If you were born in the new millennium, there’s a large chance that you’ve missed out on a lot of unique and bizarre experiences that only people living in the 80s and 90s could understand.
Before the invention of the internet, people had to make due with entertaining themselves in various ways, with technology that has since become obsolete, and to enjoy products that by today’s standards might seem completely ridiculous. Nevertheless, it’s fun to look back at some of the things in our past that might have been awesome at the time but now seem kind of strange or unusual. Maybe you’re a person who grew up in the 80s and 90s, perhaps you were born way before then, or maybe you’re a product of the new millennium. Whatever the case may be, you’re bound to enjoy this list!
The following 25 pictures of things that people born after the year 2000 will never understand will have you laughing, maybe crying, and hopefully feeling nostalgic for times in the past!
1) Overhead Projectors: At first glance, you might be curious to know what on earth this crazy old device might be. It may look like a medical device, but in actuality, this was once used to project notes printed on transparencies. Yes, kids, this was before the age of smart boards, tablets, and before every student had their own laptops.
2) Floppy Disks: What on earth are these mysterious squares? Why, these would be floppy disks you silly geese! These bad boys could store up to 1.44 MB in their heyday, just enough space for 5-10 school assignments to save and transport between computers. Before USBs, these were the only way to get your files from one computer to the next. If you had to install a software program, they usually came with about a dozen or so disks! Can you imagine? Those were the days!
