I Remember When....By geniusofdespair
When I visited Grandpa it was, "I remember when bread cost 5 cents a loaf." Now, when I take a trip down memory lane, I say "I remember when computers were 64k." I can hardly believe it, since yesterday I was trying desperately to increase the 10.54 gigabytes of available space on my computer to make it run faster. That is 11,051,991 kilobytes of free space that I am worried isn't enough.
What do you think will be the "I remember....." of today's generation? The defining "Look at how we lived" wrapped in only one number or statistic. Will it be "I remember when one in eight people were on food stamps"?
Worse, according to a January 2010 New York Times Article, "Here in Florida, the number of people with no income beyond food stamps has doubled in two years."
