Author's Note: Basic, in this checklist is meant to be about people who get excited for things that are pretty normal or popular. Hence: "everybody's a little bit basic". It is not meant to put down people who like most of these things. Additionally, this is not the only way to define "basic", as the term has been around way longer than this list.
