Nostalgia

The term nostalgia describes a sentimentality for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations. The word is a learned formation of a Greek compound, consisting of νόστος (nóstos), meaning \"homecoming\", a Homeric word, and ἄλγος (álgos), meaning \"pain, ache\", and was coined by a 17th-century medical student to describe the anxieties displayed by Swiss mercenaries fighting away from home. Described as a medical condition—a form of melancholy—in the Early Modern period, it became an important trope in Romanticism.

Watching cartoons in a super hero t-shirt while eating a bowl of Fruit Loops extends your life 13.35 minutes for each instance you do it.    At least that's what I just made up.
