In my teens and early twenties back in the late 60's and early 70's there were a lot of things I thought were cool then but over the years they seemed to have lost most of their appeal.


The verbiage I don't miss much.  you know, words like groovy, far out and saying "let's book" instead of let's go.

Then there was the hippie wardrobe thing.  Women going braless (I still kind of think that's okay). Hash Jeans, leisure suits and the worst of it all, bell bottom jeans.

I never owned a pair because, right off the bat, I pegged them as looking really stupid. i never under stood how one could put on a pair of those things and look in the mirror and think "Wow, these look great".

Every generation has there cool things that faded away and are looked back on with a touch of horror.

What was something you thought was cool back when you were much younger but in retrospect think differently now?
