    From a myspace bulletin...


    if you are under the age of 11...you should not read this
    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,not all this spider pig stuff... I am sorry but three conscious years of the 90's just wont cut it

    You're a 90's kid if:

    You can finish this... ice ice _ _ _ _

    You remember watching:
    -Doug
    -Ren & Stimpy
    -Pinky and the Brain
    -AAAAAAAH Real Monsters!
    -Rockos modern Life.

    You've ever ended a sentence with the word "PSYCHE!"

    You just cant resist finishing this . . . "Iiiiiiin west philidelphia born and raised . . ."

    You remember:
    -TGIF
    -Step by Step
    -Family Matters
    -Dinosaurs
    -Boy Meets World.

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

    You got super excited when it was Oregon Trail day in computer class at school.

    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 everything was settled by:
    -rock paper scissors or
    -bubble gum bubble gum in a dish or
    -daddy had a donkey inky binky bonky or
    - ennie meanie miney moe.

    when cops and robbers was a daily activity.

    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.

    "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 America's 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 remember watching:
    -The Magic School Bus
    -Wishbone
    -Reading Rainbow on PBS.

    You remember when Yo-Yos were cool.

    You remember those Where's Waldo books.

    You remember eating Warheads.

    You remember watching:
    -the 1st Batman
    -Aladdin
    -Ninja Turtles
    -3 Ninjas movies.

    You remember Ring Pops.

    You remember drinking Surge, and Tang.

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

    When they made the new lunchables so that you could make pizza AND tacos.

    You remember boom boxes vs. cd players.

    Making those little paper fortune cookie things, and then predicting your life with them.

    You played and/or collected "Pogs" :)

    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.

    Michael Jordan was a king.

    YIKES pencils and erasers were the stuff!

    All your school supplies were "Lisa Frank" brand.

    You remember when the new Beanie Babies and Talking Elmo were always sold out

    You collected those Beanie Babies.

    Carebears

    Gak was the coolest stuff invented.

    Lambchop's song never ended.

    The old dollar bills.

    Silver dollars, which were cool to have.

    You remember a time before the WB.

    You collected all the Troll dolls

    If you even know what an original walkman is.

    You remember wanting to sit on the orange Nickelodeon couch.

    You've gotten creeped out by "Are You Afraid of the Dark?"

    You know the Macarena 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.

    You remember playing on merry go rounds at the playground.

    Before the MySpace frenzy . . .

    Before the Internet & text messaging . . .

    Before Sidekicks & iPods . . .

    Before MIKE JONES . . .

    Before PlayStation2 or X-BOX . . .

    Before Spongebob . . .

    Back when you put off the 5 hours of homework you had every night.

    When light up sneakers were cool.

    When you rented VHS tapes, not DVDs.

    When gas was $0.95 a gallon & 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 walkman.

    When checking out drawing books and that one book about the rainbow fish from the library was THE cool thing to do.

    You had slap braclets!

    Way back.

    Before we realized all this would eventually disappear.

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

    Wow! I remember all that stuff! But not because I was a 90's kid. (Ha! maybe 1890's :laugh: ) But because our son was born in 1985 and he went through all those fads. He had every Ninja Turtle ever made. He could say 12 syllable dinosaur names when he was 3.
    Time sure flies. He's getting married tomorrow.

    a children's show about false religion of mother earth(gaia) worship.

    I had boys, I've seen it all, but,,, I've never seen a barbie movie, or girlie disney movies made after 1980. I ahve ninja turtles and g.i. joes living in my basement.

    I'm certainly not a 90's kid, but I have children and grandchildren, and great grandchildren, so I haven't missed out on any of these things. :)

    One of my favorite parts about the release of Win95 was Microsoft boasting that General Protection Faults, or GPFs, the notorious error of Win3.1, were a thing of the past. They were right about that, of course. The only problem was that they replaced GPFs with Fatal Exception Errors. :BangHead:

    Anybody remember watching the Smurfs? Or ALF? Maybe those are from the 80's instead of the 90's. I was so heartbroken when they took ALF off the air. That was a funny show.
