This One Teen's Tweet About Burning CDs Will Honestly Ruin Your Day

All of us who would consider ourselves to be 80s and 90s kids aren't really that old, right? We are still in the prime of our lives, and a lot of us still feel like we're just getting started on our path to being a "real grown-up." Maybe it's not the greatest that a lot of us still feel young, but times have changed since our parents were in their 30s. We've learned how to chill out and take our time in our lives. There's no rush, so let's all just relax and try to stay young longer.Here's the

The Hair-Raising History Of How Trolls Became One Of The Longest-Lasting Toy Trends

I think we can all agree that looking back on our childhoods makes us reevaluate some of our obsessions. Did we need all of those Beanie Babies? Probably not. Did we need every POG available? Probably not. Was Tickle Me Elmo really worth the effort our parents put in? I guess not. But those things were just short little trends that passed by in a few short years.

Your Favorite Monster Cereals Actually Have A Bizarre And Controversial Past

Franken Berry, Boo-Berry, and Count Chocula were three of the best cereals to ever come across our grocery store aisles. As children, we would beg our parents to get us some of these marshmallow-filled treats instead of the boring, old, healthier options, and when they actually did it, we were so thrilled. Even though kids loved the cereals, there were actually a couple of different controversies involving the General Mills classics.

15 Things We'd Get On Halloween That Were The Worst Part Of Trick-Or-Treating

Halloween is a privilege that kids are mostly taking for granted. You get to dress up in ridiculous costumes, and when you're young, you get to walk around and get free snacks from everyone in your neighborhood. You can't really go trick-or-treating when you're an adult, but at least now we can buy our own candy supplies. Sure, it's not as satisfying as getting it for free, but at least we get our sugar fix. There is, however, one benefit to having to buy candy yourself instead of running around town asking strangers for it. Instead of being given a

Geoffrey the Giraffe has been the Toys 'R' Us mascot for a long time, but now
