90s Nostalgia from Simpler Times

At this point we can pretty conclusively say that there have been simpler times. So here are some memory-jogging images of things like toys and TV shows for people who grew up in the 90s and maybe a little bit into the early 00s. Hey man, it's something. And here are some nostalgic memes for the 80s and 90s kids.

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.

Tumblr Story: An Unsung Hero With A Heart Of Gold

So, this Tumblr story is a wildly enjoyable trip. The plot line, politics, drama, etc. really immerse the reader's mind in a different realm for a while. It's fun. Pour one out for Evil Chancellor Traytor who just wanted to improve the lives of those around him, while those very people assumed he had nothing but dark intentions. A true saga of the unsung hero.

Dude Uses Free Time to Sort Through Ocean Plastic

Rob Arnold has spent a dizzying amount of time sifting through washed up litter, and has some interesting and informative things to say about the plastic he's seen. Some of this stuff can even be traced back to specific incidents from decades ago, which is crazy to think about.

This wonderful clip from 1994 has made the round many a time. It's no surprise. We get to watch an amped up Vin Diesel talk about his passion for the Street Sharks Toys. Apparently, the leather vest had to be there as well. Right on, Vin.

Dumb and Ridiculous Design Failures with Room for Improvement

People seem to have an aversion to proofreading, and that can lead to a lot of really not good signs and designs. Whether it's a sign attempt that reads as accidentally filthy and sinister, or just a bootleg toy that makes no damn sense, we live in a world with design failures that need some help.

Funny, filthy and stupid design fails.

Disappointing Purchases People Made After Being Misled By Ads

We've all been woo'd by a good commercial at some point in our lives. Especially when you're a kid, Nerf really makes it look like having a sweet blaster will make you the coolest kid on the street. We've all gone crazy at some point for those ads for laser tag games and frozen drink makers, and many of us never learn and keep making stupid purchases far into our adult years. That said, this isn't always our fault, sometimes products are straight up misleading and manipulative.

Nostalgia Fuel from The 90s

There are two things that make us wish we could go back in time, straight to the 90s. The first one is the general annoyance of adult life and all the complete BS you have to deal with in the working world. The second is sweet, sweet 90s nostalgia. And an added third I guess would be that we could bet on Super Bowl winners.

Did you know there were slinky tricks? Neither did we. Apparently this guy is pretty good at them. I mean, if it's your job to stand at a booth that sells slinkies all day, you probably get good at slinkies. The camera can hardly even catch this skill, my god.
