It's incredible how much changes over time. For those of us who grew up in the nineties and early 2000s, it's common for us to get nostalgic for what seemed to be a simpler time back then. But there is always hope that our favorite things will make a comeback.

Here's a list of what really needs to make a comeback. A lot has changed in the past decade or so, and it's time that we bring back a few older values.

U/FlintTheDad asked:

What needs to make a comeback?

One of the biggest things that has changed over the past decade or so has been entertainment, and how we consume it.​

​Video games have changed so much.

"Making a single purchase and getting all of a game's content."


"Similarly, develop your next game instead of continually porting your game to yet another next gen console."


​These were the BEST.

"Saturday Morning Cartoons"

"Just plop on my couch, have some Cap'n Crunch and watch cartoons all morning."


"Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network still have good cartoons to watch."

"They may not be Saturday morning but they're certainly all day."


Now we have twelve different series of 90 Day Fiancé.

"Good programming on The History Channel, TLC, Discovery, MTV, etc."

"Those channels used to be so good but they're full of bad reality TV shows now."


Classic Disney is the best Disney.

"Classic 2D Disney films. No not CGI films meant to look 2D, actual hand drawn 2D films."

"Sleeping Beauty took six years and six million dollars to make, that entire film is one beautiful painting."


​Societal norms have certainly changed a ton in the past twenty years or so.

We all need more of this.​

"I hate that the majority of people went from somewhat private lives, to giving it all up via social media in seemingly 5 years. As with most things, it wasn't a well known concern until it was already a huge problem."


​They wait that long?!

"This might sounds weird but as someone working in childcare. Early potty training."

"The amount of parents who are waiting until their child is 3-4 to potty train is huge now. When I worked in daycare we were lucky if a child was 3+ and in pull ups."

"When I talk to other daycare workers and nannies they always say the age used to be around 2. Now it seems like everyone is 'waiting until they're ready' then panicking when that moment never comes."


​College is way too expensive now.

"An affordable college and graduate school education. I.e Medical school tuition used to be $3000 a year in the 1960s according to some of the older docs. Now it's $72,000 a year at some schools. Even with inflation in mind, $3000 in the 60s is about $25,000 a year in 2021."


"This is one of those things where America looks insane. In the UK, the maximum any university can charge is about £9000 a year, and many charge much less."


Honestly, if people started bringing back the things they were nostalgic for, the world would be a much better place.

Gen Z is bringing back so much.​

"Roller skating at skating rinks."

"And perms. Low key 80s kid here lol."


"Perms are back. See all those Gen Z dudes with the curly-on-top and buzzed on the sides haircut, aka the broccoli haircut. You might reconsider your position on that issue after looking though."


​Movies used to be so good.

"Making movies/shows/anything like that because they'd be good stories more than just moneymakers."


"On that topic, milking seasons out of a popular series long after it should have been over is just...disappointing."

"Last season of Scrubs, I am looking at you."


​Nothing like a good handwritten letter.

"Handwritten letters."


"People at my work have seen my cursive and expressed a desire to possess a handwritten letter from me. My handwriting is a mess when I'm just jotting something down, but if they want letters, I'll go get my sealing wax and a card out of my box for that extra fancy feeling."

"And then the card will just read 'Butts.'"


I'm about to show how much of a nerd I am, but you know what really needs to make a comeback? Good musical theatre that's not based on movies. Just like movies and TV shows, I'm craving some good ol' fashioned original content. Maybe I'm just nostalgic for older theatre, but dang, I miss it.

Luckily, older trends almost always circle back around at some point. There's always hope for things to get better, and bring us back to simpler times

With millennials now reaching their thirties and forties, many are looking back on the childhood they had compared to the ones they're witnessing now.

With technology advances and a constant need to impress, these two worlds of childhood are undeniably different.

Now that pandemic protocols have been lifted for the most part, inexperienced travelers should take advantage of the time to visit places they've always wanted to see or dreamed of seeing in lockdown.

Unfortunately, a myriad of excuses can delay one's inclination to wanderlust–including a lack of finances and a fear of the unknown.

But thankfully, Reddit is here to prove it can be a great resource for travel information that isn't generally known to the public.

History is made on a daily basis.

Indeed, there is little more exciting than having witnessed the accomplishments of people like Barack Obama, Stacey Abrams, and Greta Thunberg knowing that they have firmly reserved a space for themselves in history books.

Of course, most of the people who paved the way to make the world what it is today have long since passed away.

Not all of them, though!

It may surprise you to learn that there are people who made an indelible impression on history who are still much alive today.

Some of whom even continue to make a difference to this very day

We all indulge in fast food from time to time.

Even if we know what we're eating isn't exactly healthy, sometimes the salty, fatty mass-produced food is the only thing we want.

Resulting in our making weekly, if not daily, visits to a nearby chain.

Then, of course, there are the chains that we make every effort to avoid.

We've likely tried places at least once simply because everyone is always talking about them.

But after having one bite, we have trouble seeing exactly what all the fuss was about and vow to never return.

Even if it might be the only option at a rest stop or even the only available food for miles, we instead opt to wait and be hungry.
