Images Took Forever To Load

Thanks to the slow dial-up speeds of the good old days, that meant there was slow page loading. Pre-Wi-Fi life was slow, and if you wanted to load an image, you better grab some popcorn. Remember the photos that slowly loaded, line after excruciating line? Luckily, we don’t have that problem any more thanks to faster internet connections and speeds (YouTube).

You Had To Leave The House To Socialize

Before the internet, people had to step out of their houses if they wanted to see any of their friends. They didn’t have anything like Google, YouTube, and social media to keep them entertained. They couldn’t have Zoom meetings from their phones, or lead a team from their bed. People went to the cinema to watch a movie. As internet user, Allison Michael said on Quora, “As kids, we got a lot more physical exercise, but mostly because we were soul-crushingly bored. We would do just about anything for a few moments of entertainment. Some of it was dangerous. Those of us who lived have great stories to tell of running away from vicious dogs, climbing tall trees, and having spectacular bike wrecks with colorful injuries to be retold of for decades.” That sounds a lot more fulfilling than sitting in front of a screen and watching a movie, albeit way more dangerous. In the good old days before Wi-Fi, kids live a faster-paced life (Quora).
