The hostess trolley. Bar the unfortunately sexist name and the possibility of food poisoning, yes, I can see a use.

I had to Google that. We have those too, outside though under the overhang of the building. Handy.

Tools and machines built with solid heavy parts. They don't make em like they used to.

Also cast iron. You really need to buy antique or take out a loan to get a proper pan.

Yeah, I have a large Dutch oven I like, but I've ruined the enamel.

The ones that are not enameled, they've changed the manufacturing process and the surface isn't as smooth. There are a few companies doing it the old way, but their pans are expensive.

iPods. I'm truly surprised people prefer streaming. And parents not disciplining their children (in any way).
