34 Groundbreaking "Dumb" Phones That Revolutionized Mobile Technology

The 1990s and early 2000s were a hotbed of innovation in the world of tech. Don't get me wrong, we are still living in a time of amazing leaps in technological innovation, but today we kind of expect it (An AI that can produce video? Sounds about right). Back then, we were just emerging from the analog world into the digital one, and we had no idea what was possible and what wasn't. During that time, great leaps in technology and wondrous new options were presented to us on a monthly basis. Fro…

This Mystery Woman Got Her Picture Taken With Every 90s Hollywood Celebrity Imaginable, but Who Was She?

This is one of our favorite Hollywood stories. Back in 2020 a photo album was discovered in a Belgian thrift store called Opnieuw & Co in Mortsel. It was a very unassuming pink, floral album on the outside, but inside it contained a treasure trove of Hollywood history, featuring photos of numerous cinematic icons such as Johnny Depp, Julia Roberts, William Shatner, and Harrison Ford, all pictured next to a sweet middle-aged woman with curly two-toned hair, smiling and embracing the stars .

Relive Your Childhood With a Nostalgic Trip to a 1990s Toys R Us Store

There was something special about Toys R Us . It wasn't the first toy store chain, and it certainly wasn't the only one, but every time my parents mentioned the name "Toys R Us," I would get so excited. Then, when those automatic doors opened, I would just start running. I didn't know (or care) where I was running; I just had an inner urge to sprint down every aisle to see all the toys before I started actually shopping. And when I say shopping, I mean grabbing as many toys as my little arms co…

32 GenX Childhood Snapshots to Give You a Burst of Nostalgia (June 22, 2024)

I love being Gen-X . It means I am old enough to remember a time when we didn't have the internet, the TV only had 3 channels, there were no cell phones and it was considered okay to just walk around your town looking for stuff to do. It makes me appreciate all the comforts of life we have today while also making me less anxious about life in general. people are so afraid of everything today but I still remember drinking from the garden hose and going to my friend's house without any actual way…

A Collection of 90s and Early 2000s Snacks We Totally Forgot Existed (But Would Like Back Please)

The turn of the millennium was, for lack of a better term, a lawless wasteland of foods and snacks. Before the world went health-crazy and started passing laws on what we can and cannot feed our children, our parents would just buy whatever crazy concoction the food companies dreamed up—and we ate it up! Purple ketchup? Sure! Jell-O Pudding Cereal made from 130% pure sugar? Why not! Remember that disgusting green slime stuff from Nickelodeon? They froze it and sold it to us as ice pops! And we…

1960s Fashion That Slapped So Hard We Want to Build a Time Machine and Go Shopping

Don't you find it strange that we don't have a “look” these days? If we look back exactly 100 years, to the roaring 20s, fashion had a certain look to it; you could identify that people are from the 1920s just from the way they dressed. Same for the 1940s and 50s, the 60s, 70s. 80s and 90s. But it feels like ever since the new millennium arrived, people just dress… “normal”, whatever that means.

39 Nostalgic Snapshots of 80s Malls for Veteran Mallrats Who Miss the Good Old Days

A few days ago, I uploaded a meme that jokingly suggested abandoned malls should be repurposed as Gen X senior homes , and to be honest, I can't stop thinking about it. Sure, it's a ridiculous notion—old malls don't have the facilities needed to function as retirement homes, but come on! Most of my fondest memories from the 80s and 90s are from those malls. Spending time with friends at the food court, feeding coin after coin into the arcade machines—the mall had everything we wanted, and we sp…

31 Nostalgic Technology Snapshots We All Have Stored in the Back of Our Collective Hard Drive

Isn't it wild to think about the fact that we can be nostalgic to an era that was dominated by computers, gadgets and video games ? It seems like so much time has passed and yet nothing has really changed. Obviously today's technology is far more advanced than what we had back in the 80s, 90s and early 2000s but is it really that different? The internet was slow, but it was there. Computer screens could display 256 colors (at best), yet they still transported us into dynamic, virtual worlds. If…

A Nostalgic Collection of 80s and 90s Toys That Made Our Childhood Awesome (June 9, 2024)

We know that sometimes you feel really old while talking about your childhood during the 1990s ; you feel like the younger generations are looking at you in the same way that you looked at older people talking about the 1940s when you were a child. But there's one huge difference - your childhood was awesome! You see, back in the early 20th century life kinda sucked; everyone was poor, there was no entertainment and you had to boil your food before you ate it. However, the late 20th century was…
