also remember when a huge selling point for cell phones was how many (or few) long distance minutes were included with your plan? i almost can't even wrap my mind around the concept of long distance or collect calls.

Moreover, before everyone had cell phones there were those commercials that would make fun of you for dialing 0 to make a collect call, they would be like dial 10-10-321 or 10-10-9000 idk there were a few companies out there

Ha, yeah I remember the two big 10-10-xxx companies had huge advertising campaigns.  I mean in 1998 it doesn't get much bigger than Lithgow vs Lloyd.

These are some great Certain Things.  Good work everyone.

Remember Encyclopedia sets?  We had a full set in the living room.  Do you need to know something about something?  Well you better know what letter it starts with.

We won’t really know how good he is until the late signing period is over in Feb 2021. If he’s failed to put together a class in the 40’s in the rivals team rankings by then he sucks.

QFMFT. Everyone freaking out about recruiting now are people who didn't like the hire. I guess he's going to be the first coach OAT who gets less than a year before we determine whether or not he can recruit. The guy has been on the job for less than 5 months, and people are losing their crap because this dude lost an offensive lineman to the back-to back conference coach of the year.

Hey everyone freaking out and/or losing your crap, just calm down alright.  What even is your deal anyway?

Anyone have the Hulu Live package?

Winters, I do.

Can you watch espnu and fskc on it?

Yes and yes.  Hulu Live is great, no complaints from me.  Some people complain about the interface but if you're not a complete moron it's simple.  And the interface has actually gotten a lot more intuitive since Hulu Live first began.

Remember: Time & Temp?  You would call and a robot would tell you the time and temperature.  I called it all the time because the only other way to figure out the temp was to wait for the Local on the 8's on the Weather Channel.  The Topeka # was 271-7575.  I remembered it just now off the top of my head because that's how often I called Time & Temp.  Wow, it still works!  You have to listen to a 30 second diabetes product commercial but then you get the time and temp.

Oh I'll know way before that.  Let me know if you want me to tell you early.

hey how about dial tones?

Yeah, dial tone, wow.  On a number of occasions when their were people around I would say "I've got tone!" and then as I was dialing the last number I would say "firing!"

Remember busy signals?  It's like, well I know they are home because the line is busy but I'm just waiting for them to get off the phone.  Or, omg it's been busy for like an hour, get off the phone people!

Feel free to discuss busy signals and your memories of them and also new certain things that you remember.

Sign of getting old #1: Did some yard work yesterday and this morning my back hurts like the dickens. 

Sign of getting old #2: I say "hurts like the dickens".

I really enjoy watching golf but I probably haven't watched an entire Sunday's coverage of a major since the 2008 US Open.  Until yesterday.  Wow, Tiger.  Thanks Tiger.  Tiger.

The other day I couldn't remember if I was 34 or 35.  I told the person I was 34.  Turns out I'm 35.

One time at the butterfly house thing at the Omaha Zoo a butterfly landed on my neck and I almost smashed its guts out but then I remembered not to smash it because I was in the butterfly house.

At the Nature Center in St. Joe during the summer they do this thing where you can bring your kids and feed the fish. I thought it sounded cool so I took the kids last year and they give you a bucket of nightcrawlers and a pair of child safety scissors and you cut the worms up into little pieces for the fish.  Pretty disturbing.

My 4th grade daughters best friend had to move away last year.  She was sad so I took her out for ice cream.  Should I have ran for president?

sys, a range should mean less confidence and a single number more so.

If just those commitments hold, Miles would have secured five in-state Kansas preps in two classes; in the Jayhawks’ four seasons before that, they’d signed seven in-state high-schoolers combined.

Not really that big of a difference.  On pace for 10 in 4 classes instead of 7 in 4 classes.  COMBINED

Do we really want an 80 year old president.  I mean 80 is incredibly old.  80!

If you don't win the election you should have to pay everyone back.  Politicians are unconscionable monsters.

Wow, I had forgotten how amazing this thread was, well done everyone.  Imagine how much better K-State would be at everything if we were allowed to make the decisions.  Just imagine it.  Wow.
