How about that! That's pretty far-seeing, isn't it? I think early internet stuff is interesting. CompuServe I think was a pretty big thing in the early days. I think it was mainly an email host.

I think you're right. I like old technology in general. Really cool.

Did you know that the original flavor of the filling of a Twinkie was banana? Proof!

If I ever doubted, I believe it now! :)

I get a kick out of how proud they are that it contains sugar and shortening and is wrapped up in it's "shining cellophane packages". My, how things have changed.

Yeah, we have a better idea of what's healthy, but I wonder sometimes how much better off we are, if any...

Have you seen these? They are fake ads. The idea is: what if today's current popular sites had launched in 1959? I love them.

Wow! I wonder who the artist was on these? They look authentic, and are very beautiful.

Yes, very well done. They confused me at first because they looked so authentic. I said 1959, but the guy in the YouTube one looks more like 1971. ;)
