    We'll have to explain why the following things became shite after the ninties:-
    - Video games and video gaming. There is no and could not be a Gamesmaster TV series now.
    - Music. Pretty much all decent tunes are from or predate the ninties.
    - Toy guns and war toys. In the UK anything resembling and toy gun was banned shortly after the ninties. It also saw the disappearence of action men, Action Force (GI Joe to you yankees), He-Man (without irony) or anything remotely violent like that (seriously the toys featured vehicles which had spinning, slicing razors or death on them).
    - The Real Ghostbusters, Star Wars and cartoons in general. The ninties where a golden age and hay day of animation. Proper scheduling for different age groups meant days where structured and screen time was limited in its own ways, kids would watch the shows and then go meet friends to talk about them. Ghostbusters and Star Wars both got shitty reboots, the cartoons where rubbish, the action figures even more so, including Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker becoming gym hero buff.
    - Comics. They wherent overly expensive and where printed on newsprint, yes, even in the ninties, at least here. Before they where finally eradicated and unmarketable in favour of adult graphic novels and gritty reboots.
    - Fighting Fantasy and other quest books. Yeah. All that awesome shit got wrecked by world of warcraft and the like. It was an almost golden age for publishing and it just went south.

    Me: Yes, they were toys.... that looked like fluffy rabbits sort of, but they had beaks. And spoke their own language.

    Random Preteen of 2025: kids wanted to play with creepy stuff like that?

    Me: Yeah, lots of them. And the younger ones loved to tickle these little red monsters....

    Random Preteen of 2025: Was that like... some sort of app for the BabyPad?

    The noise the 14.4k modem made when dialing and connecting to a local bulletin board or (gasp) AOL.

    Haha, I was going to mention that. I used to know by sound what speed it connected at. Drat, only 9600! Not AOL, though.

    "YOU'VE got MA-il!" *squeeek*

    I think the lowest I actually ever connected at was 1200 baud. I did however have a friend in college who had to put his phone receiver in a cradle and hooked in at some baud rate in the hundreds, though (960? not sure).

    Amazing how big AOL was in the mid-90's... enough to get merged with Time Warner... and now they're pretty much a non-player.

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Wasn't hairspray more of an 80s thing, before that whole panic about it making a hole in the ozone?
