It Couldn't Be Done

By Edgar Guest

Somebody said that it couldn't be done But he with a chuckle replied That "maybe it couldn't," but he would be one Who wouldn't say so till he'd tried. So he buckled right in with the trace of a grin On his face. If he worried he hid it. He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it!

Somebody scoffed: "Oh, you'll never do that; At least no one ever has done it;" But he took off his coat and he took off his hat And the first thing we knew he'd begun it. With a lift of his chin and a bit of a grin, Without any doubting or quiddit, He started to sing as he tackled the thing That couldn't be done, and he did it.

There are thousands to tell you it cannot be done, There are thousands to prophesy failure, There are thousands to point out to you one by one, The dangers that wait to assail you. But just buckle in with a bit of a grin, Just take off your coat and go to it; Just start in to sing as you tackle the thing That "cannot be done," and you'll do it.

Although we most certainly love new technological upgrades, too often, our favorite childhood past times simply vanish into thin air.  Many of the iconic classic programs that we once adored have become more glamorous and more fancy.


But for when you’re feeling super nostalgic, there are some apps you might want to download. Don’t worry, you’ll still be able to swipe around on Tinder and stream music.  You can pick and choose which parts of the ’90s to throwback.


For starters, there’s Nokia Composer. Although everyone on earth pretty much had a Nokia handset, only the coolest of kids knew how to use this programs. With the new app, you can relive your glory days and impress everyone with your ringtones.


Then of course, there’s the legendary Snake ’97 that required nothing more than some basic coordination. Since then, there’s been updated versions of the game, but the full experience means seeing every single pixelated segment of the snake’s body.


And probably the best yet? The Tamagotchi. It was the digital pet that taught us all how to deal with death. Although back in the day they were handheld devices, unrelated to phones, today they are available as smartphone pets, and it’s totally epic.  Just make sure not to check on your pet during important business meetings.
