8. Changing the language setting of someone's phone into another language.

In 2006, there was no funnier prank than changing someone's phone into another language. In 2016, it wasn't that funny any more.

In 2006, you couldn't wear a long skirt if you were short, and having a pear-shaped bum was something to be ashamed of. In 2016, you could wear what you wanted.

12. Thongs that were pulled up so high they poked out of the top of your trousers.

In 2006, it was cool to let people know you had a permanent wedgie. In 2016, underwear was much more comfortable.


14. Beauty and the Geek.
