Only Time -- I Scored Super High

I'm too old to have played an Atari game or had a Myspace account......
Same for MySpace. Not sure when Atari games were big. I’ve never owned a gaming system of any kind. Not sure I’ve ever written a cheque either. What is that?

Laughing. I know I looked at MySpace pages, I probably opened an account and created a page, but honestly I don't remember. I'm also not sure I ordered from Columbia House, but I probably did. The others - scored on all of them.
 
What about rented a movie on Betamax? My Space, nope! Atari, maybe.
 
My Columbia House addiction? Their Laserdisc club. The deals on there were unbelievable. For our three introductory selections, just about everyone I know ordered the Star Wars trilogy, letterboxed, with the old blue/silver Fox jackets. I think the required purchased after that were very few (like two or three?). But the deals...monthly they'd send out a list of titles deeply discounted and I cleaned up. Bought LDs I'd seen locally for a fraction of the price, including some I'd never heard of.

As for Atari...nope. Did have a weird RCA game console though. Didn't really get into gaming until the first Nintendo console came along. I was more into writing stupid little programs on my PC in BASIC, or downloading a freeware version of Tetris. (There was also the dubious game called Astrotit. 🤣)

Very few on the list I haven't done. Never rented from Blockbuster--we preferred to support the local mom and pop video stores before Blockbuster ran them out of business. Plus, Laserdiscs again. I lived near an independent store that rented both LDs and the RCA CED videodiscs.

Never have written a cheque. Only a check. Because I'm not Canadian.
 
No MySpace account, no AOL address, everything else check, and many times over too, not just one fleeting instance.

My use of dial-up internet was pretty limited however, it was a business account through Prodigy and I used it sparingly, there had to be a very good reason for me to login from home. Wow how thats changed.
 
I just double checked. I did have a MySpace account. Still have an AOL one also.

I did, however, get my first Walkman last year. Does that count?

Same here re MySpace and AOL. But I remember using one of these. At work.
