Another thread made me think of ...

When I was in my 20s, I had to use all the men's Clinique skincare products. I really thought I was something.
In the spirit of the OP, Prodigy. Cable, either.
Newspapers, who needs them? Or TV news, for that matter.
An American Express card.
In my 20's I was so impressed with myself that I carried one.
Then AE started going up and up on their annual fee to the point I canceled and never looked back.
I don't buy Travelers Checks anymore either.

Me too. Gray with white writing. I used the face scrub and the huge soap. This was in the 80s.
I also used fancy hair gels for the spiky look. Stuff like Vidal Sassoon and Prel (not fancy). You had to keep switching cos they'd stop working. I don't miss them.
Reservations at Windows on the World
Brother word processor
Separate landline with useless telephone number for my computer
Damned if I know why I still have to fax shit.
Reel to reel tape deck
Tv antenna on top of my house
Console stereo that was a piece of furniture? It had green fabric over the speakers to match our wall to wall carpeting. Best speakers I ever heard.
There was this thing we used when I was a kid to heat stale rolls. It was a little platform with legs and a handle attached. You took a stale roll and lightly wet it, top, bottom and sides, and put it on the platform, which went on the smallest burner on the stove. Then you covered the platform with a silver dome. You waited about 7 minutes and removed your warm, crisp roll and put butter on it, which melted. The roll tasted great.
Whenever I describe this, nobody knows what I am talking about
Pee Chee Folders.
1 for every class. The more graffiti the better.
When even girls wouldn't be caught dead wearing a sissy backpack.

Oh, I still use these. My favorite brand is Teenage Softies, but my mother uses Private Lady. Maybe in a few years I'll make the switch.
I stopped using AOL about six years ago because of the way they ran their message boards. The $cientologists seemed to have taken hold there; if anything was critical of the $cientards, of Cruise, Travolta, etc., it was deleted, whereas members of that godforsaken cult could post about their "gains" and other Scieno lingo, and that shit stayed.
My 8mm porn films and projector.
I thought AOL stopped having message boards 10 years ago, r43.
I Can't Believe It's Not Butter. I now use butter.
Georgia Pacific (Koch Brothers) paper products like Angel Soft Toliet Paper
Newspapers. I don't know anybody my age who reads them.
Cable tv - I watch everything streaming online now and I don't miss those fucks at Time Warner AT ALL.
In a couple of years, I might say "my laptop" because I spend more time on my iPad now. When my laptop becomes dated, I don't think I'm going to buy a new one.
