The year that almost everybody thought the world was going to end and all the computers would crash. But, of cource, none of this happened.
It's almost 2000, QUICK buy some spam, beans, and a shotgun!

The first year of the new millennium and the beginning of the 2000s.

Basically just the 1990s and the last good, stable year.

George Bush had no power yet, the Twin Towers were still standing, 2D graphics were still accepted, etc.

The Y2K problem was finally over and practically no computers crashed.
2000 is the year we thought that computers would crash but it didn't.

The death of the 1990's =(.

Also the year everyone went out and blew tons of cash on generators in suspicion of the world ending... idiots (in reference to same idiots of 6/6/2006 and future idiots of 12/21/2012).
Apocalyptic Idiot: Dude man, I coulda swore we were all goners when we hit the year 2000! It's definitely comin' in 2012...

Me: You're a moron. I've got your apocalypse right here in my fists... Viva la 90's!

America's last great year before its big wake-up call with 9/11. Also, final reign of Bill 'Pimp' Clinton and marks the dawn of the Sixth Generation Console Games; with PS2 out this year as well as DreamCast. Some noteworthy events include, but not limited to, Y2K, great movies (see Fight Club, American Beauty, Gladiator, Cast Away, X-Men). Unemployment was at its lowest in nearly 30 years in America during this time period (1999-2000).

Culturally, fashion was the same with the late 90's and musically R@B and Post-Grunge began taking reigns on the radio charts.
Contrary to what most people think, 2000 isn't the start of the new millennium. It's really 2001.

The year that people thought the world would end. The Y2K bug was a glitch that on the day it turned 2000, old computers would mistake it as the year 1900 (a LONG time ago). They fixed computers. Thought to be the start of the third millenium, but since there was no year zero, 2001 (a way better year, even if Burger King had veggie burgers in 2000) had to start it. 2000 only started the new century.
Interviewer: What were you doing in the year 2000?
Me: I was working as a bank teller.

The last full year of the roaring 90's, even though some wise ass might point out that it's not literally in the 90's. It was the 90's generation still.

2000 was a year of hope and naive hope for the world to keep going the way it was.

And so it was, until, BOOM, 9/11 happens, we go until a war, the economy crumbles, there's mass shootings, kids become socially fucked up, and the world sucks.

I think all 90's kids will remember 2000 as the last year they can look back on and think "damn, what a time to be alive" It really was. 2000 was a time to be alive. We all naively hoped that the prosperity of the 90's would go on forever. But indeed they didn't, and the Roaring 20's should have taught us that prosperous generations usually come to a very abrupt end with no warning whatsoever. If we're ever lucky enough to live in a prosperous generation like that, just remember, enjoy it while it lasts, because it WILL end abruptly. We've learned that the hard way twice. First in 1929 and then in 2001.
2000 really was a time to be alive. Everyone had a good will, no one was scared, and teenagers weren't so damn dysfunctional and arrogant.
