80s Fashion Statements That Show Why We Moved On

While the 80s technically started 40 years ago, it's probably best to not think about that part. The 80s did some things with hair that many people are still just now recovering from. And while it was a time of loud pants filled with questionable butts, there are still things to miss. Here's some powerful nostalgia for the 80s and 90s kids.

Tumblr Thread: Extreme Chompin' T-Rex is Living His Best Life

If there's one nice thing about being an adult, it's that you can bankroll at least some of your childhood dreams. Jurassic Park is a timeless classic, and many of us have our own personal reasons to say, want to believe in twitter updates from Jurassic Park or in this case, buy cool toys we never got to have.

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.

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.

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.
