So, the whole “Only 90’s kids” club has become such a meme of its own now that it’s experienced some backlash. And no, nobody’s more special than anyone else by virtue of their birthday. But let me just lay out a case for why us 90’s kids did, in fact, occupy an interesting and important moment in history:

β€’ We’re the last generation to remember a pre-internet era, and were there for its infancy
β€’ We’re the last generation to know what America was like before the world turned upside down in 2001
β€’ We brought an everlasting and irreversible curse upon humanity by buying all those Furbies

If that isn’t at least a little noteworthy, I don’t know what is. Enjoy these 13 other interesting tidbits from a decade long ago…

Now that you’re feeling all warm and fuzzy, I should probably warn you to acclimate yourself back into the current year slowly. Cause it’s…quite a shift.

What else should be on this list?
