Think back to the thing you grew up with that makes you cringe now. Chances are there's plenty: My memories of the early 2000s are filled with awful oversized hoodies, Rocawear, and crappy Lifetime movies. We're not even going to mention the music or that Dungeons and Dragons film.

"What has aged well?" –– This was today's burning question from Redditor meganthekitten, who reminded us that there's actually a lot more out there that we can look back on with fondness.


"I feel like..."

I feel like the only thing in the movie Office Space that hasn't aged well is their use of floppy disk drives. Aside from that, it's still an accurate microcosm of life on a cubicle farm.

"Many pretenders..."

The word "Cool."

Many pretenders to the throne have tried to replace it such as rad, groovy, awesome, wicked, aces, tubular, lit, etc but none have passed the test of time.

"The practical effects..."

The practical effects in the first Jurassic Park still look great.

"If he does age that is."

Paul Rudd. If he does age that is.

"As such..."

Astronomer here! Many extremely sensitive particle experiments looking for neutrinos or dark matter will use lead ingots from Roman shipwrecks over 2,000 years ago. Why? The reason is lead has a very slight radioactivity to it that takes a few hundred years to decay. It basically never matters unless you're looking for very sensitive particles and want to cut down on false positives.

As such, the going rate for ancient lead is about 40 times that of normal lead. I always thought this was an interesting mix of old and new.

"The comics..."

Calvin & Hobbes.

The comics are still timely and relevant today.

"A lot of games..."

Super Nintendo games. A lot of games from the N64 and PS1 era have aged very poorly because of the wonky controls and low polygon graphics but SNES was the peak of side scrollers. The games still look great and the controls are tight.

"The movie was funny..."

Idiocracy is more and more becoming a reality at a shockingly fast rate. The movie was funny in 2006, it's hauntingly familiar in 2019.

"Its format..."

Deep Space Nine. Its format, plot and themes were well ahead of its time, and the show is better now than it was when it originally aired.

"She turned 98..."

My grandmother. She turned 98 this weekend. She lives alone, has never been ill or had any health problems, the only med she takes is for high blood pressure. No hearing aides or anything. I went over last week to find her on a ladder cleaning the gutters on her roof.

Have you ever found yourself in a conversation, when someone brings up a topic they aren't too familiar with, but you are?

This gives you the opportunity to sweep in and share your knowledge on the subject.

While one would imagine that your relative expertise on the subject might result in thanks and appreciation, more often than not, the reaction from your friends is "why do you know that?"

Awkward as it may feel at the moment, there are very few people who don't carry some unusual areas of expertise and trivia on subjects most others are most likely unfamiliar with.

Redditor quadruple_b was curious to learn the random facts others have shared which wound up bringing their conversations to a halt, leading them to ask:

What is a really weird fact, that makes people say "why do you know that?"

As relationships get serious, it's understandable that one will want to know as much as possible about their significant others.

That is, until we make a discovery about them which might forever change how we view our relationship.

Sometimes, it might be a discovery that might just take some getting used to, even if we'd have been better off not knowing.

Other times, however, this newfound information makes remaining in this relationship untenable.

Redditor Mr_MightyMouse was curious to hear what people wished they'd never learned about their past and present relationships, leading them to ask:

"What is the one thing you found out about your S/O you wish you never did?"

Don't have sex with people attached to someone already.
