17 people share a life experience they had that no longer exists.


Dial-up internet, being kind and rewinding the VHS tape, making plans from a pay phone, getting concert tickets in person, or smoking cigarettes on an airplane--the world is rapidly changing every day...

So, when a Reddit user asked, 'What's an experience you've had that no longer exists?' people were ready for a blast from the past.

The Star Trek Experience in Las Vegas. The ride/show part was cheesy, but fun. The entry to the ride was a museum of Star Trek history and memorabilia. But the real gem was the restaurant: half TNG Ten Forward setting/half DS9 Quark's Bar setting. Costumed characters would drop by your table to chat. It was all beautifully themed and immersive.- TwoDrinkDave

Touching a CRT TV and feeling the fuzz, the direct connection to the interference caused by the electron gun powered by a power planet and modified by invisible light picked up by a weirdly shaped bit of metal.- FleefTalmeef
