Take me back to September 24th, 1991!

Let's take a walk down memory lane.

The date is September 24th, 1991, and it's a Tuesday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Libra. Schools and colleges are starting again and Autumn has officially arrived. As a result, temperatures are beginning to cool and trees are starting to shed their leaves.

The earthy smells of fall have started to fill the air. In America, the song I Adore Mi Amor by Color Me Badd is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, (Everything I Do) I Do It For You by Bryan Adams is the number one hit song.

George W. Bush Snr. is currently the President of the United States, and the movie Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare 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.

A rock subgenre called "Grunge" is starting to rise in popularity. In Europe, the Soviet Union is continuing to dissolve. Rock band Guns N' Roses have just released their albums "Use Your Illusion I" and "Use Your Illusion II". Meanwhile, a new sitcom called "Home Improvement", starring Tim Allen, has just been aired for the first time. A new operating system call Linux has been released on the Internet.

In the Alps, a naturally-preserved mummy called "Otzi the Iceman" has just been discovered by two German tourists. In Iraq, a possible disarmament crisis is brewing. IAEA inspectors are currently being prevented from leaving a facility with files detailing Iraq's nuclear weapons program. In California, the Huntington Library has just made the Dead Sea Scrolls available to the public for the first time.

RAF pilot Jackie Mann has been released by his Lebanese kidnappers after spending more than two years in captivity. 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 "Last of the Summer Wine", "Sherlock Holmes", "Quantum Leap" and "One Foot in the Grave".

Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Paperboy", "SimCity", "Sonic the Hedgehog" and "F-Zero". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Alvin and the Chipmunks", "Muppet Babies", "Full House" and "Beetlejuice". If you're a kid or a teenager, then you're probably playing with toys such as Transformers, Jenga, Koosh Ball and the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES).
