People Tell Their Age In Non-Numerical Fashion

Like anyone else, our best years are behind us. Or at least they seem that way, since human beings are pretty much psychologically incapable of remembering things accurately. We all want to look back at our VHS tapes and dangerous toys and say that's when we had it all figured out or "young people could never understand this," but in the end it's really just a way of dating yourself. But hey, that's nostalgia, baby.

Nostalgic Twitter Thread On Wild, Obscure, And Cursed TV Shows

Some of these television programs give off straight up fever dream vibes. Seriously, I'd imagine that some of these shows were aired at very unique times. Maybe during those early hours of the morning where you might find yourself caught in a dreamlike state, unable to fall back asleep, and watching whatever you can find on TV. So, naturally you settle on a promising TV show like Snorks.

People Explain The Black Markets at Their Schools

It happened all the time. Some kid would start collecting walnuts that fell on school property, or a teacher would ban rubber bands, and all of a sudden there was a new schoolyard black market. It was a confusing, weird and stupid lesson in basic economics. For those aching for simpler times, here are the school memes for the mostly educated.

Twitter Thread: People Show Their Age With Things Young People Wouldn't Get

Sooner or later, everyone becomes a relic of a bygone era. There's a moment we all have when some new way to play a movie comes out, and we remember the now-obsolete technology when it was new. It happened with VHS tapes and it will somehow happen with all-digital content. It's sort of exciting and sort of scary, but to make ourselves feel safer at the end of the day we can always indulge in powerful images of sensory nostalgia.

Now-Obsolete Technology That People Remember When It Was New

Aside from the nostalgic powers of remembering old things we used to like, there is something really weird about being able to look back in your own life and see the signs of changing times. It's mind-boggling to think that only a few years ago, people were paying big money for VHS players and texting each other heartfelt messages using only a number pad. Time doesn't just make things obsolete, popularity and money can ruin good things too.

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.

Outdated Advice That Just Doesn't Make Sense Anymore

It's not like anyone wants to give you bad advice. Well, maybe these hilariously bad and dumb life pro tips might be exactly that. This incredibly dumb financial advice also falls into the category of "straight up don't do this." That said, times change and some previously ubiquitous good ideas find themselves no longer belonging, whether it be due to evolving technology, changing social ideas, or the rapid decline and corruption of various institutions.

Anyone with a few decades on them can remember a time when toys were heavy, sharp, fast, toxic and scalding. Whether it was a playground slide that would sear the flesh off your palms or a chemistry set that could have made biker crank, people had a different idea of what was considered safe for children. People remember the wildly dangerous activities they participated in as children.

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.
