Okay then. I'm too young to remember the dark ages...
That is not the dark ages compare to what what my mom's grandparents had. They are much older than my dad's grandparents are.

2 of my mom's grandparents were already teenagers when the radio was invented. The other 2 grand parents my mom had were teenagers when the Wright brother flew the first airplane and cars were first widely available. All four of her grandparents came from an era that electricity either were not homes or were very uncommon.

Good thing I started my Christmas Shopping Early for my younger brother. I bought a bunch of used video games for my younger brother and I got an email notice today that one item is one back order. The problem was it was a used gameboy game that the online store claimed it was in stock. The problem with used games is there is no reading when it will be back in stock since the game was released in the early 1990s.

At least I got over a month and I have enough time to look a brick and mortar store that specialized in Video games and pop culture culture collectibles.

From other people and books. Books a great ancient invention. Either @Goofyernmost or @Mr Ferret 88 could tell you about how they were scribes(people who copied pages) before the invention of the printing press, in fact the ferret got bored after press came out so he started covering his body with the ink he had left over from that job.
Actually that sleeping monk in SSE was modeled directly after me.

We even had operators that answered when you dialed “0” on the phone.
When I was a kid I got ridiculed terribly because I was visiting my grandparents in the summer and I wanted to call my parents. I dialed 0 and got the operator and I then proceeded to ask her if she had any collect calls I could make. I knew better but panicked when she asked how she could help me.

You make that sound so old. I had a great grandparent that was killed in the Civil War and a grandfather the was in the Spanish/American War and another in WWI. Everyone of my grandparents were born in the 1800's.

For me, I had a great grandma that died when I was 13 years years old, but she was 70 when I was born. She was the one who took my dad to a trip to Disneyland when he was 11 with her staying in her room at Disneyland Hotel while my dad was in the park.

My dad on his dad's side had 2 grandparents that were born in the 1800s, but had no memory of that decade although his grandfather served in World War 1.

As far as the civil war goes, I don't think any side of the family were in the states when it happened.

Funny thing about TV commercials...
When I was younger, IIRC, the longest commercial breaks seemed to be anywhere from about 1.5-2 mins.
I’m currently watchin’ “A Bug’s Life” on FreeForm. Here’s a stopwatch screen shot from my iPhone of the last commercial break (minus about 3 secs.)...

You're always very organized. That's a good thing.

I heard on the news recently that the retailers are freaking out, because I guess the way the calendar goes this year, somehow they figure there's 6 days LESS to shop for Christmas. So a lot of them have been rolling out early deals and loss leaders, earlier than last year. (I saw that Kohls last weekend, had some sort of "early" Black Friday sale" - :p )

Hey, @Tony the Tigger , are you aware of the above, regarding your record store? You might want to start hanging up a few holiday decorations there a bit earlier this year. :)
