What about the Oklahoma City bombing?

(Deleted comment)
...and the LA Riots, Rodney King trial.

How about... the fall of Saddam. Or the Laci/Scott Peterson hoopla. Dru Sjodin. Okay so those last two aren't exactly world-wide earth shattering, but they were a pretty big deal nonetheless.

Jon Benet Ramsey?

Um, the girl missing in Aruba.

Magic Johnson's AIDS revelation.

The Kobe trial.

Jeffrey Dahmer.

That's all I got. My brain hurts right now. Stupid meetings.

all of the michael jackson stuff.

You mean something like, oh I don't know, Iraq? lol I saw you were into S&M, couldn't help but leave a lil hello. The picture didn't hurt either. ^-^ A pleasure to meet you.

Ours was the first generation to experience...


  • The first home console video game systems (Atari Pong, Atari 2600, Intellivision, ColecoVision, NES...but the very first home console system was the Magnavox Odyssey)

  • The original theatrical release of the first Star Wars films, as well as the release of the special editions of the original trilogy in the 90's



On a cosmic level, we saw...


  • The impact of comet P/Shoemaker-Levy 9 on Jupiter

  • The first unmanned missions to Mars, Viking 1 and 2, Pathfinder, and now Spirit and Opportunity

  • Halley's Comet, which passes every 75-76 years. It last passed in 1986, and will not be seen again until the summer of 2061.



Pop culture wise, we had...


  • The Rubix Cube

  • The rise of cell phones

  • The birth of MTV

  • Johnny Carson leave the Tonight Show

  • The birth of reality TV


Wait a minute....what about the birth of the internet?!?! The whole reason we're able to do this in the first place!!! Not to mention, the infamous Dot Com Crash and the Y2K scare.


The most obvious...
