How to Write for Buzzfeed in Two Easy Steps

1. Write three or fewer sentences along the lines of "Here's [x thing from the 90s]. That was certainly a thing that existed. The 90s, man." No more depth will be required.

2. Pad with a number of pictures and gifs. The gifs don't even have to be related, they just have to communicate a truly over the top feeling for how great Boy Meets World was, or something.

3. Congratulate yourself on effectively communicating in the post-literate, post-fact, "everything is perfect and flawless and criticism hurts me" generation. (step optional)

You didn't use the word 'zeitgeist'! "I have captured the zeitgeist of the period."
