    Tamgotchi's were the BIG thing. I remember receiving one for my birthday and I was in awe.

    Saved By the Bell, Fresh Prince, Michael Jordan, Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls, Power Rangers, Beanie Babies and can't forget the Razor scooters!

    Tamagotchis were popular in the 1990s, but surely the people who enjoyed them were kids born in the 1980. ;)


    Besides, the '80s was the best decade to be born. Best cartoons, by far.

    You probably grew up in the 90s if:

    • You had to pay more than a dollar per hour for being connected to 56K dialup.
    • "Portable music" (an oxymoron at the time, btw) would mean carrying a walkman with a set of tapes. Some of them were compilations you had made yourself, or you would have to rewind or fast-forward around all the album-fillers.
    • You remember that Blur was better than Oasis.
    • You could spend $1500 on a new computer, only to see it completely outdated two weeks later.
    • You had a computer with a floppy-disk drive and no optical. To get a scanner to work, you had to install SCSI-drivers manually.
    • "Analyzing" and interpreting a novel, movie or other artwork could lead you to absurd results.
    • You actually believed that inhaling a joint once would seal your doom as a heroin junkie.
    • Laser Tag was the kewlest (sic!) way to tag your friends.
    • The sentence "wax on, wax off" not only sounds familiar to you, but you even know the deeper meaning of it.
    • Sonic the Hedgehog would tell you what to do.
    • "No soup for you", "double dip" and "the little kicks" were topics in the breaks between classes.

    You know you were born in the 90's if you're now in your teens.

    Socrates said something similar 2000 years ago (the young people of today...). I bet his parents' generation also said it. And their parents as well. What is the difference from today?

    Hey, don't paint us all with that brush!

    Kidding. It's disgustingly true among the vast majority of 90s kids.
