Tori Scott from saved by the bell was forgotten by Slater, Lisa Turtle and Zack when Kelly and Jessie returned. Where did she go? Did she ever exist? If so was it in a parallel dimension.

The promos for the final season of the show featured Kelly, Jessie, and Tori together, despite the fact that the actresses never actually appear in an episode together. Rather, the network alternated between "Kelly and Jessie" and "Tori" episodes each week.

The only thing I can be certain of is of the things from the 1990s Tori was forgotten but did she really exist???

Zizzowop: wotthefark: steve_s: They forgot grunge rock, or as Beavis and Butthead called it, "grudge rock".

No they didn't. It's a double negative. They forgot to forget therefore some of the best albums ever made came out of Seattle from 91-95. If you think "grunge" sucks then you didn't get it or were born too late.

Think of all that great rock from the early 2000s I mean Creed sold more albums than Jimi Hendrix so they were cool right???

Led Zeppelin, REM, and Depeche Mode have never had a number one single. Celine Dion's "Falling Into You" sold more copies than any AIC, Nirvana, or Pearl Jam record so she must be great and she's Canadian.

They probably should have included "Buffcoat and Beaver".

So...where is Pearl Jam now?


They are touring as a group called Creed.

I was about the come in here and defend goatees. Glad you beat me to it. Trimmed in well, they are classy and suitable for all occasions.

I could have a beard in days, but I don't like them. No ZZ top for me.


I don't know what's funnier, the fatass who thinks people can't see his double chin from the side or the other dipshiat that thinks goatees are classy.

1. CD-RW was a horrible, horrible format.
2. Still around.
3. I'm pretty sure I had relatives who did this to their hair. Or my female cousin, who had it longer, still curly, with a rat-tail. Seriously.
4. Abomination!
5. The author apparently (a) has no fingernails, and (b) is showing his ignorance off nicely with this one.
6. The product we know as Fun Dip is 70 farking years old, it only started getting called Fun Dip in 1989.
7. Goatees? You really think those were a solely 90's thing???
8. As a non-gamer, I have no idea what the fark the owl's doing.
9. Ahhh, the things we did to those discs.
10. Useful, but less so than rechargeables.
11. Author is again showing his age.
12. I assume that's something from Pokemon, which, again, IS STILL AROUND.
13. You're mocking Rugrats, when you could have easily gone with AARGH! Real Monsters?
14. DEFINITELY had relatives with this cut.
15. Again, non-gamer.
16. Honestly? Don't remember anyone who owned one in the 90s.
17. That moment was wiped once Scar fell to the hyenas.
18. I must geek out and say that that clip was of a not-so-good connection. Good connections didn't make it half as far into the noises.
19. Bratz didn't exist until 2001. FAIL.
20. VHS started in the 80s.
21. The UK ones started in the 80s. America didn't get them until 1998, and only got three in the 90s.
22. Still around.
23. Another very-late 90s thing. (Because really, we didn't get or care about how much of a dumbass Durst was until at least summer of '99, when "Nookie" hit.)

So to sum up, a quarter of the list is stuff that's still going strong, at least a quarter is stuff that predates the 90s, a quarter is stuff that had very little to do with *just* the 90s, and the Bratz FAIL. Just doing any little bit of research could've saved him from such a fail. And yet he has a job.

letrole: rhiannon: Wow I feel sorry for the 40s and 80s in your silly little list there. They barely got a mention other than being lovingly enveloped by their counterparts. Why do you hate them so much?

I don't think you understand how this works. The 40s and the 80s are enlarged. This means I love them and made them bigger.

This is why I feed your mum pie every time I shag her.

Because I love her.


And I thank you because I truly wish her happiness at her advanced age.
But I've been looking at your silly little list a bit closer and just realized that the 70s only received 4 years to call its own. That's simply unfair. A lot of good things came out of the 70s. Your parents, for example. Ok maybe that wasn't good, but other stuff was.

I know I'll get shiat for this, but even after watching Ren & Stimpy older and stoned, I still didn't get the appeal. It's crassness without any humor. Do I need harder drugs?


That's the problem :) I was 19 when I first saw R&S. My boyfriend at the time loved
the series, so we'd drink a couple beers, spark one up and laugh our asses off.

I do NOT recommend R&S on acid, though. Noooooooooo.

Main thing I remember from the 90s was a bunch of 20 somethings really pissed off at the economy which also happened to be the healthiest in decades. Also 'Reality Bites' was seriously touted as a generation defining movie. Oh, and advertisers didn't know what the hell to do about the 'meh' culture and tried way too hard to show just how much they cared that you don't care.
