The world is a different place than it was 20 years ago. We've been introduced to "American Idol"Tom Brady has won seven Super Bowls, and some guy started something called "Facebook."


People on the internet are talking about things that were common or "socially acceptable" in 2002 . . . but are NOT today. 


Here are a few highlights:


1. "Going out without a cell phone."


2. "Faux hawks, which were the mullet of the 2000s."


3. "Hanging out at the mall for hours."


4. "Describing men as 'metrosexual' because they took care of themselves."


5. "Fat-shaming and body-shaming."  


6. "Calling on the phone without texting first."  


7. "Smoking was still allowed inside most bars and restaurants in most of the country. 


8. "Being in chat rooms."


9. "Frosted tips." And "going out with concealer as lipstick on."


10. Saying "that's gay" as an insult.
