There are those of you reading this that don't know the fear of downloading a song on the Internet, and for you, this list of the funniest how-to guides from the 1990s will be especially hilarious, almost like a circus sideshow. 

"Come one, come all! See a man make a phone call from his car! Behold, the woman who can summon a pair of shoes 'online.' Marvel at a piece of mail delivered from New York to LA in seconds. And tremble at the horrors of the potentially catastrophic 'Y2K.'"

A bit much? Never. There exist instructional videos on how to dial a number on a cell phone. Because, you know, on that flashy new cellular dee-vice they went and turned all the buttons around to make it real hard for ordinary folks to access new technology. Except they didn't. And while no one made any instructional videos on transitioning from the typewriter to the word processor to the laptop, there were actually people who needed instructions on what the "@" character did. These are those hilarious tech videos.

If you're jonesing for the simpler times of the '90s after seeing these "instructional" videos, check out the most nostalgic toys of the 1900s and the most nostalgia-inducing '90s school supplies.
