Being born in 1987, I was lucky enough to have viewed the entire events of the 90's from beginning to end and I still remember some of the fantastic treasures from it that are now long gone or sitting on eBay somewhere in the darkest dungeons of the internet. I have taken the liberty to list off a few of these memorable moments in history in completely randomized order based on which ones I think need to go next.


Y2K: Possibly the best gem in the entire 90's fortune was the legendary Y2K bug in which everyone believed that upon reaching the year 2,000 that all computers would malfunction and launch nuclear missiles all over the world! Never has there been a more appropriate decade that people were spending their lives building bomb shelters and stocking up on food rations! We even had chareties trying to raise funds to help for when this appocalypse happened! But then the year 2,000 came and the computers continued on as normal. And despite the fact that I was waiting for the appocalypse all throughout the 90's, I managed to completely forget about the Y2K bug during new years so I couldn't enjoy the imagination of people shitting themselves in both relief and anger at having wasted their lives building inpentrable basements!

N64: Until this system came out, the only consoles were the 2d Nintento, Super Nintendo, and Sega. Which is why when a 3d console came out, everybody was pissing themselves in rabid anticipation and glee at what this could mean for video games and as we can see, it has worked out quite well. When you bought a Super Nintendo, it came with a demo VHS tape showing off some of the games for the yet to be released console and many people couldn't wait. Soon afterwards, Sony developed a 3d console known as the Playstation and somewhere along the line, Sega did too known as the Sega CD or what ever which at the time was believed to be the worst fucking console ever!


Creepy Crawlers Oven: Based on the rather strange cartoon show known as Creepy Crawlers in which a young boy manages to befriend a bunch of monsters and fight off a bunch as well, came an orange and green oven which allowed you to place in a strange gack-like molding and bake it into rubbery monsters to play with. Sadly however, the toy burned out after only a few weeks and after it was done baking the rubbery toys, the oven was incredibly hot and caused a few accidents by burns. I have never seen one again since the early 90's.

Family Time: A time where my familly didn't have a computer was the 90's until about 1998 or so. At this time, we actually had the occasional family game nights or would play together... But then when computers became popular to have, we kind of drifted appart...


Internet is New: The Internet was just beginning to sprout up and practically the entire population was speaking 1337 speak. An invention designed for fast communications had in the span of 3 seconds, become a world wide troll fest until people learned the importance of being able to type correctly.


The Original Power Rangers: The original fucking show with Rita somehow hurling a staff from the moon all the way to earth with her puny arms. The show was pretty awesome especially when the green ranger began to singlehandedly kick the entire group's ass and how everybody was arguing over who the mysterious white ranger was going to be even though kids at the age of a mere 5 years old had already guessed it was Tomy! Now though they had new power rangers such as ninja force and lightning storm and are even comming out with toys that have absolutely no appearence in the show. It's become a fucking ruin of it's former self!


Hand Grenade Water Baloon: exactly like it says, water baloons designed to be colored like hand grenades. I guess with the terrorists however, this idea has been scrapped for the kiddies...


And my personal favorite gem....

It was a time in which politicians weren't the dipshits that they are today. Sure Bill Clinton screwed a secretary, but before that, I don't recall one single report about any sort of political disputes on the news. Now though, we have reports of all kinds of shit and a number of rights that have existed in America for centuries have been removed just because some stupid Christian managed to take control over the country and didn't like the way the rights counteracted his bible, I hope to whatever the hell runs the universe that there will eventually be a president who restores these rights, but as it is now, the only possible chance I see would be a revolution and kick these dipshits out...
