If you were a time traveler from 2004, and you arrived here in 2014, you'd need a few things explained, such as the iPhone, the iPad and Lindsay Lohan's and Tina Fey’s respective careers afterMean Girls.

Daniel Franzese and Lindsay Lohan in “Mean Girls.” (Paramount Pictures/Everett Collection) Ten years ago today, “Mean Girls" debuted in theaters, introducing a ground-breaking character: Damian, Cady Heron’s (Lindsay Lohan) early friend at the animal house of North Shore High School.
