Welp, we’ve officially reached the point where people who don’t remember the 90’s are full-on, legally emancipated, college-attending, family-starting adults. For someone like me who spent his childhood in the 90’s, this is a very strange feeling. But maybe I can use this moment to do some good! You see, people apparently have questions about what life was like in those most ancient of days, and, young though I was, I do remember a few things about human existence in the previous millennium.
So, let’s go through 10 questions about life in the 90’s, and try our best to answer them.
10. Got milk?
Answer: probably because of the iconic “got milk?” ad campaign which kicked off in 1993 with a commercial directed by – I’m not kidding – Michael Bay.
