    Are you serious? How is that even possible? Shes so cute. Sporty Spice in my opinion was the ugliest, she isn't ugly anymore though.

    Hard to say. I liked the 90s a lot. Of corse that was when most of my childhood took place. 1991 year I was born so don't remeber any there. I think I started remembering a lot when I was 3. Although I do remember some things from when I was only a year or 2 old but prob not as much. So 1995-1999 gets a high excitment vote. But unsure of my favey 90s year.

    1990. I consider that the peak of my favorite years of my childhood (88-92). Despite a few... events, things were pretty damn good. I finally got the Nintendo system for my 5th birthday, the Ninja Turtles and Ducktales movies came out, I started Kindergarten, I won a poster during Disneyland's 35th Anniversary, I got introduced to Marvel, the Disney Afternoon premiered, I read an actual Superman comic for the first time instead of just watching the cartoons or movies on TV, pretty much most if not all TV channels were still good... yeah, I'm going with 1990.

    '98 and '99 more or less sucked for me.

    90 was really fun I think it was like the 4th grade and it was the first time I kissed a girl.

    I'd have to say 1992 to 1994, and 1996. just have a lot of memories during those years. i was a big ninja turtle head and for some reason 92 sticks out in my head the most as far as fun and the amount of toys and stuff i had back in the day. 96 i guess is when i started developing more friends and stuff like that in grade school which was cool too got into more sports.

    1995ish was a kick arse year. Mainly because I think that's the year I went round half the hills in Edinburgh and was so not bothered by it. The 2000s have not been very good to me, so the nineties did it better for me.

    They only list "7" hills for my city, but there are actually probably over 50 of them in total if you listed them individually.

    I like the whole decade also, but the late 90's don't seem nearly old enough to be all that nostalgic over. I guess you could say I'm nostalgic over the my carefreeness back then, but not the pop culture yet.

    1990-1996 were the best years in the 90's for me, after that my life went down the crapper.

    Ahhh...the 90's. My decade. I have a little bit to say about each year so here it goes.

    1990-Finished preschool, was just discovering video games (Intellivision) and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

    1991-Kindergarten, Nickelodeon, Sega Genesis, and my first best friend (Keller) who lived in the house behind my house. We were "backyard neighbors". The Turtles still rock at this point.

    1992-Finished Kindergarten and started 1st grade. I saw Aladdin and Home Alone 2 in the movie theater. Dinosaurs was my favorite show. Still Fucking Loved the TMNT!!! WOOOOO!!!

    1993-Finished 1st grade and started 2nd grade (best school year ever). Awesome Birthday party for my twin sister and I at Malley's Chocolates in Fairview Park. I saw TMNT 3 and Super Mario Bros in the theater. Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog and Sonic the Hedgehog (SatAM) began airing on WUAB43 and ABC Kids. Sonic the Hedgehog began to slowly knock the TMNT off their alabaster pedestal. The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers didn't help either...LOL! Everybody was also reading Goosebumps books and looking at Magic Eye posters. I also remember going to a birthday party for a friend of mine at this putt-putt place called Goodtimes and playing Street Fighter II and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles in Time in the arcade.

    1994-Finished 2nd grade and started 3rd grade (worst school year ever, my teacher was such a bitch). I got a Sega Genesis for Christmas that year. I also started taking Hapkido (Korean self defense) classes (I went for two years and quit because it was getting expensive and I was losing interest. Subsequently, the dojang was shut down a year later because the owner and master of the dojang was convicted with possession of narcotics...oops!) Sonic at this point was now my hero and the Ninja Turtles were all but forgotten until the 80's and 90's resurgence in 2002 which began with "I Love the 80's" on VH1. The TMNT returned with a new show and toyline in 2003. A fourth movie (CGI) came out in 2007. I also joined the cub scouts that year.

    1995-Finished 3rd grade (thank god) and started 4th grade (better year and I had to re-learn fucking third grade math with a tutor before I could start learning 4th grade math). Kind of a sad year because both my grandpa and my great grandmother passed away in the same month (December) within a week or two of each other two weeks before Christmas. Still rocking the Sega Genesis, Nicktoons, and Goosebumps books. I started reading Archie's Sonic the Hedgehog comics. Sonic the Hedgehog (SatAM) was sadly cancelled after two seasons and two wonderful years. Luckily after its cancellation, USA network began syndicating the show but that only lasted for another two years and the show hasn't been broadcast in the U.S. ever since. Then, 12 years after the cancellation of Sonic SatAM and 10 years after its disappearance from network television, Shout! Factory, DiC Animation Studios, and Sega decided to release the entire series on DVD. I cried tears of joy in front of my computer and rushed out to Best Buy to pick up a copy and totally geek out with my favorite cartoon of all time. I also saw Toy Story in the theater and my family bought our first real computer, a Macintosh Performa. My ninja turtles and everything related to them at this point would be collecting dust under my bed as I continued to collect rings and stop Dr. Robotnik from taking over the world once again...

