Take me back to October 12th, 1992!

Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is October 12th, 1992, and it's a Monday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Libra. The summer is long gone. Temperatures have started to become much cooler and the evenings are beginning to get darker.

Fallen leaves have carpeted driveways, lawns, pathways and sidewalks and there's a fresh earthy scent in the ear. In America, the song End Of The Road by Boyz II Men is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Sleeping Satellite by Tasmin Archer is the number one hit song.

George W. Bush Snr. is currently the President of the United States, and the movie The Last of the Mohicans 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. In the United States, the campaign for the 1992 presidential election is in full swing, with Democratic Party nominee Bill Clinton taking on Republican incumbent George H. W. Bush. Meanwhile, the films "The Mighty Ducks" and "Under Siege" have just been released in movie theaters.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Audrey Hepburn, Thurgood Marshall, Andre the Giant and Bobby Moore would all be still alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Seinfeld", "Dinosaurs", "Home Improvement" and "Baywatch". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "The Simpsons: Bart vs. the Space Mutants", "Civilization", "Street Fighter II: The World Warrior" and "Mortal Kombat".

Children and teenagers are currently watching television shows such as "Married... with Children", "Dink, the Little Dinosaur", "Barney & Friends" and "The Addams Family". If you're a kid or a teenager, then you're probably playing with toys such as the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive, Lego Pirates, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) and Teen Talk Barbie.
