        The greatest was the Dick Tracy watch it was awesome, i hope to one day get it fixed and use it again.

    • Urban

      I had this watch. Got sent to the office for playing it in school. Back then they paddled your ass.

    its kinda sad that my future kids will never know #4

    • ydodonutshave2die

      its just about as sad as the fact that we never used telegraphs…

      • Dave Gal

        Or 8-tracks.

        • amrith777

          I used 8-tracks–and records.

    • whosmike

      I am 28 and I remember beta, but my old lady is 24 and has no clue wtf that is.

    • equalizermax

      It's also sad that your great-great grand kids will never know about blu-rays…

  • HLe

    #16 awesome! It was so hi-tech it's unreal.

    • r@f.com

      hours and hours of fun for me!

  • http://www.facebook.com/autohagiographer Adriana Byproxymoron Garcia

    It doesn't feel like a lot of these rad things happened too long ago…then I look up the year they happened…then I do the math…then I feel old.

    • Internet_star

      That is because you are old. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • http://www.facebook.com/autohagiographer Adriana Byproxymoron Garcia

        22 isn't that old….

        • Pedobear

          Yes…yes you are.

      • Internet_star

        I'm 18 so yeah… From my perspective…

    • pistol pete

      you kids are not old enough to remember most of this.

      • http://www.facebook.com/autohagiographer Adriana Byproxymoron Garcia

        Though I may not have been born or still a wee child when some of these first came out, they were still ever present in my life. That is if you were implying that I wasn't old enough to remember.

    • Patricio

      I know what you mean. I saw #30 and i said to myself, "1995 isn't that old!". Then I thought about it…and then I realized, yes…it is old. BTW, does anyone use AOL anymore???

      • miles

        my mom does.

  • ALT

    #9 actually… nope, anyone care to enlighten me?

    • MiddleSchoo


      • knuckledonkey

        Still no. Stussy, the clothing brand?

  • ThatGuy


    Yo I was such a boss at that shit.

    • Krystal Wulf

      I used to draw those all the time.

    • Jimothy

      I would turn them into dollar signs.

  • Tee6

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Andrew-Connolly/555230430 Andrew Connolly

  • karma

      • Patricio

        Thank you. Macho Man is probably "OH YEAH"-ing in his grave right now.

    • equalizermax

      RIP Ultimate Warrior… Hulk Hogan your next….

  • Anakrusix


  • Sauru

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1521541108 cmonstur


    I used to draw these on every surface I came in contact with, but I never knew what they were. I thought I was such a BAMF.

  • waryee

    #30 lmao AOL. I'll admit it i had it, but boy did that quickly turn to shit

    • black27696

      Remember that turning point when combined with the phone charges and AOL's charge, cable internet became cheaper? It was then that AOL tried to get you to subscribe to their service while using high-speed, and gave a bunch of bullshit reasons that it would be beneficial.

    • Vagina Jones

      I had "CompuServe" before that… damn seems like a long time ago. I would reformat the AOL disks and put copies of games like "Scorched Earth" on them.

      • Ken

        I still remember my clunky IBM Aptiva and playing Duke Nukem 3D all night. Also remember trying to find porn clips online small enough to fit on a floppy disk. Tough task back in 1996.

  • jp34

    #19 i had that same pound puppy when i was a kid

    • OllieB

      Kids wearing his pants over his trousers lol

      • Regular joe

  • Meeshbee

    #26 just blew my mind.

    • StaticFX

      why? we never had nerf guns like that. we had crappy guns like this: http://www.instructables.com/image/FIUQ11PF2FRVM0

      • MacNCheesePro

        Yeah, that looks like one of the much newer nerf guns. Like the one I just bought last week (CS-35) so my daughter and I could have Nerf battles in the back yard. Yes, I'm an awesome father, lol!

      • Meeshbee

        Lol. Not the gun. The jacket. The pairing of the jacket with the phone. For some reason that's messing with me in a weird way.

        • b.grylls

          the hair too

    • The D

      That Nerf gun is new adn unless you are still a child it is not from your childhood; also I don't remember cameras in my phones when I was growing up.

  • HayzeOne

    #28 I remember having one of these!!! I think I need to go shed a few tears for my lost homies.

    • GreyGhost9

      I still have mine , i refused to let me mom sell it on ebay.

  • bryan

    I never realised you could join those up!im gonna go practice on them now!(i really am sad aren't I)

    • Benjiman

      was thinkin exactly the same ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Servo

    #15 – Gak was awesome. Though this gif makes it creepy and disturbing.
    #20 – ah, good ol' Larry. Probably still looking for love and those damned Missing Floppies.

    • newscot

      Gak was always kinda creepy and disturbing…

      • SkyVader

        …ditto the hooker

      • absolutcarcrazy

        It didn't taste very well either.

    • JBinNC

      now we just need a picture of Floam.

    • Spivias

      lol i made gak in chemistry today

  • Ryan Smith

    i don't recognize #20 can someone enlighten me?

    • Johnny Sixarms

      Leisure suit Larry. Sierra games fucking rule! I just replayed the first 3 police quest games. Tons of fun.

  • DocIcetea

    For a second, I thought it said "Fuck Windows" right under "Online".

  • Nathan

    #10 Ever since Wednesday was played by Christina Ricci, I have had a slight crush on Christina Ricci… so twisted and yet… so … hot…

    • Guest commenter

      There is not a damn thing wrong with that. Same applies to Sam was played by Alyssa Milano, except I don't think that is twisted.

      • KyleGamgee

        The nice thing about both of them is that they have deigned to grace us with some nudity, which has been much appreciated.

    • norb

      Beat me it… this movie too started my lifelong crush on her… and she's still so hot!

    • Vagina Jones

      'Casper' is what did it for me. I mean her playing in it….. Not like I wanted to fuck the ghost, if thats what you were thinking…sicko..

      • Nathan

        I was about to say, some people have different needs, but its good to know you explained yourself. lol

  • HankVatican

    #19 – Tighty-whities over the jammies FTW!
