--------------------------------------------------------------------
Somehow We Survived

If you lived as a child in the 1940s, 50s, 60s or even the 70s, looking back, it's hard to believe that we have lived as long as we have.

Our baby cots were covered with bright coloured lead-based paint. We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors, or cupboards, and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets.

As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts or air bags. Riding in the back of a bakkie on a warm day was always a special treat.

We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle. Horrors!!

We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times we learned to solve the problem.

We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on. No one was able to reach us all day. No mobile phones. Unthinkable. We got cuts and broke our bones and broke our teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents. They were accidents. No one was to blame but us. Remember accidents?

We had rock fights and fist fights and punched each other and got black and blue and learned to get over it.

We ate cupcakes, bread and butter, and drank cordial but we were never overweight. Why, because we were always outside playing. We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and nobody died from this.

We did not have Playstations, Nintendo 64, video games, 99 channels on dish, video shops, DVDs, surround sound, mobile phones, personal computers, Internet chatrooms, ... we just had friends. We went outside and found them. We rode bikes or walked to a friend's home and knocked on the door, or rung the bell or just walked in and talked to them. Imagine such a thing. Without asking a parent! By ourselves! Out there in the cold cruel world! Without a guardian. How did we do it?

We made up games with sticks and tennis balls and ate worms and although we were told it would happen, the worms did not live inside us forever.

Sports had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Some students weren't as smart as others so they failed a grade and were held back to repeat the same grade - horrors!! Tests were not adjusted for any reason.

Our actions were our own. Consequences were expected. No one to hide behind. No one to blame. The idea of our parents bailing us out if we broke a law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law, imagine that!

Our generation has produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors, ever. The past 50 years have seen an explosion of innovation and new ideas. We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned how to behave ourselves.

I'm glad I had my childhood when I did.

Александр, я просто поражен! Ведь это ж чистой воды плагиат. Может все-таки стоит попытаться получить "сиксильён доларов"? Ведь, по сути, эти "нехорошие люди" присвоили себе авторские права на Ваш перевод.

Понятное дело плагиат в бывшем "Совке" и плагиат на западе - разные вещи, но все же, есть ли какой-нибудь способ "запатентовать" свое творение? Чтобы, в случае чего, можно было "наказать гадов"?

Александр

"Сборная солянка" May 14, 2006

Вся статья собрана из самых разных источников - думаю, четырёх-пяти, не меньше.

Я, скажем, сразу узнал кусок из запомнившегося и блестящего выступления сборной Беларуси в КВН.

Да ну его!

Мне приятно, что текст этот живет, всем нравится,
и никто не смог понять, что это нерусский написал.

Как сказал один шапочно-виртуальных знакомый
"If someone reports that my site has been copied
I'll probably be flattered out of my senses..."


Там вся страница из чужих кусков.

Удачи.

Насколько одна баба сказала, права закрепляются с
момента публикации автоматически. В моем случае -
это anekdot.ru Димы Вернера.

А может все там все сложно и печально. Обсудить
бы не мешало...

Удачи
