Here's my first contribution:

Today I went to AutoZone to buy oil on a super awesome sale that they're having, and I drove down towards Giant to buy some Penne noodles to go with my Sausage and peppers for dinner.
I see a huge sign that read something like "Everything must go" out front of Blockbuster. I go in there and they're not renting out movies anymore. I bought "Sweeney Todd, the Demon Barber of Fleet Street" and "Trailer Park Boys, the Movie" for $2.99 a piece. Good for me, but shitty for Blockbuster.
**** Red Box that Scumbag Credit card swipin **** hole.
I'll always remember you BlockBuster.
Then again, remember what was before Blockbuster though? What Blockbuster put out of business? The local mom and pop video rental store....that's what. So I guess I will just have to live by "History repeats itself" and "what goes around comes around". Moral of the story...wanna tell your grandchildren "I use Bill Gates's Face as a Urinal"? Come up with the replacement Wal-Mart, and you will be the richest human on the planet.

What do you guys miss that's gone, and what do you have to bitch about that is another page in the history books?
Imagine how many wal-marts there will be if you dont regulate business. your mom will be wal-mart.

Bought a fishing license online a few months ago. It included a $5 fee for doing it online. Seems to me it should be cheaper to do it online. I don't get it???

For a few months after San Fransisco installed digital parking meters, sometime in the early 2000's, you could make them display an out of order screen if you held a quarter by its edge, and pushed it in and out something like 12 or 15 times(yes, I know what that sounds like). I was quite sad when that stopped working.

They know you're a lazy bitch and will pay the premium to renew it in your underwear with your cup of coffee spilling on your keyboard?

I miss not having trash TV, having actual news, schools that actually educated people, the majority of people being considerate of one another, when it was a bitch to make CDs from MP3s so I could charge people to do it, CDs in general (FLAC or other lossless needs to be more prevalent), blueberry biscuits, jalapeno cheese its (or nips, can't remember), my hair, Invader Zim...I think that's enough for now. I'm only 27 and I feel old.

I miss going to see bands like "Biohazard" and watching people get hurt in a real mosh pit. Now you go and see a bunch of high school punks that think they're bad asses cause they're jumping around kicking and doing flips and throwing fists.
