Let's take a stroll down memory lane!

The date is February 10th, 1999 and it's a Wednesday. Anyone born today will have the star sign Aquarius. Valentine's Day is just around the corner.

In America, the song Baby One More Time by Britney Spears is on top of the singles charts. Over in the UK, You Don't Know Me by Armand van Helden is the number one hit song. Bill Clinton is currently the President of the United States and the movie Payback is at the top of the Box Office.

In the United Kingdom, Tony Blair is the current Prime Minister. Meanwhile, CDs have become the dominant format for music. People are buying CD players and the portable CD players such as the "Discman". As a result, the older cassette tape format is continuing to decline in sales. In fashion, bright and metallic colors are all the rage. A contrast with the darker "grunge" colors that were popular at the beginning of the 1990s. Women are wearing maxi skirts, bell bottoms, knee boots, crop tops, tube tops, slip dresses, maxi coats and platform shoes. Meanwhile, a lot of men have ditched their grunge and skater clothes in favor of sporting a more "dressy casual" look. Shorter hair on men is also becoming more popular.

US President Bill Clinton is being impeached for lying under oath and obstruction of justice. A relatively new form of communication called "text messaging" is continuing to explode in popularity. Although the technology has been around since the mid-1990s, it was only recently that cell providers started to allow users to send SMS messages to people on different networks. It's 1999, so radio stations are being dominated by the likes of Cher, TLC, Monica, Whitney Houston, Britney Spears, Jennifer Lopez, Santana and Ricky Martin.

If you were to travel back to this day, notable figures such as Big L, Stanley Kubrick, Joe DiMaggio and Dana Plato would all be still alive. On TV, people are watching popular shows such as "Mad About You", "Star Trek: Voyager", "Sabrina, the Teenage Witch" and "King of the Hill". Meanwhile, gamers are playing titles such as "Soulcalibur", "Metal Gear Solid", "Pokémon Red and Blue" and "Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus".

Kids and teenagers are watching TV shows such as "Arthur", "Smart Guy", "Recess" and "City Guys". If you're a kid or a teenager, then you're probably playing with toys such as the PlayStation (PS1), the Nintendo 64, Bop It and Spice Girls dolls.
