    RIP Turkey Twizzlers.

    1. Making every piece of work you ever did look like a masterpiece with a WordArt header.


    2. Playing this every time the IT teacher would look away and thinking it was the greatest game in the world.

    3. How your teacher would write on an actual blackboard.

    6. Being able to eat these for lunch, before Jamie Oliver ruined your fun.

    11. Spending every evening on MSN Messenger.

    12. And being anything but smooth.


    13. Only using your phone to play snake (because that's pretty much all it could do).

    14. Well, that and copying ringtones from your friends.

    15. Having to write an essay without the help of Wikipedia.

    16. But at least your had this...

    17. Giving presentations on this, long before PowerPoint was a thing.

    18. Spending your lunchtimes battling over Pogs.

    19. Or Crazy Bones.

    20. Or, if you were desperate, Tazos.
