When we saw that #I'mOldEnoughToRememberWhen was trending, we panicked. While we adore being offered reminders of the good old days, nobody enjoys being reminded of the daily passing of time.

Some of the gems we found gave us a good laugh, so we've curated a list of our top 20 favourite nostalgia thirst posts, and if you can't relate to any of them then get OUT of this article immediately.

No young ones allowed. We're off to play Crash Bandicoot on our Playstations and message weird fonts to our friends on MSN. If we get time, we'll send our friends 'luv' on Bebo too.

Digital tech behemoth Apple made all of our Christmas wishlists a few hundred euro more expensive back in 2005 with the release of the iPod Nano. 

Eveyone in school was dying to get their hands on one and choosing the perfect colour was crucial. 

Then the iPod Shuffle made it's debut, and while the concept of never being able to choose a song still baffles us, we were besotted none the less. 

'Today, we are simplifying our iPod lineup with two models of iPod touch now with double the capacity starting at just $199 and we are discontinuing the iPod shuffle and iPod nano,' an Apple spokesperson told The Verge

The news come after the 2014 discontinuation of the classic, original iPod. 

Our teenage, My Chemical Romance/Black Eyed Peas loving hearts bleed.
