18 Things You Once Said That Would Make No Sense To Today's Kids

They don't even put toys in cereal boxes anymore!

1. "No, you can't use my phone 'cause you'll waste my 'minutes'."

Yup, in the pre-texting days of cellphones, minute plans were pricey and of course going over your minutes plans would get you in deep trouble with your parents.

3. "I'm totally getting 12 CDs for a penny."

It was a tough choice selecting which albums you really wanted to get and then eventually not pay for. For the record Columbia House is still around, but only sells DVDs, while BMG closed down in 2009.

6. "Oh my god, this black light test is making me anxious."


Let's be honest, this was the most disgusting and addictive part of Room Raiders. Lesson we all learned: Guys sleep in jizzed sheets.

9. "Lets make it a Blockbuster night!"


Sadly Blockbuster officially went out of business in 2013. The fun of looking through racks of VHS tapes and DVDs for something to rent is nothing but a distant memory.

10. "Star 69 them!"


Before caller ID was widespread this was pretty much the only way you could catch a crank caller (if they even picked up) or call back a missed call from an unknown number.

11. "More cowbell!"


It's easy to forget just how big this SNL catchphrase from 2000 was -- but if you were around back then, you probably heard someone say it or, maybe, you're guilty of saying it yourself. And just in case you didn't know, it even has its own Wiki page.

13. "I don't have anymore hours left on our AOL account."


Oh to look back on the early days of dial-up, when AOL sold its subscription packages by monthly HOURLY plans. The only way to get unlimited dial-up was to pay the big bucks.

18. "I did not have sexual relations with that woman."

You probably said this while imitating Bill Clinton's voice. How far removed are we from this today? Well someone turning 15 years old this year was born two years after Clinton uttered these infamous words. =(
