19 Things Kids Born After the Year 2000 Will Never Understand. The Struggle Was Real!

If you were old enough to remember New Year’s Eve in 1999, you’ll remember that Y2K was a hot topic. Most people didn’t know whether that elusive computer bug would cause problems since computers only used the last 2 digits of the year. There were fears that computers wouldn’t recognize the year 2000 from the year 1900.
