I’m feeling a bit nostalgic right now. While I am not against change, there are some things that I really miss. (I might have a touch of rose colored glasses, though I don’t think these things are innately better just because they were from my childhood.) If you’re younger, you might recognize some of these things. If you are Gen X or older, you’ll remember them from the perspective of an adult. But for Millennials, here are 55 good, bad, and hilarious elements of nostalgia to look back on.

  1. Ask Jeeves
  2. Zynga
  3. Dogpile search engine
  4. Crystal Pepsi
  5. Using a pencil to fix a VHS
  6. Blockbuster nights!

  8. Chuck Norris jokes. ALL. THE. TIME. And they weren’t even that funny!
  9. Clippy, the Microsoft Office assistant

I hope this article gave you a good chuckle and brought back memories for all you Millennials out there. Yeah. Your Neopets are all starving. Jeeves is retired. And there is only one Blockbuster left in existence! Can you believe it has been 30 years since the 90s and Nirvana is now considered classic rock? It’s so strange.
