10 Trends That Disappeared Without Anyone Noticing

Annoying trends will fade away into obscurity, eventually.  There’s a thread online where people are talking about cultural things that “quietly went away without anyone noticing.”  They include:

1.  Waterbeds

2.  Facebook “poke wars”

3.  “When you turned off the TV, how the image would shrink to a dot before slowly fading away”

4.  Flash mobs

5.  Traveler’s checks

6.  HQ Trivia

7.  “ROFL”, now we just go straight from LOL to LMAO.  (Maybe because we’re in a post-COVID world, and the floor might be dirty.)  (???)

8.  Planking

9.  Ringtones

10.  Those black plastic bases on two-liter soda bottles.
