    back in the 90's

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by coral reef, May 4, 2007.

    I found this on myspace, it took me way back and gave me a laugh, mostly at myself for i have either done, or remember all things listed here


    Just because you were born in '97 doesn't mean you're a 90's kid.

    It's not like you could remember the original Simpsons. I am sorry but three conscious years of the 90's just wont cut it

    You're a 90's kid if:

    You remember tazos.

    You can finish this [ice ice _ _ _ _ ]

    You remember watching Doug and Ren & Stimpy

    AAAAAAAH Real Monsters!

    You had a favourite member from FIVE.

    You remember when it was actually worth getting up early
    on a Saturday to watch cartoons.

    You remember reading "Goosebumps"

    You took plastic cartoon lunch boxes to school.

    You still get the urge to say "NOT" after (almost) every sentence . . . not

    when everyhting was settled by rock paper scissors

    when we played Hide and go seek until our legs grew numb.

    when we used to obey our parents

    You used to listen to the radio all day long just to record your FAVORITE song of ALL time.

    video hits was actually good.

    "Where in the World is Carmen San Diego?" was both a game and a TV game show.

    Captain Planet. He's a Hero.

    You knew that Kimberly, the pink ranger, and Tommy, the green ranger, were meant to be together.

    You remember when Super Nintendos and Sega Genisis became popular.

    You always wanted to send in a tape to Australiass Funniest Home Videos . . . but never taped anything funny.

    You remember watching Home Alone 1, 2 , and 3 . . . and tried to pull the pranks on "intruders"

    you had a fringe at some point. none of this side fringe crap, a real fringe

    You remember those Where's Wally books.

    You remember eating Warheads.

    You remember watching the Aladin, and Ninja Turtles,.

    You remember Ring Pops.

    If you remember when every thing was "da BOMB!"

    You remember walkmans

    Writing M.A.S.H. notes.

    You knew all the characters names and their life stories on "Saved By The Bell".

    You had at least one Tamagotchi, GigaPet, or Nano and brought it everywhere.

    . . . Furbies.

    You haven't always had a computer, and it was cool to have the internet.

    And Windows 98 was the best.

    You watched the original cartoons of Rugrats, Power Rangers, and Ninja Turtles.

    When Goth (NOT EMO) was crazy cool! Smashing Pumpkins, Sonic Youth, the good bands.

    You remember Bewitched, Jump 5, S-Club 7, and that whole period with the boy bands and pop divas.

    You remember exactly where you were and what you were doing the first time you saw a Britney Spears or N'SYNC video.

    Michael Jordan was a king.

    no one had brand pencilcases

    You collected those Beanie Babies.

    Carebears

    Lambchop

    sesame st was actually good.

    You collected all the Troll dolls

    You owned a portable tape player.

    You know the Macarena and the nutbush by heart.

    "Talk to the hand" . . . enough said

    You always said, "Then why don't you marry it!"

    You went to McDonald's to play in the playplace.

    Before the MySpace frenzy . . .

    Before the Internet & text messaging . . .

    Before iPods . . .

    Before PlayStation2 or X-BOX . . .

    Before Spongebob . . .

    when you got one sheet of homework for the whole week.

    When light up sneakers were cool.

    When you rented VHS tapes, not DVDs.

    when Caller ID was a new thing.

    When we recorded stuff on VCRs.

    When we called the radio station to request songs to hear off of our walkmans.

    When the Chicago Bulls were the best team ever.

    Way back.

    When it was all about N64.

    WHEN YOU TRADED POKEMON CARDS FOR A LIVING.

    Before we realized all this would eventually disappear.

    Who would have thought you'd miss the 90's so much!!!!!

    I remember vaguely half those things...I was born in 91 and I didn't pay much attention to the new crap until it was time for me to pay attention to it....I personally like the new century better than the old one...

    I'm afraid I'm from the 80s decade.

    The decade of true music T'Pau Heart, Marillion, Berlin, Warrant, Stevie nicks, True girl band Bananarama and the Bangles, Classic Goth The Mission The Cult, Fields of the Nephilim, other music The who, cyndi lauper bonnie tyler reo speedwagon starship eric clapton, Bryan adams, Vixen, starky, need i go on so many. the talent was imence what came after the 80s was nothing to what happened in the 80s

    Cloths the styles
    cartoons
    we tuned in to watch Transformers How would Optimus Prime defeat Megatron then we mourned Optimus's death in the movie but praise as Rodimus Prime took on the Power of the Matrix

    GI Joe we'd watch general hawk defeat cobra.

    Defenders of the earth

    Starcom

    starfleet remember the big red robot.

    The whole era was the best. Nothing will ever replace those 10 wonderful years.
    Born in the 70s grow up in the 80s

    I'm from 84 and remember too many of those things......oh the childhood memories I longed to forget....(more for the embarressment lol) my little brother who was on 86 has got quite a few goosebumps books and they still are in his room where they shal forever remain (I HOPE) lol, but yes I too read some of them, the things one does in younger times to beat the boredom and to keep other s happy....and the ninja turtles were awesome and aparently there is a new movie coming out that I will be sure to watch :D:D:D lol
    But you have to admit that someof the cartoons these days are far better than those back in them days, although some of the older ones are far better than those of today

    you want nostalgia?... here's mine... guess what decade:

    washing machines with a wringer

    listening to stories on the radio

    78rpm 'mono' records

    3-for-a-nickel/dime juke boxes

    double feature movies on saturday, for a quarter

    drug store lunch counters with 'hand-made' vanilla, lime or cherry cokes for a nickel

    wartime 'coupons' needed to buy groceries

    ...so, do you kids still feel 'old' reminiscing about the 90s???... ;-)

    love and hugs, great-granny

    Lol.. Well quite a bit on that list applied to me and I was born in 1990, it's suprising how many memories reading that did actually bring back to me though :)

    What about Gak? No one mentioned Gak! They don't make it anymore...so sad. I tried to buy some a month or so ago, when I realized it no longer existed. So sad.

    Actually Maia I know of those washing machines and makes me appreciate my front loader washing machine all the more :-D Praise technology and the comforrts it has given us lol well they make life easier, although hand washing isn't all that hard, done that for a few months before and was a constant thing with a new born and a toddler.....it was never ending.

    not hard?... maybe not if you have strong arms/hands and no back problems from being pg for 2 yrs... i had to do it myself for my first 2 of 7 and that was when diapers had to be washed!... plus, we couldn't afford rubber gloves and the clorox needed to sanitize 'em did wonders for my hands and arms to the elbows...

    ah, 'the good old days'!

    Yeah I actually enjoyed hand washing and yes Maia I had to wash cloth nappies also, I used them as well as disposable nappies.

    I know it may sound strange to some people, but doing a little manual labour is really satifying for me and even now I still hand wash some of my clothing.

    Maia I have got a very bad back actually, and am in constant pain from it through an old injury I sustained from horse riding. But at least I know that the whole time I am in pain that I am alive :) there is a positive to all situations if you dare to look for one. (well that is my opinion anyways)

    I remember most of the above too. Especially the Kimberly and Tommy bit. I used to sit down every day when my daughter was born and watch that. How daft am I?
    And washing machines? I too have had bleeding fingers from hand washing. Our house came with it's own mangle when we bought it and it has been used many a time to break buttons.:)

    no i wasnt reffering to your list either maia, but i have to agree that those times were alot harder, difficult than the era when most of us were brought into the world, but i myself would have loved to have lived in those days, when you actually had to work to acomplish something, when not everything was handed to you, and a penny bought you a pie, and icecream and a soda and you had change left over....
