Yup, that’s when old people watch Nickelodeon.

It’s kind of sad when you think about how your childhood probably didn’t revolve around the internet, or at least not to the same degree.

I guess that makes it a classic. Who would’ve thunk it?

Chew on that for a minute.

That cannot be right.

Another little boy living under the stairs could’ve had a whole other set of adventures in a magical universe in that time!

But most of them have never heard of or seen an original iPod [screaming emoji].

I mean, yeah, tablets are fancier, but nothing beats the simplicity of that square, grey box.

You know, the stations we used to refer to as the “oldie” station and that played rock n’ roll from the 50s?

#5. The Phantom Menace was released in 1999, which means we’re just about as far from it as it was from the original Star Wars, released in 1977.

On the bright side, we can still remember a Star Wars universe in which The Phantom Menace didn’t exist.

#4. They could make a High School Musical 4 and have it take place at their 10 year reunion.

Idk why, but this one killed me.

Our childhoods have been reduced to homecoming week themes.

#2. If someone wants to make a “vintage” movie, like The Wedding Singer was for us, it would be set in 2005.

That’s 13 years ago, friends.

What would it be like to have never lived in a world without Will Ferrell equating Christmas?

No shame, people. Getting older is actually the best.
