The last gift spawned something else entirely -- the 1960s introduced us to computer dating. The 1960s sport carried many of the same hazards and thrills as virtual matchmaking today.Computers did exist in the '60s, in some form -- not personal computers, but computers nonetheless.Y., to Saint-Bernard-de-Lacolle, Quebec, Monday, Aug. quality=70&strip=all&w=300" data-large-file="https://shawglobalnews.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/cpt500137542_high-e1421006619118.jpg? quality=70&strip=all&w=483" /A group of asylum seekers walk down the street as they are escorted from their tent encampment to be processed at Canada Border Services in Lacolle, Quebec, Canada August 11, 2017." data-medium-file="https://shawglobalnews.files.wordpress.com/2017/08/haitiasylum.jpg? quality=70&strip=all&w=300" data-large-file="https://shawglobalnews.files.wordpress.com/2017/08/haitiasylum.jpg? quality=70&strip=all&w=720" /President Donald Trump reacts before speaking at a rally at the Phoenix Convention Center, in Phoenix, Ariz., on Tuesday, August 22, 2017.In the late 1970s, Chuck Barris was a patron of the arts to starving artists like Paul Reubens, aka Pee-wee Herman.Reubens expressed his affection for the producer, who died on Tuesday at 87, as he recalled his 14 appearances on Barris’ late 1970s hit “The Gong Show.” Before that, he appeared three times as a contestant — in his nerdy Herman persona — on Barris’ “The Dating Game.” Reubens received AFTRA scale payments, 0 in prize money if he won on “Gong Show,” and even residuals for reruns. In the book, he claimed to have worked for the CIA as an assassin during the 1960s and ’70s, a claim which the CIA denied.
