Guys, it has begun. Those of us who were born in the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s are officially old now. At least that's what teenagers on the internet are trying to make us believe. The belief that you were somehow born into the wrong generation is probably older than the world itself, nevertheless, it still feels quite strange whenever you hear someone say that they wish they were born in the 1990s. That wasn't that long time ago, guys! My folks and I still have a dial-up phone lying around somewhere and a full box of cassettes, too.

Scroll down below to see the full list of youngsters pleading their love for the 1990s. And remember - we were all teenagers once and were probably also dreaming of the good old 'simpler' times when going through our parents' old photos.

Well we did learn life skills and how to do things for ourselves, though I was born at the end of the 80's, but close enough. On the otherhand I love having everything at my finger tips

I just wish I was born in the 90s where nothing mattered, everyone grilled out, kids played in the road, people weren’t sensitive, and everyone got along

Well that is when the over sensitive culture started which is why South Park and other shows came out to counter that. And how sweet you think we all got along, I mean the race riots in New York, Chicago, LA. I former head of the KKK almost getting elected governor of a state, homosexuality was a criminal offense in a number of states. Yup we all got along just fine

This one makes me sad. One thing teenagers today don't have are teenage-centric movies, like Breakfast Club or Fast Times. Everything is violence/action and super heroes.

Wouldn't y'all want to be a teenager in the '90's? Not born in '90's. I was in high school '93-'97. I enjoyed the music of nirvana and pearl jam AS IT WAS HAPPENING. I remember where I was when it was announced cobain died.
