    Quite a few of these are 90s things.

    Having MSN and having the version that let you nudge people continuously ftw.

    Pretty sure I obtained every virus imaginable from Limewire. That feeling when downloading a song that turns about to be a donkey ****ing a girl.

    Downloaded Limewire Pro from Limewire, bet they didn't see that coming. :rofl:

    I remember getting the Pro version that way as well, amazing that had worked.

    This makes me so sad that the kids today will be playing angry birds on tablets rather than having a tamagotchi or playing super metroid and super Mario world. I remember my blue scooter and my heelys and my bratz and furby dolls. And the sweets were awesome, those 10p rainbow sugar dusts were so good. Man I miss being in primary school

    What about my littlest pet shop? All the popular girls (and the ones trying to be popular) would have a ****ing army of those things on their tables, right next to their fancy fluffy pink pens and right across from their prepubescent pride.

    aww i remember the pick n mix, woolworths was amazing
    those scoobies and crazy frog were so annoying tho

    even though i hardly count as a 90s kid (1998 here) i really feel sorry for those kids growing up today, ipads and smartphones and things just suck all of the imagination from life, bring back cardboard boxes and bionicles (not the hero factory-esq 2015 ones, the proper ones)

    EDIT: just realised it says 'noughties' not 90s
    They'll be fine, kids in the 90s had gameboys, video games and other stuff, and that didn't ruin their childhoold.

    Almost everything here is a little off, ceefax was more a kid of the 80/90s thing considering people I went to college with in the early 2000's had no idea what it was, and my dads pc connected to a internet like service which was basically ceefax in the 80s

    Pokemon was played by under 16s, Limewire was unheard of by most people of any age because they had no pc experience, they just clicked on websites.

    Pick and mix my brother in his mid 30s had it when he was a little kid,

    Everyone had a 3310, my parents had them till about 2008, I had mine around 2000

    What a strange list.

    And when being gay was still stigmatised.

    People in my school thinking that when someone tripping over some stairs it could be considered "gay". :/

    Or when a chair was missing a leg we said "that chair is so gay".

    What a retarded mindset that was.:lol:
    Instead now people who make a innocent comment get called homophobe or some other politically correct put me down lol.

    I did hear a good argument a few years ago, gay people were complaining about kids saying gay to mean bad, and the person on the radio said "well gay used to mean happy, meanings change with time"

    For me I dont care someones sexuality but it seems these days it seems to be people claim to be gay or bi as a badge of honour which is quite annoying, the same people would have a different mindset if they were born 5-10 years before.

    Piczo should have been added to the list also. In 2007 when I was in Year 7 everyone was crazy about their Piczo, until they discovered Bebo that is

    GUL PENCIL CASES!!

    Had completely forgotten them.

    Other 00's stationary phenomena: a rubber with 'yes' and 'no' written on opposite sides which you'd base all your really important life questions on.

    ...ahh, to be young again.
    Pft they stole that from the '90s, we had those at my primary school.

    The '00s were just a continuation of the '90s in many ways. MSN, AIM, all that. Chatrooms, where ASL first became a thing - that goes back even further AFAIK.

    There's a lot of nostalgia though. A lot of things I miss. MSN probably being the biggest of them.

    Lol, Limewire - where every film was porn and every music track was porn. The internet has come a long way since then.
    LOL jk.

    Miss going out and hiring DVDs.... my local independent shop outlived Blockbusters.... then Netflix killed it...

    It used to smell of the sweetest popcorn in that place... the excitement when you found the new release and it didn't have the label on it that said it was out on loan! FTW

    When I was really little I used to hire out the original Nintendo and later the Sega Megadrive for the weekend. I used to save up and then ask my Dad to take me down there to get it. Golden Axe.... whadda game!
    YESSSS at Golden Axe. Used to play it on the cousin's old Megadrive. God Almighty.
