17 things that wildly infuriated us in the 90s
During the boring lessons, we twisted improvised spinners from a pencil and a ruler. The latter sometimes flew away in an unknown direction, which could not be ignored by the teacher.
Everyone in the class had such a nasty child who first brought all sorts of interesting things to school, and everyone was jealous of him. For example, felt-tip pens, which smelled deliciously, each one being different. We begged parents to buy the same, but often they were adamant.
The electronic encyclopedia on the disk is not Wikipedia yet, but already something. In Russia, it was the “Great Encyclopedia of Cyril and Methodius”, and in the USA - Encarta. This disk was all passed to each other for a couple of days, and if you missed your turn, you had to be tight.
We could not call anyone without our address book. Or even a notebook.
A private telephone conversations with a friend looked like this.
Even toys in those days tested us for strength. The spring of the link (then, of course, we did not know that it was called that way) was constantly confused. And even if it was possible to unravel this hellish tangle, there were creases on the spring, which spoiled the whole look.
Barbie dolls were all good, but their hair literally a month later turned into some kind of washcloth. And some specimens still had such a misfortune: they had only to dissolve their hair, as baldness showed.
And the boys were dreaming about such albums.
Problem number 11
Sometimes, for no reason at all, such small tragedies happened with cassettes. Or more if the cassette was loved.
In such cases, there was nothing left but to make a masterpiece of street art out of a cassette film. Adults did not like our "creativity", and we often received from them for it.
We had just a bunch of cassettes. And we were too lazy to put the cassette in her own box each time. We paid for it later when we had to shovel all our supplies in search of the right film.
We recorded movies on a VCR and were as focused as possible. We knew that it would be possible to watch the movie later, and now the most important thing is not to miss the beginning and end of advertising.
For some reason, we didn’t care much that all our ugly photos would be the first to be seen by a completely stranger - the developer from the photo salon.
We had to become a surgeon for our computer mouse when it stopped working.
To get online, we had to wait for someone to finish talking on a home phone. And how about the fact that one file was downloaded half an hour? And how about the fact that the Internet, we did not have a good half of childhood?
