Unfortunately, they have not forgotten that time you farted in public or bled through your pants. SORRY. Here are some other things we mostly forget about from the 2000s (except for the anthrax attacks).
Can you imagine if this was still the case? There would be no Beauty Bloggers, no satisfying pimple popping compilations, and no in-depth cooking porn. The 2000s were indeed a dark time and we forgot about this because it is DEPRESSING.
Fun story my husband wouldn’t want me to share: he actually owned some of the Girls Gone Wild videos and I watched them because they were there and I honestly had to know what they contained. I can only say candy bar and vagina and leave it at that. My poor, poor brain.
Yes, those movies were terrible, but they gave us something we could never forget:
As Napster and Limewire gained popularity, big music companies looked into ways to protect their wares from illegal downloads. Sony BMG decided to hide rootkits in their CDs and not alert consumers to the software being installed on their computers. When technologically savvy consumers found out, Sony BMG released an uninstall fix that required email address submission and multiple annoying visits to the company’s website. It was later found that the uninstall left consumers wide open to hacker attacks.
Mine was pink and I still have it in a drawer in my house.
I can confirm that I routinely paid less than .99 cents a gallon while in high school. Many, many nights were spent driving around, listening to music, and seeking out allegedly haunted parts of town.
SOME OF US NEVER FORGOT.
