Take me back to May 11th, 1992!

Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is May 11th, 1992 and it's a Monday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Taurus. The summer of 1992 has finally arrived. The weather has warmed up and the evenings are brighter than usual.

In America, the song Jump by Kriss Kross is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Please Don't Go by KWS is the number one hit song. George W. Bush Snr. is currently the President of the United States and the movie Basic Instinct 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. A civil war is currently 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 80s 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. In Europe, a war is continuing to rage on in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The riots that engulfed Los Angeles following the Rodney King verdict have recently come to an end. The riot began when four police officers accused of beating King back in 1991 were all found not guilty by a mostly-white jury, despite video evidence. Over 63 people have been left dead following the violence. Mexican-American singer Selena has just released her album "Entre A Mi Mundo". The album contains songs such as "Como la Flor". Rapper Sir Mix-a-Lot has just released his single "Baby Got Back". The song is currently causing controversy because of its overly-sexual lyrics about women.

Meanwhile, guitarist John Frusciante has decided to leave the Red Hot Chili Peppers. In soccer, Liverpool have just won the FA Cup final after defeating Sunderland 2-0. Goals from Michael Thomas and Ian Rush were enough to seal the deal. The final episode of the popular sitcom "The Golden Girls" has just been aired on television. The show had been running for nearly seven years. This follows the "The Cosby Show", which also came to an end last month.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Robert Reed, Anthony Perkins, Audrey Hepburn and Thurgood Marshall would all be still alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "MacGyver", "Star Trek: The Next Generation", "One Foot in the Grave" and "Rugrats". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Sonic the Hedgehog", "Streets of Rage", "F-16 Combat Pilot" and "Wolfenstein 3D".

Children and teenagers are currently watching television shows such as "Adventures of the Little Koala", "Count Duckula", "Clarissa Explains It All" and "Doug". If you're a kid or a teenager, then you're probably playing with toys such as My Little Pony (figures), Transformers, Jenga and Super Soaker (water gun).
