Take me back to July 12th, 1995!

Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is July 12th, 1995, and it's a Wednesday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Cancer. It's summer, so the temperatures are warmer and the evenings are longer than usual.

In America, the song Waterfalls by TLC is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, Boom Boom Boom by Outhere Brothers is the number one hit song. Bill Clinton is currently the President of the United States, and the movie Pocahontas is at the top of the Box Office.

In the United Kingdom, John Major is the current Prime Minister. A new form of communication called "text messaging" is continuing to grow in popularity. However, it can only be done if both the sender and the receiver are on the same cell network. Meanwhile, a global system called "the Internet" is also starting to take off. Each day, more and more people are learning how to send emails and browse "websites" on the World Wide Web by connecting their IBM computers to noisy dial-up modems.

In fashion, "grunge" clothing has declined in popularity and women are beginning to wear form-fitting outfits such as slip dresses and pencil skirts. Movies such as Clueless and The Craft have popularized the "sexy school girl" look. In Europe, a war is continuing to rage on in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Meanwhile, CDs have become the dominant format for music. People are buying CD players and portable CD players such as the "Discman". As a result, the older cassette tape format is continuing to decline in sales.

It's 1995, so radio stations are being dominated by the likes of Celine Dion, Everything but the Girl, Coolio, Oasis, Michael Jackson, Boyzone, Madonna, Montell Jordan, TLC and Mariah Carey. Former football player O.J. Simpson is currently being tried for the murder of his ex wife and her friend. If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Jerry Garcia, Mickey Mantle, Yitzhak Rabin and Stretch would all be still alive.

On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Only Fools and Horses", "Melrose Place", "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman" and "Babylon 5". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Mortal Kombat II", "The Jungle Book", "Warcraft: Orcs & Humans" and "Wario's Woods". Children and teenagers are currently watching television shows such as "Fireman Sam", "The Adventures of Pete & Pete", "The Secret World of Alex Mack" and "Dexter's Laboratory".

If you're a kid or a teenager, then you're probably playing with toys such as Sylvanian Families, Polly Pocket, Littlest Pet Shop and the Sega Saturn.
