      i feel as if pipe bombs became fairly common on the 1990's, along with the Anarchist Cookbook.

      Wish I could find a picture of the Post with the Unabomber's manifesto in it. I think my mom still has that paper.

      Agreed. It was probably the best of the series... mind you I haven't played the one that came out last year. Definitely the best of the 90s.

      How many of you guys had this weird device. I got one back in the day for christmas. I think was like the buttkicker for the 90's. It worked on games movies and music. Sometimes I just used it to amplify my SNES games.

      That brings back some irritating memoreis that have taken YEARS to get out of my head and are now back. My mom tried to be funny over and over through the course of most of my childhood and into my early adult life by doing the "not the mama" thing from that show.

      It's the same as the Mario Kart drinking game "Don't Drink and Drive". Everyone pours a beer and races. You have to finish the beer before you finish the race, only you can't drink and drive. To drink your beer, you have to set the controller down.

      Sounds like a good drinking game! Mine is hooked up to my LED. I actually sold my Diddy Kong racing way back when to EB games so that I could buy another game (could have been Halo) Needless to say I seriously regret that decision (I sold all my mario partys as well... and its eb games too so you know they gave me jack squat worth of credit )
      Hey, at least I kept Golden eye and Smash bros

      Being born in '82 I could repost about everything that has already been shown. It's also hard to not confuse the 80's with the 90's.

      Some that haven't been posted...(maybe)...

      Has this not been mentioned yet?...

      That would be what I'm talking about. I can't even google image search a photo. It's like they never existed.

      Seriously? Some of the things in this thread are not only from the '80s, but also the '60s and '70s!

      I have a feeling that some of the things were posted simply because you younger guys first experienced them in the '90s. I don't mean that to be offensive, I just have a feeling that's what's happening to this thread.

      Maybe it's just because I'm older, but a good number of things posted in this thread simply scream out to me as things that are NOT from the '90s.

      It's a good thread, regardless of the misconstrued memories.
