and dumber...could not write, could not use good grammar or compose sentences, made many punctuation mistakes, and eventually began writing in computerspeak and chatspeak. Abbreviations for everything. Then came Farcebook and Twatter, and everything on message boards went to hell...and fast. They got younger and stupider, I got older...and wiser...and stayed smarter.

From what I see now, there are some articulate people at IMDb Too, but they are beating the same dead horses into dog food and glue. I mean, with Trump as POTUS and the country in a mess, who really gives a shit about O.J. Simpson anymore? And if I start telling a story about how my wife and I dated and broke up and married others and divorced them and then reconnected in 1992, after 21 years, most of them were not even born yet. I may as well be talking about WWII.

So no, it's not me...

 The "youth" have this disturbing tendency to blame the Boomers for the ills of the culture, the country, and the world. WE gave them the drug problem. WE gave them AIDS. WE fucked up the economy and politics. WE made the world a dangerous place and gave them terrorism, helicopter parents, police running amuck, and all the shit that is now hitting the fan. And that's why they piss me off.

Boards like IMDb attracted some very smart people at first, but over time, the dumb drove out the smart, and turned message boards into the CB radio of the Nineties and Aughts. Same thing happened with social media as a whole. The bad always drives out the good. Now you have morons using it as compulsively as people used to puff on cancer sticks, and it has changed society for the worse.

Oh, yeah, thanks to my father I grew up with Sinatra in my ears all my life, and it's one of the few things I can thank him for.

But an Early Adapter I am not. Just the opposite.I have a house full of cassettes and CDs and LPs and hundreds of VHS tapes. And eleven bookcases, all filled.

Charlie and Lucinda's Living Museum of 20th Century American Culture. We like it that way. Too bad I never play very much music anymore. It gets dusty. Because I got lazy.

The insane clown who defeated a brittle harpy that many "kids" equated with their cranky old aunt, or worse, grandma.
So they stayed loyal to Bernie and either voted for Trump out of spite, or even worse, stayed home.
Add to that the yahoos, Bible-thumpers, and angry working class who believed they were being screwed, blewed, and tattooed...and ignored.
Presto change-o...a recipe for disaster. It's been a whole year and I still wake up feeling sick to my stomach.
"What fresh hell happned while I was asleep?" I ask as I turn on cable TV. Only difference from the late Sixties is that it was AM radio then.

 Why?  If  boosewell is posting on another board, so what?  Geesh, leave the old sod alone.

I worked for her...and support for her was lukewarm at best. The enthusiasm that young people had in 2008 and 2012 was just not there. I worked on those two campaigns, too. It didn't feel the same. There weren't hordes of people coming here to put Ohio in the win column, like there were for Obama. I met people from all over the WORLD then, both times.

Kids may have voted for her, but they didn't care to work for her. The offices were desperate for bodies. They never showed up.

My co-workers, many of whom were my age and older, considered her the lesser of two evils, and openly wished someone else had beaten her in the primaries. The consensus was that she was far from being the best choice...but what was the alternative? That was why so many people joined up...not to elect Hillary, but to defeat Trump. Even in the summer, people were predicting she would lose Ohio by a little, but still win anyway. She lost Ohio by eight points. That's a lot.
