The 2000s (two-thousands) was the decade that occurred roughly from 2003 to 2009. Computers started to become actually decent, which allowed for truly 3D Video Games, and MMOs like World of Warcraft and Maplestory, along with Web 2.0. 80% of Memes were created during the 2000s, and penetrated the mainstream, thus causing an Eternal September and making the normies start to ruin our fun. Sites like 4chan started to become complete shit by the end of this decade. Encyclopedia Dramatica was brought into existence during the 2000s, single-handedly giving billions of people a reason to live. The economy went to shit, fucking america up the ass even harder than the initial bush presidency. A nigger managed to become el presidente of Murka after W Fucked off, mainly due to White Guilt. Lame ass subcultures such as emo kids and scenefags were at their peak.

Everyone hated this decade when it was going on, but as time went on to tell, it was a utopia compared to the 2010s, and now "00s kids" (people born in the mid-90s who have given up on trying to be 90s kids and/or people born in the early 2000s) look back on it with the same rose-tinted glasses that 90s nostalgiafags have on, with most of the nostalgia being for the 2000-2006 period.
