Take me back to April 30, 1992

Let's go back to the nineties.

It is Thursday, April 30, 1992. Babies who are born today will have the star sign Taurus. The summer of 1992 is drawing closer and temperatures have started to rise.

In America, the song "Jump" by Kriss Kross is at the top of the singles charts, while "Deeply Dippy" by Right Said Fred is the number-one song in the UK. George W. Bush Snr. is the President of the United States, and the movie Sleepwalkers 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. A civil war is taking place in the African country of Rwanda. It's 1992, so radio stations are being dominated by the likes of Kris Kross, Boyz II Men, Whitney Houston, Sir Mix-a-Lot, Right Said Fred, Snap! and Nirvana.

In fashion, many of the trends from the late 1980s are still in vogue. Colored tights, denim overalls, leotards, flannel shirts, and shoulder pads are all fashionable at the moment. Grunge fashion has also become mainstream, popularizing band t-shirts, ripped jeans, mom jeans, and Doc Martens. A war has broken out in Bosnia and Herzegovina following the shelling of Sarajevo by Serb forces. In celebrity news, singer David Bowie has married Somali fashion model Iman in Switzerland.

In soccer, Leeds United have just won the Football League First Division after beating Sheffield United 3–2. Their title win was confirmed after challengers Manchester United lost 2-0 to Liverpool. The city of Los Angeles is engulfed in riots following the recent Rodney King verdict. Four police officers accused of beating King in 1991 have all been found not guilty by a mostly white jury, despite video evidence. In response, residents in South LA are looting stores, burning buildings, and attacking passersby. In television, the final episode of "The Cosby Show" has just been aired.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Robert Reed, Anthony Perkins, Chuck Connors, and Audrey Hepburn would all still be alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Last of the Summer Wine", "'Allo 'Allo!", "Matlock", and "Home Improvement". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "The Simpsons: Bart vs. the Space Mutants", "Sonic the Hedgehog", "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project", and "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past".

Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Chip 'n' Dale's Rescue Rangers", "Saved by the Bell", "Rosie and Jim", and "Clarissa Explains It All". Popular toys at the moment include the Game Boy, the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive, Fear Street books, and Pogs / Milkcaps.
