- Page 1

By far one of the most vivid childhood memories that just about everybody holds onto is coloring with crayons. It's one of those things that apparently becomes inappropriate the second you hit a certain age, but let's get real; who doesn't love crayons?


Did you know that the classic Crayola box that everybody grew up with actually dates back to the early 1900s, when the company Binney & Smith decided to start manufacturing and selling colored crayons? Edwin Binney's wife Alice suggested marketing them under the name "Crayola," which is a combination of the French word craie (chalk), and ola for "oily."


The brand won numerous awards over the next several decades and became what we know it as today. There isn't a kindergarten class in the known universe that doesn't use these bad boys for pretty much the best activities of all time.

8 Lies Our Parents Told Us That We Believed For An Embarrassingly Long Time

Our parents, our grandparents, and sometimes even our teachers would have to tell us things to make us do what was best for us. But sometimes, they seemed to have told us a bunch of lies that were just nothing more than downright false. Sure, it's understandable when they need to make sure we eat our veggies or go to bed early enough so we aren't cranky the next day, but honestly, some of the things our parents said were just completely false for no reason. I don't know why they have to lie to us. I mean, I guess


7 Weird Rules We Were Forced To Follow At School That We're Still Cranky About To This Day

Elementary school, middle school (or junior high depending on where in the country you are), and high school are probably the scariest years of your life. Yes, there is all this propaganda that claims that they are "the best years of your life," but if that's true, then oh boy... There were so many rules and regulations, all of which were claiming to be in place for our own good, but a lot of the time it felt as though they were just completely ridiculous. Do you ever wonder if it was just a crazy power trip? Were they just


5 Fashion Items That Have Been Successfully Resurrected, And 5 We'd Rather Stay Dead

Fashion is one of those things that seems to have a cycle that everything follows, so the same things become popular every few years. It has been happening since the dawn of fashion really, but it's just a lot weirder when it's the stuff you grew up wearing. When you see a young kid rock the same style of outfit you wore when you were their age you suddenly feel like you've traveled through time. You'd expect for fashion to evolve over the years, but it honestly doesn't. It just spins in circles, occasionally scooping up some new additions or


Stirrup Pants Are Back In Style And We Don't Know How To Feel About It

We've all been there, the mall with our moms impatiently waiting to go to the toy section. She wants us to buy some new pants for school because we tore three holes in them last week. She says you have to try things on because you are growing too fast and she isn't sure what size you are, but honestly, there is nothing you want to do less than that. You rush through everything quickly, finding the size you need and then it isn't until years later when you look at the pictures of your childhood that you realize what
