Reddit really does ask the best questions.

The latest conundrum that’s got the site's users talking is: What would have been considered uncool 15 years ago, but now is seen as cool/trendy?

In the age of the hipster, you'd think that should be easy. But when we put our mind to it, all we can think of is corduroy flares. They’re cool again, aren’t they?

According to Reddit users, these are the things you can welcome back into your life and still be cool:

Technology:

Stock cell phone ringtones
