I don't know if this counts as nostalgia but one time in grade school a boy went up to he quietest girl in the class and snapped her crayons in half and then the girl punched him in the throat. Good times.

Later on in high-school that same guy got expelled for jacking off in the back of the geography class so I guess karma finally caught up with him.

This other time in 3rd grade two of my friends asked me to marry them by the monkey bars so I was honored and held a ceremony for them. My teacher found out and called my parents and told them my behavior wasn't age appropriate and I wasn't being a role model and then two days ago the girl came to me and asked me if I could get them divorced because she felt it wasn't the same anymore and when I told the guy if he was okay with that he just replied with what the f*ck with a totally serious face and asked if I was gonna charge him with taxes.

edit: grammar

Really difficult game but its funny nature and catchy soundtrack kept me playing. It's one of the earliest games I remember playing, and it brings back many memories. I even remembering taking it to school in P2 to play it on the computers.

Anything 90s Nickelodeon.

I have the majority of it on DVD and watch it all quite often:

Salute Your Shorts - seasons 1 and 2
Pete and Pete - seasons 1 and 2
Are You Afraid of the Dark - a whole bunch
Hey Dude - seasons 1 - 3
Clarissa Explains It All - season 1
Rocko's Modern Life - seasons 1 -4
also a TON of Doug and Rugrats on DVR.

Pretty much any good songs on MTV as well, mostly between 92 and 98. Great stuff.

When I was younger my dad had XM satellite radio (a few years before they merged with Sirius, not that that really matters), we'd listen to it in the car, and car rides with him often lasted more than thirty minutes because he lived way out away from everything interesting, so it was a good investment. Usually we listened to a station called XM kids, and they played a line-up of maybe thirty or forty regular songs, and in the morning they'd play by request as long as they could get a child-safe version of the song. Anyway, he got rid of his radio when his car had engine failure and couldn't be fixed, I think it was something about XM radio being more expensive than it's worth anymore. I still occasionally get an old song from the station stuck in my head, but the hosts and radio personalities were what I really remember being top-notch (at least top-notch for a kids channel).

Another thing from around the same time is Cypress Gardens. It was a theme park and botanical garden about an hour south of where my dad lived. The theme park wasn't the best, but they had a big water-ski show that was really good, the park was owned by a water skiier named George Blair who's notable for being very old and having an obsession with the color yellow. Sadly the park was sold in 2009 to be made into a legoland. I'm not sure how much it's changed because I haven't been since 2007, but I'd be disappointed if they got rid of the water ski show. There was also a really nice section of the park that was a giant garden and walking path, I'd be disappointed if they changed that too. From a quick look on google images it looks like they just lego-ized everything, which is good of them. smile.gif

I remember one of my family's first computers being from gateway and having Windows 98 installed.

^^^ My old Windows 98 was a Time Computers machine. It lasted until 2008 (it was long dead by then) when it was replaced by a Packard Bell Imedia 2316 with Windows Vista Home Premium SP1, which finally died itself in October 2012. That in itself is nostalgic.

This is for British and Irish members. Anyone remember this? It used to play before movie previews in the cinema until at least 2008 (I think) here in the UK. One hell of a way to grab someone's attention. One of my favorite logos of all time.

That used to scare me as a kid, I remember a longer one or something like this advert where you see the man who looked like he had black eyes holding the stick, my parents used to joke by saying he was a pirate

I remember seeing this for the first time on ITV2. Not really a Star Wars fan, but that memory has stayed with me all this time.

My favorite Disney movie of all time - Oliver & Company (1988).

"Inspired by Charles Dickens' 'Oliver Twist'. A homeless kitten named Oliver, roams the streets of 1980s New York City, where he is taken in by a gang of homeless mutts who survive by stealing from others. During one of these criminal acts, Oliver meets a wealthy young girl named Jenny Foxworth. This meeting will forever change his life."

Anyone remember the iMac G3s? My primary school had rooms full of them before replacing them with 'state of the art' Windows XP computers in 2007, a year before I left.

Anything from the SSP line was f*cking great. The SSP smash up derby ones might have been the best.

I can’t really remember when I first learned to blow. Now, before you decide to jump the gun on me here and start slinging out the low-brow trolling and insinuations, just let me explain first. By “blow” I mean “blow into an NES cartridge”. What were you thinking? “Blow into a Caleco cartridge”? No? Well…yeah, wow. That’s much worse.
