Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is March 6th, 1991, and it's a Wednesday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Pisces. Spring has started to creep in and the days are beginning to get longer.

In America, the song Someday by Mariah Carey is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Should I Stay Or Should I Go by The Clash is the number one hit song. George W. Bush Snr. is currently the President of the United States, and the movie Sleeping with the Enemy is at the top of the Box Office.

In the United Kingdom, John Major is the current Prime Minister. Texting is not a thing yet. Instead, people are using landline phones and pagers. Furthermore, the vast majority of people still have no idea what "the Internet" is. In fashion, many of the trends from the late 80s are still popular. Colored tights, denim overalls, leotards, flannel shirts and shoulder pads are all fashionable at the moment.

A civil war is currently taking place in the African country of Rwanda. It's 1991, so the airwaves are being dominated by artists such as Bryan Adams, Michael Jackson, Roxette, R.E.M., Color Me Badd and Paula Abdul. James Brown has just been granted early release from prison. The RnB singer was imprisoned two years ago following a high-speed car chase.

In the Middle East, Operation Desert storm has recently come to an end after a short ground war between US-led forces and the Iraq military. President Bush has declared that the country of Kuwait has been liberated. Meanwhile, an anti-Saddam uprising has started in the Iraqi city of Basra. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Miles Davis, Freddie Mercury, Robert Reed and Anthony Perkins would all be still alive.

On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Magnum, P.I.", "MacGyver", "Matlock" and "Twin Peaks". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Super Mario Land", "DuckTales", "Railroad Tycoon" and "Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "The Real Ghostbusters", "Married... with Children", "Adventures of the Little Koala" and "Doogie Howser, M.D.".
