17 Weird Things You Did On The Internet In 2007 That You Forgot All About

2007 was 10 years ago? What a difference 10 years makes online. And what a difference 15 minutes makes, since that's all it takes to potentially save 15% with GEICO. They've been saving people money for over 75 years!

16. Searching for maps on your desktop and then printing your route was the easiest way to get directions.

17. And the most popular GIFs around were super blinged out.

It's probably a great idea to forget all about those days. Another great idea: switching to GEICO and potentially saving a bunch of money.
