Man. Remember before? Remember all the times that weren’t now?

If you’re having trouble recalling what I’m talking about, it was the vast majority of the times you’ve experienced. All the stuff that isn’t, but once was. That you were here for.

Or maybe you weren’t even here for some of it. Maybe you’ve just seen so much of it that you sort of feel like you were around, or you would have liked to have been. Maybe you have yet to experience it because you’re some sort of freaky Benjamin Button-esque reverse time voyager and in a few years you’ll be watching Malcolm in the Middle.

I don’t know your life. What I do know is these hot memes.

10. The bubble chair

This was an era where aesthetics took priority over practicality pretty much every time.

9. Have you had your break today?

Those Gamecube stations were the ultimate tease, though. You either never had time to play them or they weren’t working right.


Something you have to understand about the 90’s is that everything was screaming at you all the time and there was nothing you could do about it.

7. Water, water, everywhere

I toyed with the idea briefly that I might, in fact, be a water bender.

6. Marching orders

Believe it or not, there was once a time when you had to speak to a human being to put in a food order.

5. Feel the squeeze

Everything had to be as bright and saturated as possible. It was the law.

4. The pink stuff

So alluring yet so intimidating.

3. Them cups

Burger King was kidding themselves if they thought anybody remembered these character names.

2. Starter pack

The explicit tags on those CDs were so helpful – it let you know exactly which albums were cool.

1. Serious putty

You wouldn’t steal a comic.

Welp, I’m full. How about you?
