Things That Were Nice About Pre-Internet Times

Yeah, it's nice having access to better tv at the click of a button. Of course it's better to be able to video chat with a friend who lives across the country. It's definitely convenient to be able to solve a heated argument by looking up the cast list for The Lion King. But also it was nice to not have to walk around with a box that makes you angry to look at. You could chalk it up partially to nostalgia, but there were a few nice things about the modern dark ages where VCRs ruled and we used to be excited about a re-run we liked.

Nostalgic Snacks from the 90s and 00s

The 90s were an amazing time for senseless and gimmicky candies, and it was great. Everyone had a skateboard and no one really knew how to skateboard. They had green ketchup. No one knew what made it green, but the kids in the commercials sure made it seem extremely radical.  Snack companies went as far as basically just giving kids a toothpaste tube filled with neon colored syrup. Here's an unhealthy indulgence of fast food nostalgia, as well as some powerful nostalgic memes.

Features of Homes that Rich People Wouldn't Understand

Most people don't have a whole lot of money for designer tin cans and entire matching cup sets. Being the resourceful humans that we are, there are certain features of many homes that rich people just wouldn't get. Matching towels? Ha! You want a new TV just because it's sort of broken? Who are you the King of Rhodesia? These extremely common moments stand in stark contrast to some of the most expensive things people have witnessed. Here are some wild cases of rich people being out of touch.

Children Of Horrible Cooks Share Their Pain

Many of us grew up with less than stellar cooks at the helms of our households, and we bear the scars of the past. Cooking isn't intuitive, and more often than not a rushed parent just needs to get something on the table, even if it will become a negative memory. Some of us still don't eat certain things because we lived in a world of bone-dry chicken and boiled broccoli for years. For some other garbage tasting experiences, here are the worst things people tasted.

stories of people whos parents were bad cooks | Posted by u/KnowNothingOfJavert 14 hours ago 5 3 e S is most horrifying thing parents did food?

90s Nostalgia to Dip Back Into Those Core Memories

The good old 1990s. Sure, there were as many massive problems going on during that decade as there were in any other, but to many people growing up back then it was more about beanie babies and delicious-smelling markers than it was about geopolitics. For an extra trip in the ol' time machine, here are some nostalgic junk foods from the 90s.

Tumblr Thread: Weird and Stupid School Stories

Students usually don't have anything better to do than be weird, like the ones in this Tumblr post who worshiped a stuffed octopus. It doesn't take too much reminiscing to come across a time when someone at school did something weird as hell. As it turns out, that weirdness extends to awkward moments at high school reunions.

Nostalgic 90s Flashbacks

Ah, yes, sweet nostalgia. The fact that we don't have to get off the computer (internet) anymore while people are using the phone is a true blessing. Or how about not having to type in "www" because the browser was incapable of guessing it? Sometimes, change is a good and welcomed thing.

Times at School a Popular Kid Destroyed Their Reputation

There was always a sort of extended leniency toward crap that popular kids could get away with, but sometimes they either flew too close to the sun or played a part in some high school's "incident". Sometimes it wasn't even up to them, but that's just how things shake out sometimes. Sometimes they come back for round two and make high school reunions awkward.

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.

BS Reasons People Got Punished At School

School justice is a minefield of extremely arbitrary, always changing no-tolerance policies where you're just as likely to get punished for something someone else did. You never forget a stupid reason for being punished. School is a jungle, and it can lead to what people describe as their school's incident, and can continue on to awkward moments at school reunions.

Sweet 80s and 90s Nostalgia to Rekindle Forgotten Memories

There's something special about seeing a product or thing that you haven't thought about once in 20 years. There's something satisfying about those little "a-ha" moments you get from remembering a toy you used to have, a commercial you saw over and over again or seeing a twitter thread that takes a voyage through being in school in the 90s.

Moments That Show How Kids Are Dumb Little Wierdos

Kids may be learning still, but that doesn't mean the things they do aren't strange and idiotic. Kids are weird and dumb. That's just how they're gonna be, and you can't do much about it. I mean, you can help them learn from their mistakes or whatever, but you can also laugh at kids for being stupid and weird.
