There are 12-year-olds going round calling themselves '90s kids'. Yes, technically they are, but if you were born in December 1999 you're not likely to remember -that- much about the nineties.
I feel like such a hypocrite slagging off people who are only a few years younger than me, but like the above post I was born in 1996 and remember a fair amount of '90s' stuff.
However, 90s crazes (Pokemon, Tamagotchis, Beanie Babies) carried on until pretty recently, so even children born in 2003 will insist they remember it. Aaagh who to agree with?
This post does seem true, though, as what about the people born in the late 80s? They grew up in the nineties but are not classed as 'being 90s kids'. I think 1987-1997 should be the 'untechnical' rule, but that's just me. 22-year-olds will demand I don't remember the 'best of it' and 12-year-olds will tell me I'm discriminating against them...meh.
If they completely suck up to the teacher then yes, I hate that, but what's wrong with being nice?
I usually end up with, 'She's such a - a - NNNGGHH (insert angry sound here)'.
What would be weirder, though, is imagining He Who Must Not Be Named walking through his front door, kicking off his shoes and sitting down to a nice cup of tea and Desperate Housewives after a long day of lighthearted destruction.
I don't know how to answer this as I can do all of them. Not very well, but I still know how to.
I took this all seriously and respectfully until called me a pathetic piddle hole, you win the prize for funniest insult!
I was only 4 or 5 when 9/11 happened? By using 9/11 to back up your argument, are you saying that only 90's kids (and older) can remember it? I hate to tell you, but at 5 my official childhood was well on its way and so, by being able to remember a '90s' event, does that make me a 90's kid?
I do get your point about being 'MORE 90s!!!' or 'LESS 90s!!!' than other kids though, I agree with you on that one.
I couldn't care less whether I was a '90's kid' (and to be honest I know I'm not) but I'm just confused at your logic.
Remember when there were wars and bombings, and everything that can happen now also happened back then? Most people will view their generation as 'the happiest generation' because generally children don't understand the problems that happen at the time.
I grew up in both the 90s and 00s and remember the Twin Towers collapsing - although I understand more now I didn't get the extent of what happened at 6 years old.
I'm not saying children can't be unhappy, but generally bad times aren't recognised as much when you're younger.
There are people in this world who don't find Johnny Depp attractive???
Fine. Fine. All the more for me.
Wait...some people have to live without steak pies?! D: I've always just assumed they were a universal food.
Or really ugly.
There's a little bit of hipster in all of us.
That's why I sometimes hate being a girl, but there are a lot of reasons why I wouldn't want to be a guy either. I would hate the obligation to be the 'tough guy' - usually it's the man who goes to investigate when there's a scary noise at night or a huge spider in the house! I don't think that there's a better or easier gender to be.
This is getting funnier and funnier.
Don't Speak? Now that one I DO know the words to, even if I don't remember the day it came out. Sure, I missed out on the atmosphere of the public when one great song came out, but I'll have plenty more in my time (which, agreeing with you again, wasn't the 90s. I don't think you understand I'm on your side with that). I never had any sob stories to be honest, I was just questioning your logic. Again you seem to have avoided my point by insulting a bored 16 year old (and by using homophobic comments, what a great way to back up your argument) Thanks!
But yes, I've got good memories of the '90s and amazing memories of the '00s and '10s too. Hopefully when I'm older I'll remember the good things that happened as well as the bad.
