Rattlesnake ranches and reptile farms were among my favorites.
The best (and to me, clearest) example of how much has changed is this one. When I was in high school, you could get in your car, drive to any town that had a bank, walk in with a grocery bag filled with $20,000 in rumpled, small bills, open a savings account (with no ID), sign a signature card, take your copy and a (free) bank book, and walk out the door. Compare that to opening a bank account now.
Ron Collins, you have no idea how many people have all but called me a liar. It was just beyond their imagination. Perhaps there is someone out there who can verify my story. :)
