Ready for a walk down memory lane?

It is Wednesday, July 12, 1995. Anyone born today will have the star sign Cancer. It is "Hump Day", so many are beginning to think about the weekend ahead.

The summer of 1995 is in full swing. The weather is warm, and the evenings are brighter than usual. Most schools and colleges are now finished until August or September. In America, the song "Waterfalls" by TLC is at the top of the singles charts, while "Boom Boom Boom" by Outhere Brothers is the number-one song in the UK. Bill Clinton is the President of the United States, and the movie Pocahontas is at the top of the box office.

John Major is the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom. A new form of communication called "text messaging" is starting to become more widespread. 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 fallen out of favor, 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 schoolgirl" look. In Europe, a war is continuing to rage in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The CD is quickly becoming the dominant format for music, and people are buying portable players such as the "Discman". Consequently, sales of cassette tapes are continuing to decline.

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 still be alive.

On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Only Fools and Horses", "Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman", "Walker, Texas Ranger", and "Star Trek: Voyager". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Mortal Kombat II", "RoboCop Versus The Terminator", "The Jungle Book", and "Full Throttle". Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Biker Mice from Mars", "The Nanny", "Gargoyles", and "Johnny Bravo".

Popular toys at the moment include Micro Machines, the Sega Genesis / Mega Drive, Casio Secret Sender 6000, and Sky Dancers.
