Nostalgic Junk Foods of The Swingin' 90s

The junk food we grew up with holds a special place in many of our hearts, like this unhealthy indulgence of fast food nostalgia. The 90s were an interesting time for food. Ketchup was blue, food could be "X-treme" and people were trying to fit sugar into every last discoverable crevice on a piece of cereal. Good times. Here are some nostalgic memes for the 80s and 90s kids.

Total Downsides About Being An Adult

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the various downsides of being an adult that teenagers don't realize. It's funny, when we're younger we can give ourselves over to this notion that when we grow up everything's going to be a whole lot better; but then you get there, and it's just a new world of unforeseen responsibilities. Suddenly, you find yourself craving the days of your youth when all you had to worry about was getting to bed at a reasonable time for school the next morning. If that.

Random Things People Were Paranoid About As Kids

The rampant imaginations we have as children can make for some wild, irrational fears. That grandma who rapped off a horror story about dragon flies being able to sew people's mouths shut was really on one. Zero chill with that. Just picturing that as an adult is enough to give someone the chills.

Things That Got Way Harder With Age

Someone on AskReddit got a thread going about the things that people could do as kids that became way harder when they got older. It's funny how that works. Time does its thing, and all of a sudden, doing stuff like playing around on the dang monkey bars or screaming just cause you feel like it are completely ridiculous things to do as an adult. Getting older kind of sucks.

Things People Liked as Kids but Hate as Adults

As you age, your sense of self changes, and you realize that your personality is based mostly on commercials and the fact that you used to have more cartilage in your knees. Aging starts at your first encounter with utter BS and continues with factors you didn't anticipate about adulthood, but in the end, you're better for it.

People's First Encounters with Total BS

Everyone has a memory from their childhood that made them first realize that adults are at worst full of hate and at best, full of shit. There are blatant cases of favoritism, obvious lies, and straight up unfair policies. Sometimes students rebelled against unfair school rules, but typically you just had to roll with it.
