Here's a Top 5 of things that were big in the 70's but now - not so much...
1. Burt Reynolds movies
2. People on TV in danger from quicksand. Did global warming dry up all the quicksand? When's the last time you saw someone on TV who had to be rescued from it? Used to happen all the time in the 70's.
3. The word "ghetto". Nobody uses the word "ghetto" today unless it is in the title of some bad black porn.
4. Mood rings
5. Columbia House Record Club mailings
Just missing the list - bell-bottoms and Saturday morning cartoons.
