I am trying to find which 90's were the best 90's. Here is my current list of cool things from the 90's so far (I try keeping it to things I know) :

1990's : Batman, adventure games, the playstation, the Super NES, Rocko's Modern Life, Goosebumps, Animorphs, the Lion King, Terminator 2, Half Life, Chumbawumba, Pretty fly for a white guy
1890's : Sherlock Holmes, Dracula, The Time Machine, War of the Worlds, The Invisible Man, The Jungle Book, zionism, "Hello! Ma Baby", "Stars and Stripes forever", "The Man Who Broke The Bank At Monte Carlo", L'Arroseur Arrosé, Dans cent ans (it's some book I own from 1892 making predictions for 1992, double 90's), Le Brenn et sa part de butin
1790's : La Carmagnole, La Marseillaise (great year for classic French songs), the metric system, several books from the Marquis de Sade, Mozart's Requiem
1690's : The steam engine, the Salem Witch Trials, Les Contes de ma Mère l'Oye, Fables de La Fontaine (the last book was in 1694, quite lucky!)
1590's : Romeo and Juliet, Gabrielle d'Estrées (great nipples)
1490's : The Last Supper, Lady with an Ermine, America, my ancestors leaving Spain
1390's : The Canterbury Tales
1290's-590apostrophes : not much
490's : The Ambrosian Iliad
390's : The Kama-Sutra, the graffito of Esmet-Akhom, the biblical canon
290's :
190's :
90's : Jason and the Argonauts, the Gospel of John, The Book of Revelation, Jewish Antiquities, Histories,
-90's :
-190's : The Rosetta Stone
-290's :
-390's : Brennus pillage Rome, and he will be immortalized for this in the 1890apostrophes (SEE ABOVE)
-490's :
-590's : The Babylonian Captivity
-690's :
-790's : The Odyssey (maybe)

It becomes pretty hard to find dated things to the decade before that so I will stop there (although the Trojan war is supposed to be in the -1190's).

Best 90apostrophes so far : 1990's, 1890's, 1790's, 90's

Izambri: you have a typo there. "-290s" should be "-290's".

Thank you, Rad. I changed it in the last update, but in the other way: all "0000's" are now "0000s"
