1990 was only 10 years ago so I don't think it counts as old school

u/sonicjesus Oct 03 '22

I can't believe I lived through every minute of the 90's and never thought of this phrase once.

The 90s were yesterday, I swear, and they were glorious.

u/TheIllustriousJabba Oct 02 '22

Genesis! Definitely the coolest console of the era, maybe ever.

u/Spacegod87 Oct 02 '22

I would have been a little younger than you in 1990, but I had the same haircut and wore those same jumpers and pants lol.

Why did our mothers only cut our hair like that in the 90s??

u/Ninnux Oct 02 '22

I had that chair / single mattress thing in grey.

u/Grand-Bid6471 Oct 02 '22

u/malikhacielo63 Oct 02 '22

That chair, for me is peak 1990s. God, the memories! Never more….

u/sonicjesus Oct 03 '22

In 20 years, no one is going to know what a bag chair is, or why there are two in every garage across the US, nor will they remember their grandpappy, the weird foam thing that existed in every basement across the US that no one remembers but everyone slept on at least one night in their life.
