Take me back to October 18, 1991

Let's take a walk down memory lane.

It is Friday, October 18, 1991. Babies who are born today will have the star sign Libra. People have "that Friday feeling" and are excited for the weekend.

The summer is long gone. Temperatures have become much cooler, and the evenings are beginning to get darker. There is a fresh, earthy scent in the air, and fallen leaves have carpeted driveways, lawns, pathways, and sidewalks. In America, the song "Emotions" by Mariah Carey is at the top of the singles charts, while "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You" by Bryan Adams is the number-one song in the UK.

George W. Bush Snr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Other People's Money is at the top of the box office. John Major is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. Texting is not a thing yet. Instead, people are using landline phones and pagers. Furthermore, most people have never heard of the Internet.

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 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 and the KGB has been officially replaced by the SVR. In Texas, 23 people have been killed in a mass shooting at Luby's Cafeteria in Killeen.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Freddie Mercury, Benny Hill, Robert Reed, and Anthony Perkins would all still be alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "'Allo 'Allo!", "Night Court", "Sherlock Holmes", and "Full House". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Paperboy", "SimCity", "Railroad Tycoon", and "Battletoads".

Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Alvin and the Chipmunks", "Muppet Babies", "Married... with Children", and "The Adventures of Tintin". Popular toys at the moment include Mr Frosty, Polly Pocket, Yo-yo, and Fear Street books.
