      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.

      I was born in 82, so I'm not that much older than you.

      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.

      How could I forget the most captivating saga of the mid-90s? This was such a huge deal.

      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).

      Would any of you redo your childhood knowing what you know now about the future, could you guys do without all the technology and social networks around. I'd go back.
