One of the leading Y2K aesthetic tweeters on Twitter goes through what was the Millennium Dome.

As someone who was too young to know what it was other than 'there' and 'vaguely a massive failure' (I only visited it once after it became The O2), wooow this fucking thing was worse than I could have possibly imagined.

Alright, fuck it let's do this. If you got a patreon, ko-fi, liberapay or whatever, reply with it and I will boost. Cannot promise donations, but I will use what reach I have to help if I can. Let's actually build that support network I was talking about earlier.

I encourage others to boost this status and all the posts that end up beneath it to get as wide a spread as possible.

Not sure if this will even work, but I feel like I should at least try.
