    #19 The family tree of the iphone.

    • rahreag

      It's amazing how they've managed to wedge all of that shit into one iPhone these days

  • Bill

    #10 Watch out it gonna eat you!

    • Kristen

      That was fucking stupid, Bill.

  • Elnene333

    If the Oregon Trail did not exist in your childhood, you didn't have one.

    • Dan

      So what the hell was I doing for all those years?

      • drew

        Not losing family members to Dysentery.

  • Holy Shit WTF

    #22 I see nipple.

    • Brian

      What an eye, what an eye

  • Lisa

    Gad. That was a lifetime ago. My first computer came in a Radio Shack kit that my Dad and I put together. I got to hold the solder. ๐Ÿ™‚ Good times.

    #20 was entirely too much fun back in the day.

    • Impressive

      That was the most fun you could have with your clothes on.

      • Lisa

        I was 6 at the time so me being naked with someone would've ended up with that someone being shot. My Dad has other skills besides building computers. And now, so do I. Taxidermy teaches us all sorts of neat ways to hide a body. ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ™‚

        • Un-Impressive

          I wasn't talking about you having your clothes off @ 6yrs old, I was in my late teens

          • Lisa

            No worries. There's no way you could've known how old I am. ๐Ÿ˜‰ All's well.

            Except in Aurora. It may not be "appropriate" to mention it here, but prayers sent for the folks who were shot at the Dark Knight premier. I don't understand why people do this kind of thing.

    • TheJesus

      love it! There's still one of those somewhere in my parents' attic.

    • djjacobb

      still fun to play… i have a green one floating around the house somewhere and everytime I come across it I get aucked into playing it…

    • Bob Fungus

      That game was boss

      They are trying to eat each other's souls.

    0,0001% of g33k in population in 1980.

    • Dan

      0,0001% isn't a real number. 0.0001% is

    #15 Happy Birthday Paulie, Rocky IV

  • Anjin-San


    I was so happy when Santa brought that to me..

    • Rob

      Did anybody else stick a pencil into one of the holes in the cassette, then twirl it around to rewind it instead of using up the batteries in the Walkman?

  • TheNarb

    I wonder if we'll look back on our tech in 30 years and feel the same way. This stuff looks archaic and it was probably cutting edge tech back then.

    #13 the only real way to play Oregon trail

    • TheJesus

      Great, now I've got dysentery.

    • sadman

      This was the version that could only render 3 colors on the screen at a time; green, blue, and brown (black is not a color). I just need 440 bullets, extra oxen and wagon wheels. We don't need clothes; what will happen?

    #20 Still have mine and it works quite well. ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Bender

    #25 So this is where dubstep was all started?

  • spliggs

    Little could they have imagined that 30 years later, 95% of all this stuff would be used for creating, recording, distributing and consuming porn.

    • Anomanom

      So true…


    look at the chive so cunning they post a blatant picture that mirrors a previous post then start to act all covert with a twist of signification as though there doing something clever that only one could figural out. ๐Ÿ˜

    • James

      Bug off douche

    • Jay

      figural? Jesus, really?

  • SuperiorTo8

    I want to go back in time with my iPhone so I can laugh at these people

    • Notme

      ..and in 20 years someone will come back in time and laugh at your iPhone

    • pufffdragon

      I laugh at people now, with iphones

    • Lunch_Box

      Your iPhone would be a paperweight in the 80's, only the self contained apps would work, maybe.

    • greyphilosophy

      Cause you'd have no service, no charger, and can't remember a phone number to save your life

  • jonstettler


    Mini?! xD

      compared to its big brother the 8 inch floppy, yes. And that thing sails through the air rather nicely.

  • James

    #4 that awkward moment when you lock eyes with your sister

    • Notme

      scary ugly gingers

      • http://echogeo.wordpress.com/ echogeo

        Scary ugly ginger twins

    • DB Conor

      Or yourself in drag.

  • Disco Stu

    Thats an very misleading title. It's a bunch of crap from the 80's, not what they thought the future was going to be like.

  • Jazbo

    #4 both murdered their parents shortly after taking this photo

    • Zuke

      They are creepy as hell, aren't they? They literally have almost the exact same faces, just with different hair. Plus, if that one episode of south park is to be trusted, gingers have no souls and are not to be trusted.

    This post makes me want to hook up my old pc and play cross country Canada

    • Hobokenguy

      Is that a game where you die of dysentery and frostbite?

      • Kristen

        No, it's a game where you fuck your brother in the ass, watch hockey, and see how many time you can say, "eh."
