Chances are, you'll probably recognize at least some of these things from your childhood days of staying at your grandparents' house - we certainly did. Definitely brings back those fond memories of opening up the basement closet and finding some of the toys and games your parents used to play with. A lot of this stuff you probably even forgot existed, so get ready for a major nostalgia trip!
Everyone loves nostalgia, and this trending dank meme relies heavily on those wistful feelings to drive their joke across. Nerf guns may exist now, but they're not nearly as present as they seemed to be when your old AF editors were in their Nerf-shooting days. Besides the hours of tomfoolery, there's one thing about Nerf guns has always stood out to us: the fact that the darts always seem to disappear. It doesn't matter if you're shootin' them in a big field or a small room with no furniture. The damn things seem to vanish in thin air. We're not sure if it's a conspiracy orchestrated by the Nerf bigwigs or if there's some sort of parallel universe where the Nerf darts are located. We do know, however, that we appreciate r/dankmemes for shedding light on these mysteries. Now we just need a History channel investigation.
C'mon 90's kids, get your fix of some of that sweet, sweet nostalgia. Back when things were simple. If you wanted to rent a movie you had to go to a store. The ketchup was blue, and the charizards were holographic.
If you experienced childhood somewhere around the turn of the century, then quite a few of of these pictures might hit you right in the memory nads. Remember back when you had to drive to a store to rent videos? Wild. If you want more '90s nostalgia, then check these out.
The 90's were something of a teen romance renaissance. From 10 Things I Hate About You to She's All That, movies really captured the wildly awkward and often mean experiences of being a confused teenager. BuzzfeedOz Editor Jenna Guillaume is no stranger to these movie experiences. In this epic and hilarious thread, the author regales us with very 90's emotional rollercoaster, complete with three-way phone calls, and, maybe more importantly, a heroic dog.
For some reason I have this default setting in my brain that considers it to be eternally 2005. So I'm constantly thinking to myself, "Man, the 90's were only like 5-6 years ago." Well, in reality 2005 was 12 years ago and the 90's were 17.
For those of you like me who are permanently stuck in the past, here are some images that will take you on a feels journey through time.
If your dream is to sit A.C. Slater-style at a booth at the Max, you’re in luck because this pop-up diner inspired by the after-school classic, Saved By The Bell, is coming to town.
Saved By The Max brings the fictional diner from Saved By The Bell to life and offers you a chance to eat just like those hilarious Bayside teens. Based in Chicago, Saved By The Max is a pop-up diner that will soon be heading out on the road. In this video, Mr. Belding himself announces the touring pop-up diner is coming, following “one final semester in Chicago. You don’t even have to be hooked on caffeine pills to enjoy it.

The whole thing looks almost too real compared to the TV show, even if it seems unlikely that the fictional Max would have menu items named after their best customers, such as “A.C. Sliders,” “The Tori Fried Chicken,” and the terribly unimaginative “Mr. Belding’s Fries.” Still, pretty sweet that Tori got a menu item, despite the fact that her stint on the show makes no sense.
The Huffington Postvisited their Chicago location a few months ago. Be forewarned, if you’re allergic to dayglo, avert your eyes.
This wonderful piece of late 90's nostalgia has been remixed again and again. And now it's been remixed one more time! In this version of 'All Star' someone made every member of the band play at slightly different tempos. It's like a terrible karaoke failure. Enjoy.
Get ready for another hit of that sweet, sweet nostalgia because Nickelodeon is not done with you yet. Craig Bartlett, creator of Hey Arnold! has just confirmed the greenlighting of a two part Hey Arnold! movie. According to the image and description, it already has a title:
It's official! The two-part, two-hour Jungle Movie is greenlit for production! So glad to be back with my friends at Nickelodeon.
The movie will pick up from the end of the original series after Arnold found a map potentially leading to his long lost parents.
Nickelodeon is bringing Legends of the Hidden Temple back! But not in the way you might expect. Instead of a tiny American Gladiators game show, it will be a movie. According the Variety, it will still include all your favorite elements from the show:
In “Hidden Temple,” three siblings must conquer a series of obstacles to remain alive, mirroring the theme of the original game show. The TV movie, slated to appear in the fourth quarter of 2016, will nod to other elements from the original show, including Olmec, a talking head who knows the secrets behind the temple; the Steps of Knowledge, the entrance to the temple and launching pad for the mission; and cameos from a green monkey, red jaguar and silver snakes, among others.
Hopefully they will still have to assemble the Silver Monkey to make it out alive. Sure, it looks easy, but the suspense is real.
According to the description, it's just an empty sample can for a new line of Ecto Cooler drinks in support of the new 'Ghostbusters' movie. The seller got many questions (and apparently some abusive emails) as to how he or she came to be in possession of this rare item. They provided this statement in the product description:
For the threatening emailer (who needs to learn how to spell) and any others interested, this was sent to a friend who used to work for a marketing company. My friend hasn't worked there in a long time and received this via UPS or FedEx the other day. It was in a plain box with a box containing these inside. No paperwork. It's not stolen, nor is it marked "Sample" or "Not For Resale" that's why eBay has allowed this item for sale (and yes, I called them to verify at 14:04 EST 2/18/2016).
The first scene takes place at a spelling bee right after the kids find out the true identity of "Mrs. Doubtfire" (SPOILER: It's their Dad). The second scene is a brutal argument after he gives up the game of being Mrs. Doubtfire to his ex-wife.
The deleted make the movie a lot darker. With those added in, it might not have been all fun and vacuuming with the occasional argument.
