    • If you're 16 now, then you missed the real glory days by a couple of years. DVDs were released when you were (depending on your birthday) only one year old. The major production companies stopped releasing VHS when you were ~10.

      You may remember them, and even used them. As far as the glory days, I grew up in one of the largest (per capita) movie markets, am ten years older, and I would say that I barely saw the "glory days" when Blockbuster was still profitable and Hollywood Video was trying to muscle in on the fortunes to be made.

  1. Not a new idea.  Some of the Leisure Suit Larry games used to ask similar 'adult' questions for age verification.  Fortunately they were easily looked up at the library.  (Not online, online didn't exist yet.) 

    • Maybe THAT should be the image, then: a library, full of books made from paper.  Or perhaps a microfilm machine…

  2. I'm 17 and I know. And i'm 100% sure my 13 and 15 year old siblings do as well.

    I say they should have waited on this one a few more years. :P

    • Oh look at how proud you are! Want a cookie? What a bright person! Get your IQ tested maybe you can join the genius club!

  3. lol'd, we were jsut discussing this over the weekend with 1 of my friends, we were at his place and his kids were wathcing bambi(and we joined them, lmfao) and were talkinb about how his 9 yr old didn't know what a vhs was. she thought it was an old type of book, lols(remember how they came in the cases)

  4. I'm a Hundred percent sure it's a VHS cassette.  Haven't seen those in a long time, not since I started going with DVDs…

  5. Funny, but overall useless. I'd be like showing me a picture of an 8-inch floppy disk and expecting me to not know what it is, and those were used about 40 years ago…twice my age.

  6. this is a VHS casette, VHS stands for VIDEO HOME SYSTEM, it’s an implementation of FM on magnetic tape. and holds just a bit over 400m of magnetic tape for a total capacity of 3.5 hours of NTSC video.

  8. I was the first American GI to buy a VHS player/recorder, while stationed at Prum Air Station, Germany, in 1979.

    It entertained lonely Americans at that remote mountain top until I shipped out, June 4th, 1982! Movies such as “The Bible”, “Cleopatra”, “Doctor Doolittle”, cost us $135.00 EACH, in the BX! Still have them!

  9. it is actually confusing. does it want you to enter your age or does it want you to answer the question?
