Time passes . . .

$5.50 for a bottle of hooch at the LCBO? Them's was the good old days.

My first paycheque from McDonald's was for one part-time shift, and was under $10 (that was a while ago - 1980). I cashed it, gave it to an older-looking friend and told him to buy from the LCBO whatever he could with it. We got a cheap 26oz of gin.

I don't often buy spirits. A few weeks ago I was looking at Smirnoff vodka. 750 ml (26 oz) for $25. Which, if you regress back to 1980 (http://www.bankofcanada.ca/rates/related/inflation-calculator/), would be $9.

So, all seems pretty much the same.
