Question How Far Back Do You Remember?

Not only am I bored but have you ever stop to think? What some of your first memories are or where?

I sincerely remember waking up when I was 3 years old. I don't think I remember anything before that.

If I remember from Psych classes, you don't normally remember much earlier than 3 years old. I remember quite a lot from 4-5 years old; kindergarten and stuff.

Ummm ... last week?

Dude, where's my car?

LOL

About 3 years old is what I remember as well - I remember my mom's 29th birthday like it was yesterday as a matter of fact and I was 3 years and 6 weeks old - she wanted a red convertible (pipe dream of course) and my dad gave her a red matchbox convertible (a Ford Galaxy convertible, actually) as a gag gift. We were at my grandparent's beach house on Long Beach Island in NJ. I also remember riding in the car when I was in what passed for a child seat back then in my dad's 1963 Corvair, and also 3rd birthday. Don't have much before that. But those memories are crystal clear.

I can remember my mother's dog, Scooter. He was put to sleep when I was almost three. I remember when I got my very first bed. It was an adult size twin that I used until I was 19. I was three. And I remember when my sister was born. I would go with my father to the hospital and my mother would give me a Matchbox car and a cheese and cracker Handisnack. My sister was born when I was 3 1/2.

So I guess 3 is about the average age to remember things.

i remember vividly being locked in my room by my brothers when i was about 3 1/2 because i kept trying to watch them play atari, and i was supposed to be asleep. so, because it was summer and my window was open, i managed to get the screen up, hopped out on the roof, walked over to the awning over the back door, and shimmied down a splintered wooden post to the ground. i then proceeded to ring the doorbell. i don't think my brothers were quite sure what to make of me standing there in underwear with a brushburn down my entire chest and stomach. i got to watch them play atari until my mom came home though.

call shenanigans on it if you will, but i vividly remember pounding my playmobil airplane against the door for them to let me out of my room before i decided on making the stupendous choice that i did, and the thought running through my head of weather to jump down to the driveway. i never was the sharpest tool in the shed...

Man, I feel old. Atari at 3.5 years old! When I was 3.5 the NV were preparing for the Tet offensive, the Doors were causing trouble on Ed Sullivan, McNamara quit, and LSD was declared a drug.

I have two distinct memories from when we lived in Ohio (moved to Chicago when I was 2 1/2) one was of a Halloween costume my folks made me (I was a TV made out of a painted cardboard box).

More solid memories are from probably 3+ years.

Trust me, Chrisbert - you are NOT old

We moved to California when I was three, and I have some memories prior to that of our home in Wyoming - the pond in the park across the street, the stairs in our house, our neighbors (specifically the one who would babysit me). That's about it.

I remember when my grandmother got my ***** all bent in my diaper, darn, that hurt!

Uh, then, I remember laying on my back on this big boulder at Rehoboth Beach, I especially remember the way it felt and sometimes, I can still feel it when I lie on my back at strange and unexpected times. Not sure what age I was, but my sister tells me I was eating bugs at that time. Yummy!

i remember probably one of the worst things i've done in my early years (ie, 2 - 10) . I recall being at my nanny's house, I must of been between 2 - 3.5, and I remember discovering this thing in a big flowerpot called dirt.

So my friend and I, grabbed this "dirt" and began throwing it at the other kids, I can't remember if I knew it was wrong at the time but I still did it.. felt kinda evil!

THe next memory was me falling down the stairs in the same house. maybe that was my personal punishment

Even stuff at 3-ish I dont remember much... maybe walking into a room or sitting on a couch. The earliest memory that really sticks in my mind was when I was 6. My best friend was a girl named Patty and she died in a fire and I remember being told about it and I swear it felt like the end of the world. To this day I still remember her and get choked up about it.

I was thinking the same thing - when I was 3, it was 1965:

LBJ was president
Viet Nam was in its building years - the first major troop deployments to Viet Nam were going on.
Woodstock hadn't even been thought of yet
The Sound of Music premiered, as well as Dr. Zhivago
Books: Ralph Nader's "Unsafe at Any Speed" and "The Autobiography of Malcolm X"
Firsst Class stamp was 5 cents and a gallon of regular gas was an astronomical, "pushed up by the war in Viet Nam" 35 cents a gallon.

Atari ... HA!

'53 here

Ike was president.
Viet Nam was - nothing.
The janitor at school came into the auditorium during band rehearsal to tell us that JFK was shot.
Everybody had tiger tails on their anteneas from their local Esso gas stations. "Put a tiger in your tank." Gas stations used to give away free stuff like that all the time.

I remember the Union76 orange ball on the antennae. And, I remember having a crush on the Romper Room chick.

I remember standing on the kitchen floor, looking at the calendar: OCTOBER 1972, with the year in red letters. I was 3, just turned 3 the month prior.

I remember getting a toy piano at late 3 early 4. I also remember spooking my folks that very day.... anyone remember the old Universal "jingle" that went with the Universal logo? I played it on one hearing, pitch-correct. They looked at me like I was some kinda freak or something.

Sadly, that's the end of my musical prowess.

The funny thing is, I don't remember the 80's.

Much.
