Life Before Cell Phones 1 of 5: Playing “Angry Birds” in the days before Smartphones
In order to play Angry Birds before smartphones, you literally had go out in the wilderness, capture a nest’s-worth of baby birds, safely transport them to the nearest abandoned construction site, and hope like hell there just so happened to be approximately ten pigs scattered all over the rusty beams of the building’s frame.
Once you completed all that, you had to wind up like Nolan Ryan and fling the still-living baby birds, one by one, at the skeletal frame, with hope that the structure had been so poorly slapped together in the first place the soft blubbery impact of bird upon metal makes the beams sway just enough so that loose parts of it collapse onto and crush some of the pigs.
