The Game Boy Advance takes it back to those weekend car trips to my grandparents house. Also, when a friend of mine (who still has theirs with various games and accessories) showed theirs to their kids it completely blew their minds at what a Nintendo Switch looked like back in the day.

Take me back to June 11, 2001

Ready for a walk down memory lane?

The date is June 11, 2001, and it's a Monday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Gemini. The weekend has just passed, so some people are feeling a bit down. Others are tired after partying too much.

The summer of 2001 is in full swing. The weather is warm, and the evenings are brighter than usual. Most schools and colleges are now finished until August or September. In America, the song "Lady Marmalade" by Christina Aguilera, Lil Kim, Mya & Pink is at the top of the singles charts, while "Angel" by Shaggy is the number-one song in the UK. George W. Bush Jnr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Swordfish is at the top of the box office.

Tony Blair is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. On television, people are watching popular shows such as "King of the Hill", "Oz", "Stargate SG-1", and "Celebrity Deathmatch". A relatively new form of communication called "text messaging" is becoming more widespread. Although the technology has been around since the mid-1990s, it was only recently that cell providers allowed users to send SMS messages to people on different networks.

In technology news, more and more music companies are beginning to release MP3 players. The new MP3 format means that music listeners are able to listen to multiple albums on the go. Meanwhile, the Nokia 3310 is one of the most popular cellphones on the market at the moment. Stores across the world are currently selling a wide range of custom covers for the phone. It's 2001, so the music charts are being dominated by the likes of Christina Aguilera, Janet Jackson, OutKast, Crazy Town, Destiny's Child, Usher, Alicia Keys, Blu Cantrell and Jennifer Lopez.

An outbreak of foot-and-mouth disease in the United Kingdom is causing a crisis in the British agriculture and tourism sectors. The authorities are killing cows and sheep in an effort to halt the disease. Timothy McVeigh has just been executed for his role in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Aaliyah, Thuy Trang, George Harrison, and Layne Staley would all still be alive.

People are playing video games such as "Deus Ex", "Tenchu 2: Birth of the Stealth Assassins", "Spider-Man", and "WWF No Mercy". Children and teenagers are watching television shows such as "The Simpsons", "Rugrats", "Batman Beyond", and "Even Stevens". Children are playing with toys such as Amazing Ally, LEGO Soccer Championship Challenge, Bop It Extreme, and the Game Boy Advance.
