10 Places In the Mall You Absolutely Had To Go To When You Were A Kid

Going to the mall when we were kids was both a privilege and a requirement. Your mom always called it a treat to go, but you knew better. That's where you had to go if you wanted to keep up with all the trends and latest fashions. Malls were where everything happened. That's where the cool hangouts were, it's where all the good food was, and obviously it was where you could learn about all the newest and coolest trends. Sure, looking because it's easy to say that you shouldn't worry about being cool, but when you're young and impressionable

10 Things We Grew up Doing That Are No Longer Socially Acceptable

There's something so complicated about getting older, because it's not just our bodies that changes, it's the world around us. So while we get older and start experiencing all these aches and pains (hey mystery back spasm, I'm talking to you), we also have to accept the fact that things that used to seem normal to us are no longer acceptable. Gone are the days of saying things without a second thought, or doing things without technology, because the world is a different place than it used to be. Granted it changes every year, and I'm sure our childhood was

'Heathers' Reboot Pushed Back "Out Of Respect"

The 1988 movie Heathers was basically the original Mean Girls. Winona Ryder, Shannen Doherty, Lisanne Falk, and Kim Walker played a clique of high school girls who were the epitome of terrifying teens. Ryder's character, Veronica, misses her old friends and hates that she's part of the Heathers. Her psychotic boyfriend J.D., played by Christian Slater, goes around killing all the people he doesn't like, which includes the Heathers. Ah, to be young again! The movie is a cult classic, and gave us iconic lines like "What's your damage?" and "f--k me gently with a chainsaw..." But people were

Remember Sloth From "The Goonies?" The Man Behind The Mask Lived A Very Tragic Life

The 80s adventure film The Goonies was one of my favorites while growing up. Steven Spielberg and Richard Donner's cult-classic about a group of outcasts in search for a treasure to save their neighborhood incorporated a lot of things that I did as a kid, like making my own toys and riding my bike around the neighborhood, but it also touched on things that I fantasized about as a kid, including teaming up with my friends and going on an adventure sans adults. The characters were also really lovable and memorable, especially the gentle chocolate and ice cream-loving giant named

12 Things That Only Make Sense If You Grew Up In The '80s

Kids today probably couldn't handle growing up in the '80s. You had to walk everywhere, there were corded phones, we had slow video games, we watched a lot of commercials, and had "basic" toys.Things have really improved since then, but at least we had a young Patrick Swayze. I've been feeling very nostalgic about the '80s. It honestly was a great time to grow up. Here are 12 things that only makes sense if you grew up in the best decade ever! 1. Constantly having to give your opinion on who was better, Madonna or Cyndi Lauper. Madonna seems

10 Awful Truths Kids From The '90s Are Only Just Realizing Now

Growing up in the 90s, we had a lot of lies told to us. For example, "I did not have sexual relations with that woman." Didn't you though, Bill?However, there are some more subtle things from our childhoods that we're just starting to come around to, and some of them have me SHOOK (did I used that right? I can never tell). 1. That "farm" wasn't a real place. When I was young, my caregiver had a litter of bunnies. I wasn't allowed to take one home (because my parents were smarter than that) but I got to choose
