Things People Did Before They Were Cool

Almost everyone has a story of seeing some now-legendary band for 5 bucks, or can claim to be the first person to invent a now-popular sandwich. If anything it's the people who got into bitcoin early on accident that we all envy the most. At least we can all be forward thinkers in our own minds. It's fun to be on the leading edge of good things before they get ruined by money and popularity, but there's just as much a chance that a huge trend will quickly become something no one talks about anymore.

Huge Trends No One Talks About Anymore

Times change, and that's probably for the best. The past few decades have seen the rise and fall of clear cola, kids wearing their clothes backwards, and a strange assortment of stupid catch-phrases. While this is all stuff that was kind of flash-in-the-pan, there's tons of other stuff that has been around for way longer than people think.

Times at School a Popular Kid Destroyed Their Reputation

There was always a sort of extended leniency toward crap that popular kids could get away with, but sometimes they either flew too close to the sun or played a part in some high school's "incident". Sometimes it wasn't even up to them, but that's just how things shake out sometimes. Sometimes they come back for round two and make high school reunions awkward.

People Share What Their School's Popular Kid Did To Lose Everyone's Respect

It's very possible to be popular in high school without also being a huge douche, but those two things aren't always mutually exclusive. Sometimes a popular kid does something that they think they can get away with and it backfires like the dickens. Usually it's some horrible lie or evil thing they they tried, and realize too late that people won't always have their back. Besides that, it's after high school when people really change (or don't).

Huge Trends That Everyone Just Kinda Forgot About

Man, remember when bacon was a huge thing? There were bacon boardgames, bacon wallets, and bacon flavored soda. It seemed fine at the time, but looking back really makes you question your judgement.

If this reminded you too much of your past, here are some 90s life hacks for you to live your best 90s life.
