Everyone is smoking. Wink

People research with microfilm/fliche.

Computers only display text.

Stores have clerks who help you find the right product.

There's a robot who looks like the tin man.

No one cusses, or they use euphemisms like "To the devil with you!"

Someone's carrying a ghetto blaster.  (Kids, ask your parents.)

A gas station has gas listed at anything under $3.00 a gallon.

Someone has a portable phone with an antenna sticking out of it.

Someone rips off a sheet of paper from a printer/fax.

Someone uses a fax.

Bad/rich guys use $100 bills with this type of portrait of Ben.

Actually, I send/receive faxes almost every day.

On topic: You know a movie's old when there's a gas station attendant.

When news comes via teletype.

When the TV's not flat.
