Apparently people are taking to social media to post memories of their youth in 5 words. Some examples are:
'Trolls meant something totally different.'
'I had a Blockbuster membership.'
Mine would be :
'Attached to my Perdio transistor radio.'
What about you?

SueDoku I’ll never forget Keynsham - however even at that tender age I remember thinking if his system worked so well, why isn’t he just living in luxury somewhere and not advertising on the radio?
