Nostalgia - What happened to white dog-eggs?

#1
Sorting out my garage yesterday, I came across a Rubik's Cube among other bits and pieces. It got me thinking about stuff that mysteriously disappeared in the 70's and 80's without explaination. Things that entered my head were among the following:

1. White dog-poo - did they change the food? Or are they just better at cleaning it up nowadays for 'elf & safety innit?
2. Park porn - many's the day at the recky we'd come across a jazz-mag (lifted only by extra-long branch) and laugh at the seedy pics with our giggly 10-year old voices.
3. Space-hoppers - every garden once had one.
4. The word 'Skill', mainly used during the Grange Hill era (Did you get to kiss Sarah? Yeah, kissed her last night! ...Skill!)
5. Roller Skates - no need to remove the trainers, just strap these babies on and fail miserably to actually go anywhere.

What other things can you think of that you don't see anymore?

The Bionic Man. He was proper skill with his bionic eye and he could lift up an engine.

And the cartoon Battle of The Planets, with that weirdo one who had tourettes or summat. Keeop I think his name was.

Less bone meal in modern dog foods, apparantly.

Spangles, Texan bars, the Banana Splits.
The white dog shite is a mystery, there was always a few chunks of it lying on the road or lurking in the grass, then, gone, replaced by huge, smelly, shiny turds. Bring back chalky dog sh*t!

White dog poo? F ucking space hoppers? Hardly an original topic is it? BBC2 were doing shitey programmes like "I love the 70s/80s/90s" a few years ago covering such pish with the likes of Terry Cristrian waffling on about owning Chopper bikes and playing Astroids.


How about when peadophila was acceptable? It was fine for your uncles to abuse you in the 1970s,every one I know had a dabble. The was none of this "Paedo" bullshite like there is today.

Crucifixion, hanging, stoning, burning witches. One day it's all good family fun, the next, gone.

Park Porn - it's all on t'Internet now, son! Kids don't need it in hard-copy (no pun intended) anymore. They usually have more explicit videos on their mobiles, either personally directed, swapped with mates or downloaded.
