Hold onto your body parts..

Huffington Post has released a list here of about twenty things that done gone obsolete in the last decade.  Some of those things to which you can wave bye-bye:
     • VHS Tapes (well, yeah, of course)
     • Bookstores (mostly true)
     • Forgetting (they did not check in with me before publishing this list)
     • Hand-written letters (saddest item on the list)

There are about fifteen more.  I’d forgotten (see?) how many I no longer use.

Another list from a non-HuffPoer is here.  It’s has the far grabbier title, Things Babies Born in 2011 Will Never Know.

    Well, I'm a freak, I love going to bookstores and I still make hand-written letters to some friends 🙂

    I'm afraid that the bookstores are gone, because I'm passionate about books. I would add to this list the games in the street, The children of today never had the freedom to play freely as I had. Some even prefer to stay home in front of TV or playing video games than go out and play.

    did not want the letters and the books vanished think I'm still old-fashioned because I still write letters and buy books

  4. Vivian says:

    well I was born practically on the DVD so I can't opine much about those issues, but don't want to end bookstores

    some equipment had only a natural evolution,but the bookstores are never to be replaced since there will always be people like us willing to buy them.
