Things that were popular 20 years ago that aren't seen much now!

I still see people with nice cameras, but, that's about it!

Reddit users provide a list of things that were common in 1999 that are completely unusual or unheard of in 2019:

  • Smoking in restaurants and bars
  • Knowing phone numbers by heart
  • Having to be home at a certain day and time to watch something on TV
  • Rewinding a movie
  • Using a map
  • Discmen
  • Beepers
  • Answering machines
  • Cameras
  • Pre 9-11 Travel: security checks were so quick you didn’t need to be at the airport for hours before your flight. You could even go to the gate without having a ticket. And you could bring more than 3 ounces of liquid in your carry-on.
  • Y2K hysteria: Remember when everyone thought the world would end in 2000?
  • Pay phones and collect calls
  • Faxes
  • Dial-up modems
  • Catalog shopping (Reddit)
