So recenty I been having a blast for what was like to surf the internet 10 years ago when things were not so centralized.
There was always something new and different right after the next corner and every new place had new people.
I haven't felt that feeling of novelty when you stumbled upon a new resource, flash game, webcomic and so on in a long time, it was always different.

The internet is no longer the wild frontier it used to be and all the pioneers have disappeared.

Years ago common forums were very active and lots of people had personal pages
Today not even google can take you somewhere new.

I use Wikipedia as a search engine.
. Think of what you want to find.
… If you can't think of anything you can always have a "wiki-walk" until something piques your interest.
. Find a topic related to it on Wikipedia.
. Scroll to the bottom sections called external links, references or citations.
… Scan linked pages for anything interesting.
… A lot of the pages you find with this method will have even more links at the bottom of the page.

What are some lessons that you remember learning during your childhood?

Did you learn them the "easy" way - sitting on your grandpa's knee? Or the "hard" way - that touching that hot stove when mom says not to is not such a good idea!

This reminds me of a time my buddy and I were hiking up a really steep mountain in a dense jungle and we decided against getting a guide and just heading up trailblazing. About maybe halfway up it became a practically vertical climb and eventhough we couldve prolly climbed it, there would be no way back down without falling. We decided to call it quits and turn back. Turns out we took the wrong path and other people have died on the unsanctioned trails that we were on lol

What are some VHS tapes that you remember watching when you were younger. Could be home videos, movies, tv shows, cartoons, anime, shit you found in a dumpster, etc.

Only my grandparents had a VHS player when I was growing up. I remember really looking forward to staying over with them, because it meant watching videos or telly until bedtime. My favourite was probably this one, but I also remember liking the Monsieur Hulot movies and steam railroad documentaries. Not really kids media, but it definitely made a lasting impression on me.

My grandpa died a day after his retirement started when i was like 14, and my grandma a couple years later after a long illness. I helped clear their space out, and held on to the casettes for a while, but i think theyre gone now.

I've been going through and digitizing my old home movies here. I've got six of them done so far.
So far it's been stuff from '91 - '96. But I have a good bit more in between those years as well to do. Then the last home video that ever was filmed was one from 2000 when I was 10. I'm certainly upset about one tape so far I've come across that has a rattling inside of it. But the tape reel doesn't seem to be damaged. It's a tape of me on Halloween in '94. I've been looking into transferring the film reel into another video cassette tape. Does anyone here have any experience with that or any tips for me? I'd personally like to find a specialist to help me. I feel as if I'd be too clumsy and mess things up to the point where I'll lose the footage.

Yes, I started watching wrestling in '94 and stopped around '06 but been watching on and off still yet. I was big into Monday Night Nitro as well and flipped between the channels during the Monday Night Wars. I watched Money In The Bank tonight, it's so disappointing and sad to watch the way things are now compared to how they were in the late '90s during the Attitude Era and early to mid '00s with the Ruthless Aggression Era. Do you keep up with wrestling any today and/or know about the upcoming promotion AEW? If so, what's your thoughts?

Let's talk about mothers. I don't have a good relationship with mine. Here's a joke, in comic form, that my mother has told me she tells to other people, when talking about me. I am Son B.

No.617

We've never had a good relationship. We are just very different people. And I'm just not the sort of person who has good relationships. For example, I never used to tell he stuff like "I love you," or hug, or anything else, because I'm just the sort of person who doesn't like doing that sort of thing, and never have been, ever since I was 5-ish. I am also very stubborn, and have very different views from my mother. I had a very bad temper, growing up, which would get me in trouble in school and at home.
Overall, it's just a recipe for a bad son.

No.664

She was the parent that stuck around. She's a disgusting joke of a human being but she was there, and it really makes me sick that such is enough to make her a thousand times the parent that my "father" was.

My mother loves me, but she's sick in the head and she's done some monstrous things to me, and to my brother.

Do any of you have that one piece of media from your childhood, or otherwise that seems to have flown under the radar?

Sometimes I think back on all the media I've seen in my life, and often ones that never saw widespread appeal come to mind. With nostalgia for games like Pokémon, it's nice because we can all collectively reminisce on something that we enjoyed, but for some other things, there are very few who experienced them.

This tends to leave me with an immense sense of sadness. Something that holds such fond memories for me has not been seen by others, and in the worst case, may slowly fade from public consciousness, lost to time.

Imageboards are inherently very ephemeral, but maybe we could get a thread going for things we have nostalgia for, but others usually do not. Maybe we can prolong the death of our favourite things just a bit longer.

Does anyone get really nostalgic over certain smells? There's plenty of various smells that do this to me. But first I'll mention freshly opened packs of Pokemon, Digimon, and Yugioh cards.

A couple of times in the years since, I've come across the scent of my exgf
There's an immediate and momentary feeling of happiness as my brain reacts, but I know she's not near and that I could do nothing if she was
I glance around and try following the smell, chase that feeling, but it's already gone
