By the title I tought you meant: "..to do their assignments." Can you imagine no backspace, no spell check, having to think of paragraph lenghts and edition before you ever started to type? I still type one finger at a time! Put me back in 1978 and I'd be dead in a week!

Students probably spent a lot more time with other people. Computers are turning me into a misanthropic hermit... Well, so are people- they suck.

Got laid. Uhm... At least pretended that their English classes taught them something as they didn't have a place to go and butcher the language. Whined.... Gossiped... In person. Yeah... that's about it.

Well we have one at the house. I used it one time. Just to see what it was like to use a typewritter. The only thing that I hated about using a typewritter was that I couldn't see what the hell I was typing. We have a different typewritter and it's sitting in my brother's room.

I think they had something called books back then. And they used some kind of tube of ink to "write" on paper.
