"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you might realize you're 30 and haven't accomplished anything since the Bush Administration." - Some 48-year-old guy named Ferris.

2005 was 10 years ago. This might seem obvious, since it's 2015. On the other hand, it's not obvious because I was 20 in 2005 and I'm pretty sure I'm 20 right now. Hold on, let me check. Shit. Turns out I have obeyed the laws of time despite my badass nature and now I'm just a 30-year-old in a 20-year-old's Threadless.com t-shirt. Hold on, let me check if Threadless still exists. They do! In case you, too, have forgotten that time continues to flow around you, here are 10 jarring reminders that a decade really has passed since you vowed never to age another day.


1. The Star Wars franchise was mercifully laid to rest after being tortured like Luke Skywalker at the hands of Emperor Palpatine and aging about as well as...well, as Emperor Palpatine on a lightning bender.

Revenge of the Sith was the most well-received of the Prequels That Never Should Have Been, but I'd have to go back and re-watch it to determine if the praise was genuine or mostly due to relief at finally reaching the end of George Lucas' CGI-filled revisionist fever dreams. It's hard to imagine now with the excitement over The Force Awakens, but in 2005 no one was saying "More Star Wars movies, please!"

2. The world started spelling "bananas" out loud, and never stopped.
