The Top 5 Things That Went Away And Made A Comeback
In honor of the restoration of the Brontosaurus as a real thing (honestly, I didn't know that it went away), I wanted to come up with a list of the top 5 things that were taken from us too soon, but eventually made a comeback.
Apparently there has been a debate raging in the scientific community for over 100 years as to whether the Brontosaurus was an actual dinosaur or just the product of a 19th century scientist's overactive imagination.
But, good news everyone, one of the more beloved dinos was an actual thing, according to a new report.
When I was a kid, we all learned the nine planets. To this day, I still remember "My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas"
But, in 2006, with a new official definition of what makes something a planet, Pluto was excluded.
Which, of course, makes it very difficult to explain what our very educated mothers just served us.
Pluto got a little bit of respect back, now it's considered a "Minor Planet".
When I was in middle school there were a few must haves when it came to being one of the "cool kids" - a Starter jacket, snap bracelets, and Reebok Pumps.
Remember those shoes with the little basketball button on the tongue? Pressing it repeatedly allowed you to adjust the fit of the shoe (and cut off circulation, if that seemed like a good idea at the time). Of course, there was also the release valve which let out the satisfying "hissssss" when pressed.
Reebok Pumps have been around, but are only recently experiencing a resurgence with their 25th anniversary releases.
Oh, the iconic boy bands - from New Kids On The Block to The Backstreet Boys and *NSYNC - they enjoyed explosive success, their fires burned brightly, and then they graduated from boys to men (no pun intended), and they sailed off into occasional reunions and celebrity cruises.
But the boy bands are back in a big way, with One Direction leading the pack (although, down one member now) and Rixton and 5 Seconds of Summer close behind.
