      • Turrebo

        Actually, "1st" is also a kind of nostalgia, so thumbs up (just this one time).

        • MylesofStyles

          Right. All kinds of "1st" comments appeared on the screen when I fired up my Commodore 64.

    • PeterRabbitts

    Anybody know where I can get this as a Desktop Wallpaper?

    • kosta

      possibly the HQ DAR later on

    • SPCToast

      I'm no IT expert, but you could right-click and save the image, and then… set as wallpaper.

      • MIKEG01sf

        Theres a dope website called TheChive.com. Open the memory lane post. Scroll down to #11. Right click. Copy. Paste. I remember my first computer

        • cookit

          That would of been great if I had a screen the size of a dvd case. Its 500×300 gentlemen

          • http://www.facebook.com/Vrolok013 Christopher Mata Campbell

            It was already posted in one of the Chive's HQ wallpapers posts. Don't be shy, there is a search bar at the top of the screen. Just type in wallpaper and check the later posts.

          • Smashing

            Wallpapers can expand on a computer… Just click fullscreen.

          • some-dude

            :sadbanana: 😦

    • vwtifuljoe

      the big question is not why is she playing Contra on a computer, but why is she playing Contra with a keyboard? (also, why does it look like she is typing to play Contra? photoshop iguess)

      Only one person dares to give me raspberry…..Lone Star…

  • Gallus

    If #16 is Lincoln Logs, they have been around a lot longer than the '80's.

    • Gallus

      Just found this on Wikipedia: "Lincoln Logs were invented in 1916, by John Lloyd Wright, son of Frank Lloyd Wright." They were marketed in 1918.

      • Keyser Soze

        but played with in the 80's. Argument invalid.

  • Bob

    #19 1984 is not Eighties……fail

    • Bob

      lol, #18 1994

      • TheJesus

        where does it say 80's? half the stuff they post in this is from the 90's and early 2000's.

        • MylesofStyles

          This post is titled "Eighties childhood nostalgia : The Chive" according to the tab of this page's window. Just saying.

          • monoxxide

            better look at it again.. the title of this post that is

            • MylesofStyles

              TheJesus commented "where does it say 80's?…" I pointed out that the description in the browser header clearly reads, "Eighties childhood nostalgia : The Chive". Read and comprehend before you comment.

    • Chaosthirteen

      You know what aggrivates me? She should have floated a little bit before falling damnit.
