    DUH of coarse i do all the time, it pains me to see construction on places like playgrounds, parks and forrests that i use to always go to were i use to live, like it was fine the way it was but noooo the kids now adays need to have some cgi type playground lol. I do not have kids though. Looking back i think my childhood did go by fast but of coarse back then i probably felt that it went on forever.

      I don't think my childhood went fast at all, because I remember it being so friggin slow that it seemed like forever before I got to be an adult. I miss portions of my childhood, certainly not all of it.

      I liked the saturday morning cartoons, the ignorant bliss that I enjoyed before I realized how crazy this world is, and the complete lack of any responsibility.

      I DIDN'T like school at all (ironic that I'm in teaching at the high school level), the orders I recieved from my parents, the inability to go anywhere without my parents driving me, etc.

      If I could re-live the good aspects of childhood without the bad aspects I'd be all for it. Oh and I don't have kids but hope to have a couple.

        I agree with WL, it's not my childhood that went by fast at all, it's my adulthood that's flying out the windows.

          30 was one of the WORST years of my life and so far 31 isnt too bad but yes, I do miss my childhood but I do not act my age and I try to stay a Toys R' Us kid as much as possible. My childhood was great and I had it too good but in a way I think thats why Im starting to realize had I not had things handed to me on a plate (I am the youngest of 3. I have 2 older sisters), I may be in a different situation now in my life. But thats whats great about this site. I can escape from work and go back to those days and just remember how great it was to grow up in the 80's. I havent even put a dent in 1/4 of this site! Its my new guilty pleasure at work now :D

            I'd never want to be a kid again because of too many limitations and restrictions. I would, however, like to see all of my favorite old school toons brought back to tv someday. Today's stuff is just crap mostly.

                You’ll lose your car keys, your money, your mind...

                be afraid - be very afraid.

                The only thing bad about getting older is the realization that someday you WILL die. Once you come to terms with that, the rest is cream cheese. I think about death a lot and sometimes its freaks me out since I have a daughter now. I would really hate to get into a fatal car crash on the way home from work...these are the kinds of things I think about in my ripe ol' age of thirty (well that and 80's toys). But I am working through this and hopefully I'll get a better grip on it.

                I'd relax if I was you but I know that's easier said than done.

                  hahahah^^^^
                  Sometimes i feel as if iam loosing my mind at 21 but my memeory mabey when iam 70, well hopefully not til then, cause its gonna happen. Do i remember being 16 ya it was kind of a boring year no offence, well actually being 16 was kinnda like every other age nothing special. Infact my sister is 16 now so its like reliving it whenever iam around her and i often think to myself was i like this?, did i act like this?.

                      Worrying about that all of the time will just be wasting your life. Enjoy what you got now and just know that death isn't what it appears to be. You're not just gone kaput after a whole lifetime of building a distinct personality of thoughts, feelings and of being. There is existence of consciousness after death and a place beyond this place, believe it.

                        right on, but my faith has never been weak. To quote that old native American in La Bamba: "To live is to die. To die is to awaken."

                        but that doesn't change the fact that we are vulnerable emotionally when it comes to death.

                          I don't want that to happen to anyone. Sometimes I wonder what if somebody dropped a nuke in my neighborhood. :eek: IGGHH! That's disturbing.

                              I'm not sure I miss my childhood all that much, although there are some parts of it I wouldn't mind experiencing again. In some ways, I think I'm reliving the best parts of my childhood and teenage years now, as now I can do all the things I wanted to do then without having to deal with the negative stuff. If I want to stay up all night playing Super Mario Bros. 3, I can, and no one can yell at me for it, not even my parents. I can go to all the concerts I always wanted to go to when I was a teen, I can buy and wear whatever clothes I want, I can eat whatever I want, etc. Ahhhh, freedom. :D

                                True, because we come to the realization that we won't see the one who proceeded us in death ever again in this lifetime. I've been there and I still miss those who have gone before me but I still keep right on going. So, when did this thread suddenly turn into Benny Hinn's program???

                                    Yeah, my childhood went fast that I grew up because now I'm 25, I don't have kids but I really miss being a cute kid I was. I was almost killed in a car accident few times and almost died in a fire one time, man that I almost lost my life but lucky.
