The Aughts aren’t exactly an ancient, prehistoric era — in fact, a good chunk of it is strikingly similar to today’s world. In 2007, for example, we were eagerly awaiting another Pirates of the Caribbean film and a Spider-Man movie. Beyoncé and Rihanna topped the charts, and everyone was wrapped up in the drama of the sexy doctors on Grey’s Anatomy. So, life might not seem that different from then. The world certainly hasn’t changed that much in the past ten years, especially when compared to how much its changed in the past 25, 50, or 100 years.
That said, 2007 wasn’t exactly the same as today. In fact, a lot of predictions and beliefs from just a decade past ended up being completely incorrect.
