Since we have a thread about the '80s, I figured we do a thread on the generation I grew up in as well. lol

To be honest, most of what I remembered from my childhood was more like the late '90s, when I got old enough to remember things, so that means no Fresh Prince, Simpsons, or The X-Files until a few decades down the road of my adulthood.

With that said, let's begin:

Nice job. The 90s was huge too. Awesome decade. I wonder where this will bring me. I usually focus on the 80s because I was 6-16 years old then and those were memorable years, but tons happened in the 90s too. I'll focus more on technological advancements, politics, and getting older - things like that.

- Sneaking into bars (had to mention this)
- Bill Clinton
- The Gulf War
- Cable TV (my family ran late)
- O.J. Simpson
- Cheater cable boxes
- Car phones
- The internet
- AOL chat rooms
- Music on CDs
- Computers
- Blockbuster
- 3d based video games (Unreal!!!)
- Seinfeld
- Friends
- Car stereos/bass boxes
- Canal Street stereo stores

Here's a good video of the late 90s for you.
