      False. I started Kindergarten in 1989 and throughout most of my elementary school years trapper keepers were the kitties titties.

      Are You Afraid of the Dark, Pogs, and Goosebumps were all staples of my childhood.

      Getting into HS in 1999 and if you weren't down with double R then there were some serious problems.

      I don't know if these came in out in the 80's or not, but I had to search google to find this thing, I just remembered it made weird noises and it was a stick.

      I remember buying a Rain stick here:



      It was closer to the 80s, but I loved this store as a kid.



      I remember the wall of TVs in Future Shop:

      You got lucky you were born when you did. While Korn was ok, they set the pattern for music to be ruined. Judging by your 'cool 14 year old' music tastes, if you were born just a bit later, you'd end up liking nickelback.

      The 90s for me (born in 85) evoke a few things

      1. tub thumping-Chumbawumba
      2. The macarena
      3. pictures of my sisters and her friends wearing flannel and overalls
      4. JNCO's, sagging
      5. AOL
      6. Clinton
      7. McGwire/Sosa
      8. Jordan

      and for me, sadly, the decline of Metallica.

      Going off of Internal Comubstion I think the 10 things I most associate with the 90s would be (no particular order):

      1. AOL (especially AIM)
      2. Baggy clothing (Jncos for skaters/rockers and Tommy Hilfiger and whatnot for the hip-hop fans)
      3. Seinfeld
      4. The Simpsons
      5. Michael Jordan/Chicago Bulls
      6. Mark McGwire/Sammy Sosa
      7. Nu-metal
      8. Everyone being pissed at life although there was so much prosperity (see: grunge and to a lesser extent gangster rap)
      9. The Matrix
      10. Will Smith the movie star

      Wow we had a best store in my hometown of Tucson, I only knew of one in town, it was like the Best buy of the 90's at the time. I don't remember much about it, just remember electronics where sold there.

      You know how I know you repeated a year of school (or went to pre-first)?

      Best stores were nothing like Best Buy, it was a goofy place where I vaguely remember 'ordering' items on the floor using a color-coded keyboard, and then going to a conveyor belt at the back of the store to pick up what we wanted to buy.

      As a kid, I remember it being a fantastic place.

      Yeah had to look up what theses stores were about, I remember going in at least once with my parents, wasn't aware about there concept of selling things. I guess 96 was the last year for all of them.

      I think one of my favorite things about the 90's: missing things.

      The late 90's were very much the last days of not having access to everything. Missed a TV show? Tough cookies. Missed a phone call? Hope they left a message. Someone came by to see you, and you were out? Too bad.

      I actually miss it. I miss being able to go on a date, and no one could call you...no one could text you...no one was updating facebook during the date etc. If there was a disastrous fire or emergency at home, you didn't find out until after...and in an odd way that was awesome.

      Now it's constant communication, DVR'ing everything, etc. In turn, this constant availability/information reduces the import of such things. (gets off "Old Man" soap box).

      Guys, just because something came out in the 80's, doesn't mean it didn't peak in the 90's. Trapper keepers were pretty huge in the 90s.

      Some more 90's fun:


      Maybe it was just where I grew up, but around 96/97, we thought it was cool to wear these:



      With these:



      and more:


      not my picture, but i have the EXACT same bag I got in 1997. And I STILL use it. Things were even made better in the 90's.




      haven't seen this team on here yet:




      more:



      not sure when this came out, but it was definitely in every american household with a boy in the 90's.



      i remember Wal-Mart having 2-3 aisles just of all the different brands of these guys. I got a "surround" Philips Magnavox and thought I was the coolest kid in the world. Loved that thing to death.


      And not sure about you guys, but this video creeped me out back then! And still does!

      This was a good example of generation gaps in the 90s. Interesting to see how 2 different generations remember the 90s. (born 79, so my teen years were spent in the 90s)

      Sure do. While I feel my ICQ number is high (4millions), its so much lower than what I think people have now.
      Oh man, you just reminded me, remember those "dial 10 10 321" commercials.

      And stupid Dennis Miller talking about how you can and can't get stuff for a $1...
      My legend dates back to the 12th Century you see. My legend is quite old. The 12th Century was a long time ago. It was summer and so cold from the snow because it was actually winter or maybe it was Monday. It could have been a Thursday or possibly a Saturday or was it Tuesday though it could have been Wednesday or a Monday.
