Take me back to March 2, 1993

Let's take a stroll down memory lane.

It is Tuesday, March 2, 1993. Anyone born today will have the star sign Pisces. Spring is creeping in, and the evenings are starting to get brighter.

In America, the song "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston is at the top of the singles charts, while "No Limit" by No Unlimited is the number-one song in the UK. Bill Clinton is the President of the United States, and the movie Groundhog Day 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. 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 is continuing to rage in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Meanwhile, in technology news, a relatively new storage format called the CD is beginning to outpace the regular cassette tape in music sales. The disc-based format gives listeners the ability to skip between songs instead of having to manually rewind and forward. A playing discs game called "Pogs" is currently spreading in popularity throughout the world.

It's 1993, so radio stations are being dominated by the likes of Meat Loaf, UB40, Snow, Haddaway, Whitney Houston, Take That, Janet Jackson and Mariah Carey. In Canada, Prime Minister Brian Mulroney has just announced his resignation. The world of soccer is paying tribute to English football legend Bobby Moore, who has recently passed away at the age of 51 from cancer.

In New York City, a recent terrorist bombing underneath the North Tower of the World Trade Center has left seven people dead, including an unborn baby. In Waco, Texas, a law enforcement siege has just begun. The siege started after a gunfight erupted when ATF agents attempted to serve a search warrant on a compound belonging the religious sect the Branch Davidians. Four government agents have been left dead following the incident and the FBI has since taken command of the operation. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Brandon Lee, Conway Twitty, Dražen Petrović, and Pat Nixon would all still be alive.

On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Knots Landing", "Roseanne", "Seinfeld", and "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past", "Ecco the Dolphin", "Kirby's Dream Land", and "Tecmo NBA Basketball". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "In Living Color", "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air", "Doug", and "Barney & Friends".
