Sometimes our memories are so closely linked to our senses that when we think of them we experience all those sights, smells, sounds, and tastes as if we've been transported back in time. Here are a bunch of things that may as well be a time machine, because you're going to experience those feels all over again.

The struggle of trying to press down all the buttons at once

We knew it would never work, but that didn't stop us from trying. Multiple times.

The sound of flipping through a giant binder of cds

The only struggle harder than turning the page was deciding which CD you wanted to listen to.

The frustration of trying to roll one of these maps back up

Every pull would just unroll it more, then right as you were about to give up it would rocket back up, basically yanking you up with it.

The hint of wood flavor when you ate those ice cream cups

We didn't even care, if anything it made it taste even better.

The weird rubbery feeling of those Livestrong bracelets

We'd basically cram so many of them onto our wrists that we could barely bend our arms. But they raised money for charity, so I guess it was worth it.

The taste of a Viennetta cake

You couldn't help but feel classy eating this, which isn't what you'd expect from an ice cream cake.

The crippling anxiety you felt when you were sure you were about to lose your damn finger

I'm getting stressed out just thinking about it.

Obviously huffing marker fumes is a bad idea, but that didn't stop us from breathing in deep whenever we needed to use one of these for a school project.

Pretending to know what we were doing when we played Minesweeper

We get what those numbers mean now, but don't even act like you didn't just click randomly and hope for the best when we played it as kids.

The feeling of peeling glue off your hand

We didn't need smartphones to distract us, just white glue. It was one of the most satisfying feelings in the world.

Feeling like the world's greatest artist when you added color to your MS Paint squiggles

Move over, Picasso, there's a new artist in town.

Using your hands to rub patterns onto the fabric of a couch

It made having those ugly old couches totally worth it. We were so easily entertained. But that's not the only weird thing we did to pass the time...
