24 Pictures That Will Fill You With Nostalgia. And Rage.

pictures

Time sure does fly. Don’t you sometimes feel like the 90s were only 10 years ago? You are not the only one. But, and brace yourself for this little fun fact, 1994 is as far away from today, as we are from 2040! I know! And if that is not enough to make you feel old, this list sure will. So turn back before it’s too late!

Oh good, you’re still here! I commend you for your bravery, now let’s get on with it! For us, people born in the 90s or before, it is quite shocking, not to mention hurtful, when kids today have no idea what a beloved gadget from our childhood is. Some of the greatest technological advances of our time are now, not only obsolete, but forgotten as well! Here is a list of items, whose place now is apparently in a museum. Thanks Providr for this list… I think…

1. Floppy disk

What do you mean someone 3D printed the ‘Save’ icon? This is how you transferred data before CDs were invented. You could fit 1.44 MB of information on one of these beauties! No, that’s not a typo: megabytes.

2. Game Boy

Kids today will never know true joy. It’s just sad…

3. MP3 Player

Yes, we had a gadget that served only for storing and playing music and was the size of a… well, it was quite big. But, if you had one of these you were super cool! Really!

4. Steve Irwin

Steve Irwin was a real legend! Everyone knew his name! Even if you didn’t watch his show, you knew the the Crocodile Hunter!

5. Window crank

We didn’t need to go to the gym! We did enough exercise just opening the car window!

6. The Walkman

If you think MP3 players were massive, then you’ve forgotten all about this bad boy. Kids today don’t know the pain of having to carry this thing around, while being super careful not to move it too much, or it would skip…

7. The Twin Towers

The attack happened in 2001. There are 15-year-olds today who weren’t even born then! God, now I really do feel old…

8) Sum 41

While I’m sure Sum 41 is a great band, you can’t possibly put it in the same category as all the truly legendary classic rock bands from the 60s and 70s! That’s blasphemy!

9. Neopets

Neopets taught us responsibility and empathy! And there’s nothing like your Neopet dying, because you forgot to feed it, to teach you all about guilt! How are kids today going to learn all these valuable life lessons, when they don’t even know what a Neopet is!

10. Generation 4 iPods

Yeah, and we were talking about MP3 player and Walkmans… How could we expect kids to know what those were, when a Generation 4 iPod is now museum material.

11. Nintendo 64

This is outrageous! Twitter user D. L. Jordan writes, “My sister just sent a picture of an N64 in a museum in Florida.”

12. Flip phones

Oh, this one is a classic! Everyone wanted to have a flip phone! It was the coolest thing ever! And now it’s in a museum! Great.

13. Overhead projector

Seeing one of these in the classroom meant something fun was about to go down!

14. VCR tape

There was nothing worse than renting a movie and seeing that whoever had it before hadn’t rewound the tape! And we still use the term ‘rewind’, but the younger generations probably don’t even know why.

15. A Bug’s Life

Nick Caville tweeted, “A Bug’s Life is now in a museum. How old do you feel?” Now this is getting ridiculous! This film came out in 1998. That’s 19 years ago! How does that belong in a museum?

16. Classic console games

Twitter user d. says “Saniya just asked ‘what are these?’ lol made me and @MajorTaylor feel old!” I doubt she really laughed out loud… These are our childhood, that’s what these are!

17. The Titanic

Now, this can’t really be blamed on age. Even those of us who were around when the movie came out (which was in 1997, BTW) weren’t born when the real ship sank (which was in 1912, just FYI), and we still knew it was a true story. The ship I mean, not the romance. Someone needs to brush up on their history, I think…

18. Boy bands

Millennials don’t really know how they feel about boy bands, whether they think they’re cool or not. But, they have heard about the most famous ones, right? You know, Backstreet Boys, NSYNC, Blue? Well, not really. Twitter user missheng says, “My little cousin has never heard of *NSYNC.”

19. Ginuwine

Not sure if I should laugh or cry… Why, you wonder? Because of this:

20) The Fresh Prince of Bel Air

Now I definitely know what to do: cry and then cry some more.

21. Nintendo consoles

Wait, so if we owned something that came out after we were born, which makes us older than the thing, and if that something is now in a museum, are those museum-owners sending us super subtle signals that we belong in a museum too? Rude!

22. Computers

Twitter user Meso Da Chi wrote, “Look what I just found in a history museum. Feel old yet?” Hey, I still own one of those! Granted, I don’t use it, but still… It’s a nice big space waster!

23. Tapes

Kids today don’t know about the greatest romance of all time: the love affair of a cassette tape and a pencil! And they never will, since one half now lives locked away in a glass case in a Sony museum.

pictures

24. Burning CDs

One of the best ‘Eureka!’ moments of our childhoods was when we realized that Nero Burning ROM was called that because Nero burnt Rome! And we especially enjoyed burning those re-writable CDs! How cool was it to be able to use the same CD for more than one thing! Oh, man! Those were the days!
