In a world before texts, hashtags and Instagrams, AIM was the ultimate form of communication.

Whether your screen name started with a “lil” or an “xO," there's no doubt you spent hours crafting the perfect buddy profile with your crushes initials on display.

Despite our cringeworthy My Chemical Romance away messages, there was nothing better than spending hours chatting with BFFs about the latest episode of "Laguna Beach" on your parents' Dell monitor.

This episode of "Generation whY" will have you reminiscing about convos with SmarterChild and have you ROFLing like it's *~2002~*.
