11 Things That Used to Be Fun But Got Ruined by Technology - 11 Points Countdown
written by Sam Greenspan

I've got another new episode of the 11 Points Countdown this week, talking about the stuff that's been ruined by technology. I can't believe I forgot to include the library card catalog as one of the options.

This week I'm joined for the third time by Colin Marshall (who was previously called Niles Crane during episodes on good things about high gas prices and overrated U.S. landmarks.)

If you like this video, please take a sec to subscribe to the YouTube channel. You'll get to see new episodes before anyone else and it will help a lot with the show.







Here are the full results of the poll (highlight the first 11 to avoid spoilers)...
  1. Catching up with people you haven't seen in a while
  2. Dinner conversation
  3. Time off from work where they couldn't reach you
  4. Getting letters from friends
  5. Walking through the video store searching for a movie
  6. Prank phone calls
  7. Buying books
  8. Making mistakes without having them permanently preserved
  9. Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue being titillating
  10. Bar arguments/trivia nights
  11. Not knowing what photos looked like until they got developed
