    I'm aged too and remember the TV. Some shows got me so scared I had problems sleeping. The Blob and Giant crabs eating people. I can not really believe they have even more scarier TV shows for kids with animation and it looks so real. I think any real life animated TV shows or movies should be ratted R

    I think when laws that let a average person own Patents and Trademarks and property, more persons got to thinking and it created the industrial Revolution.

    Happy B-day, even though getting older has problems related to age.

    The Blob with Steve McQueen. Scared the bejeezis out of me too as a kid. Do you remember the original movie called "The Thing"?

    They've made 2 remakes of it. My step father was in the original one. His name is Dewey Martin. Just thought I'd mention that. He just turned 88 years old a couple months ago. Still works out with weights 4 times a week.

    I do not remember (The Thing - Movie) even after watching the 1951 Trailer. I did not stay up late every often to watch TV when I was younger.
