How many do you remember?
Headlight dip-switches on the floor of the car.
Ignition switches on the dashboard.
Trouser leg clips for bicycles without chain guards.
Soldering irons you heated on a gas burner.
Using hand signals for cars without turn indicators.

Older Than Dirt Quiz:
Count all the ones that you remember, not the ones you were told about. Ratings at the bottom

1. Sweet cigarettes
2. Coffee shops with juke boxes
3. Home milk delivery in glass bottles
4. Party lines on the telephone
5. Newsreels before the movie
6. TV test patterns that came on at night after the last show and were there until TV shows started again in the morning.
(There were only 2 channels [if you were fortunate])
7. Peashooters
8. 33 rpm records
9. 45 RPM records
10. 75 RPM records
11. Hi-fi's
12. Metal ice trays with levers
13. Blue flashbulb
14. Cork popguns
15. Wash tub wringers

If you remembered 0-3 = You're still young
If you remembered 3-6 = You are getting older
If you remembered 7-10 = Don't tell your age
If you remembered 11-14 = You're positively ancient!

I must be 'positively ancient' but those memories are some of the best parts of my life.

Don't forget to pass this along!
Especially to all your really OLD friends....I just did!
I don"t remember any of this stuff

Maybe I must ask the Doc to change those dementia tablets

10. 75 RPM records


To show how old I am I would like to point out that they were in fact 78 rpm seven singles. If I remember correctly the seven relates to the seven-inch diameter. Two friends and I put ourselves through university playing seven singles on our mobile disco.

I am not embarrassed to report that I scored 14 on the old age test.

The only thing that I didn't recognize was coffee shops with jukeboxes. If bars with jukeboxes count then I aced the test with 15 out of 15.:)
