I’m not one of those people who says “kids today don’t know how easy they’ve got it!” because frankly, I don’t think kids today have it easy AT ALL.

I mean, yeah, sure, they never had to suffer the excruciating pain that was dial-up internet, but they also never experienced, like, hope. So I’d say it all comes out in the wash.

On a lighter note, though, it can be a lot of fun to compare and contrast yesterday to today, and the best way to do that is just to get all nostalgic scrolling through Twitter, a thing we DIDN’T EVEN HAVE BACK IN THE DAY! YOU DANG KIDS! YOU GOT IT SO GOOD!

10. The skinny jeans

Surely science can find us a happy medium between these extremes.

9. Babe: Pig in the City

“I feel like this is important, but I have no idea what’s going on.”

8. Happy brunch

What kind of chaotic nightmare world was that place?


7. Fair enough

I don’t know why I always get so excited to look through there, there’s literally nothing of value to me, ever.

6. Fishy go boom

I’m genuinely terrified at the age at which peoples’ lives become public broadcasts now.

5. Yummy gummy

They just wormed their way into all of our hearts, didn’t they?

4. Assault and battery

Dropping your phone SHOULDN’T break it now, just buy a case, dang.

3. Gone with the wind

Prepare to be utterly and thoroughly broken, air currents.

2. Nobody out pizza’s the hut

Man, now I’m hungry. Again.

1. The secret word!

It’s true.

Ah, yesterday. We hardly knew ye.

What are you most nostalgic for right about now?
