Why not check this out: textfiles.com
Personally, this brings back a lot of memories, both from the pre-internet, BBS days to as far back as my first Junior High School typing class (I got a 'D') when I would try to make ASCII artwork instead of practicing the home row keys (asdf jkl;).
I'm not going to say those were the golden days, but they were certainly different than these days.
There's a wealth of interesting files from days gone by here. Enjoy. I should have another post before the end of the day.
