Taping Your Favorite Show on VHS
Tons of space would have been saved in our childhood homes if the world had been blessed with DVR a few years earlier. Boxes of VHS recordings of must-see sitcoms and wrestling pay-per-views grew like weeds in our living rooms. We would spend hours trying to read the poorly-written labels, desperately attempting to figure out which one was last year's Wrestlemania. Looking back on it, this was a pretty terrible system, but with game six of the playoffs in overtime and it being a school night, you really didn't have any other choice than to push play and record at the same time.
