Things That Somehow Still Exist

Whether it's a product that was never actually effective from the start, a company with a horrible business model, or just a mother of an inconvenience, it is weird that some of these things are still around. For other questionable things, here are things that exist only because people are dumb. For some real specific memories, here's some unhealthy fast food nostalgia.

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.

This is just magical. Lord of the Rings fans' dreams just came true. The Zoom reunion brings together so many of the familiar faces from the Lord of the Rings movies. Plus, it seems like a lot of the cast genuinely gets along with one another in real life.

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.

An Unhealthy Indulgence of Fast Food Nostalgia

This quick and entertaining Tumblr thread shines light on the wild joy that is digging into watermelons with a reckless abandon, barehanded, and just feasting on them. We get a quick story from a dude who worked at a summer camp, and witnessed the feral energy that can come from such an event. Watermelons and summertime is where it's at.

Valuable Collections People Regret Getting Rid Of

We all like to think, in our own nostalgic haze, that our old toys would be worth something today. In actuality, most of your old magazines, cards and complete collection of McDonald's Transformers probably aren't worth anything. But in some rare cases, people realize 20 years after the fact that their mom threw away thousands of dollars worth of stuff. On the other side of things, here are stupid purchases people regret making.

"Edgiest" Things People Did That Backfired

People are looking back on the "edgiest" things they did in attempts to be cool, which ultimately resulted in them realizing later on down the road, that said actions were anything but cool. Whether it was punching trees to try and impress a crush, or maybe Naruto running through the halls; it'd seem the harder people tried to be cool, the further away they fell from being just that.
