It's hard to believe, but Saved By The Bell is turning 30 in August this year.

1989 brought us actors Mario Lopez, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Elizabeth Berkley, Lark Voorhies, Tiffani Thiessen, Dustin Diamond, and more as our favorite group of high schoolers experiencing their four most formative years of their lives together, with us, the audience, along for the ride.


With so many iconic moments, where do you even start with celebrating 30 years?

Mario Lopez, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Elizabeth Berkley and Tiffani Thiessen were recently pictured together on Saturday night having a quick little reunion dinner, with all of their significant others along for the ride.

USA Today reported they got together at Petit Trois in Sherman Oaks, CA.

"Friends forever" is a line from the fictional in-show band, "Zack Attack."

Mario Lopez also posted a video of the group:


Thirty years.

And fans are so happy/feel so old.





Some people noticed a significant missing piece or two:





But none of the posts of the crew that were there acknowledged the absences of Voorhies or Diamond.






Saved By The Bell ran for a solid 4 seasons, from 1989-1993, with two spin-offs and two films to follow.

Gosh, the nostalgia in here today is thick.

Manipulation is designed to be stealthy. We hardly recognize it when it's happening to us because our abuser has forced it to appear under wraps.

But when we recognize it for what it really is, we really feel like we've been smacked across the face. There is no other descriptor for it. Usually we've trusted and loved those that manipulated us.

Just as new mothers encounter the sudden, influential developments of powerful hormone changes, protective instincts, and milk production, so new fathers undergo some key changes of their own.

Their socks become exclusively white, climbing higher up the calf than ever before. All their shorts sprout cargo pockets and clunky belt loop cell phone holders. They start to really lean in to their old records.

Cleaning up is hard enough when it's just clearing a month of dust bunnies. Can you imagine cleaning the debris left by murder, suicide and violence? I have a really great friend who used to do crime scene clean-up for a living. The pay is incredible; it starts at $55 an hour. But there is a much higher cost in mental well being. Death affects you in ways you don't always feel immediately. My friend has stories of nightmares, depression and pain after leaving scenes of horror. Why make all that money just to spend it on therapy? It takes a certain type of person.

***TRIGGER WARNING. CONTENTS ARE SENSITIVE ***

Redditor u/MemegodDave wanted to hear from the people who have the stomach to come in after crime and tragedy

to try to bring back some form of normalcy to the location by asking... People who make their living out of cleaning murder scenes, accidents and the like, what is the worst thing you have experienced in your career?

We all know the telltale signs that something is making us uncomfortable. Suddenly, we begin shaking, either in our hands or knees or toes. Then, usually, sweat starts pouring out of every part of our body, making it look like we just ran through a rainstorm underneath a waterfall. Finally, we lose our regular speech functions. Everything goes out of sync and our words don't match up to what's in our minds.

What's interesting is that what usually brings about these fits of uncomfortableness differs from person to person, as evidenced by the stories below.