    1996-Finished fourth grade and began fifth grade. Middle School. I was now a preteen and my tastes for things were changing into that of a young adult. I still liked Sonic a ton, but a new and wonderful galaxy far, far, away was just on the horizon. It was also at this time that I began to notice girls for the wonderful creatures that they truly were. Who are the Ninja Turtles?

    1997-Finished fifth grade and began sixth grade. This was a year which would go down in infamy as the year I saw Star Wars for the first time. From the moment I saw the Rebel Blockade Runner, the Tantive IV race across the atmosphere of the planet Tatooine, evading the devastating assault of an Imperial Star Destroyer, I was indeed hooked...I've been a huge Star Wars fan/geek/nerd for ten years with no sign of stopping...ever!! Thank you George Lucas for creating such an amazing world of wonder and enchantment. Boba Fett is my favorite character and my favorite Star Wars film is The Empire Strikes Back. I still loved my Sega Genesis, but was I ever jealous of SNES owners who had the luxury of being able to play the "Super Star Wars" series of games.

    1998-Finished sixth grade and began seventh grade. I don't remember a whole lot about this year other than the fact that Science was my favorite subject in school because I had an awesome teacher (Mr. Caddey). My family finally "jumped on the super information highway" with America Online that year and we've always had the internet in my house ever since. By this time my Star Wars fandom was firmly planted and I had collected at the very least three dozen Star Wars action figures (my aunt thought it was and to this day still thinks its funny to call them "Star Wars dollies") and I had finally seen the other two original Star Wars films, The Empire Strike Back (YEAH!!!) and Return of the Jedi (Leia's Metal Bikini, anyone?).

    1999-Finished seventh grade and started eighth grade. What a great time to be a Star Wars fan. Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace came out in theaters in the spring and it was the first Star Wars film I ever saw in a theater. I thought it was awesome that Lucas wanted to finally finish his story and really give back to the fans who had been waiting for years to know the true history and origins of Darth Vader, C-3PO and R2-D2, Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and many others of the vivid cast of characters. As much as I liked Star Wars and still do, I developed my first crush on a girl in my class named Callie who I deemed the most beautiful thing to walk on the face of the earth. But we all know that's a big lie. Your first crush is always someone out of your league and someone you are too much of a pussy to talk to. I ended up being a real cretin to her because I was afraid to tell her how I really felt.

    So I wrote her all kinds of goofy and/or awkward and/or terrible anonymous notes and I would slip them in her locker. It didn't take long before one of her bitch tattletale friends tipped her off that I wrote these obsessive little notes in study hall. I admit I was a bit of a stalker. I would even ride my bike past her house hoping she would be out doing something in front of her house so I could stop and talk to her. But again, I had no testicles and I continued to pester her until the principal intervened and I got an office detention.

    After that, I lost all interest in the girl for about three or four years until...you know that saying "what goes around comes around"? Well, it was my junior year of high school and I was at home with my family hanging out/doing homework on like a Thursday night and suddenly the door bell rang. My mom went to the front door and answered it and spoke to a teenage girl whose car had broken down on her way home from her friend's. I kid you not when I tell you who I saw walking through my front door and into my living room. It was my Callie. The bane of my existence for my eighth grade and part of my freshman year of high school was standing in my living room using my phone to call her mom and explain what happened and where she was and to call herself a tow truck to come and get her car. I was utterly shocked.

    Of course it had been a few years since I had said anything to her or outright pestered her so we at least shared about ten minutes of awkward small talk until the tow truck came. After she left, I seriously had to slap myself a couple times and ask my mom, my aunt, and my sister over and over again for about an hour if the girl who was just in our house was indeed Miss Catherine Broomfield.

    It happened when I was seventeen and I remember it to this day as the time when God finally granted me the serenity and the closure to forgive a girl who I found that I deeply hated after she rejected me and broke my heart. It also gave me a feeling of worth and if Callie would ever need me as a person just once in my life that this moment would forever be it.

    "...and that is all I really have to say about that."--Forrest Gump (Tom Hanks) "Forrest Gump" (1994).
