The Nostalgia Thread

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

i'm sorry but Naruto is not really qualified to be nostalgic. It's great and all, but it is not old enough to be nostalgic yet. We may as well be nostalgic for LOLcats or myspace.

 

 

Even if you weren't around in the (13)60's (solar hijri... foolz), this nasheed can't help but strike something within you:

^ I love floppy disks. Although the ones I have the most memories with are the 3 and a half or 3 and a quarter inch variety.

 

Darth Vader made fun of me for wanting to get a floppy drive for the computer I want to buy. I bet he feels really bad about that now.

I remember having my eye on some blue steel coloured high tops for ages, but i ended up getting patent yellow Doc martens with red laces :P about the same time there was an Adidas explosion in the UK and these became ubiquitous:

Wait it's called fusen? So it's Japanese, then?

 

We call it "adams khersi" (bear gum). We are kind of dumb though. I mean we call coca cola "black soda" and Fanta "yellow soda" (yes, yellow, not orange... don't ask me why).

Although, not as old as the ones above but this is my first phone at age 13. It was the first Nokia flip phone. I still have it and despite the hundreds of scratches on it, crack on it's mini front screen and the numerous times that I dropped it throughout the years, it still functions well up until now, lol.

Let's see if my iphone will survive that long the same way 10 years from now. :lol:

 

So are you suggesting that we may be too old bc your phone is not as old as the ones above :p ?

 

Btw, I've had my iphone for 3 years and it was in perfect condition, I was proud of myself because almost anyone else I know had a cracked screen or scratches or something..... and the day came..... yesterday it fell and cracked my screen :'( I hate getting new phones or new anything when mine still works, I'm glad the phone had mercy on me and only cracked the bottom left corner so I can still read everything but it's sad anyway :( I'm gonna preserve until its last breath and keep it for many years to come.

Awesome topic, baradar! Before broadband, there was a sound when we used the dial-up connection to the Internet. :)

I never could afford Docs. When my mohawked, pink haired, leather jacketed friends were sporting Docs, I wore real, genuine army boots.

Anyone old enough to remember getting free trial of AOL in the junk mail at least monthly? And also along with just about any software you bought.

My first computer had a 30 MB hard drive, and people didn't even talk about RAM back then. It was super high tech, because it also had a "math co-processor". It ran DOS and Windows 3.1. Most of my programs were DOS based. If you wanted to run Windows, you had to start it up.

Why torture the ants? Did they do anything to you?

Also, bro: I am sure all of us played outside, too. It's just that grass and dirty aren't nostalgic because... uh... grass and dirt are all around us.

More memories for you dirty majoos:

These plastic "gol koochik" balls were very cruddy. So to make them last longer we would cut open one of them and put it into the other. Little kids = engineers

I used to collect up a batch of frog eggs in the spring, find a shady spot in my backyard to set up a tank, and grow them to tadpoles, then to frogs.

We also brought home rock lizards, turtles, salamanders, praying mantises, fireflies (of course!), the occasional cat, and one friendly dog which my parents wouldn't let us keep. Except for the praying mantises, which we once kept all summer, and the annual frogs, which we kept until they hopped away, we always kept them for a day or two then released them.

So far my own kids have only brought home flowers, and my husband once found a colorful turtle :wub: which we ooohed and aahed over, then released.

Kids don't really go outside much anymore. My 13 year old says he was born in the wrong decade. He would have loved any time between the 40s and the 80s.

Bradar, because i hanged up mostly with boys (since they were my age) and boys used to just torture anything that moves from blowing up bugs \9and it is a scene to remember, you should try it) to cutting tails of cats ...

One of them used to collect a good number of flies in a glass bottle then add some sticky fruits , sealed the bottle then send it up to sky until the bottle is only a dot (it was one of the challenges played, how good is your throw)

then when the bottle comes down to earth, we would laugh at the art work of flies sticking on fruit pie...

i guess you won't find it funny now anyways, but we were kids and anything cracked us up with laughter.

Not at all.

My nostalgia is all my friends, scattered to the winds. And this:

I still keep that student card in my purse.
