20 Things That Turned 20 In 2013

You ready to feel old? Like, really old? These things turned 20 this past year.

Jurassic Park


I don’t think I slept for two weeks after seeing this movie. Spielberg changed the game forever when he introduced CGI to Hollywood.

Beanie Babies


Gotta catch ’em all, or whatever.

NHL ’94


The cornerstone to any worthwhile Sega Genesis or SNES game collection.

The Intel Pentium Processor


Do you have a computer in your home or office? You can thank this thing.

Microsoft Windows


Corporate America wouldn’t be Corporate America without Microsoft Windows.

The Internet

The Internet

The internet had been around for a while prior to 1993, but it wasn’t made available to the public until that year.

The Fugitive


Tommy Lee Jones + Harrison Ford + awesome script = Hollywood gold.

“I Will Always Love You”

I guarantee you this was played at every wedding reception from 1993-1997.

The X Files


Gillian Anderson brought redheads back into the mainstream and David Duchovny lived like it was still the ’80s.



This major treaty eliminated trade tariffs between the US, Mexico and Canada. It still stands as one of the most powerful, and controversial trade agreements in the world.

MJ’s First Retirement


We got Space Jam out of it, so it was a win-win for everyone.

“Standing Outside The Fire”

Garth Brooks was country music in the ’90s.

Mortal Kombat II


Nothing like ripping out your opponent’s spinal column to help you unwind after a long day at school.

Cool Runnings


Everything Disney touched in the ’90s turned to gold, including a movie about Jamaican bobsledders.

Ariana Grande


Singer, actress, total babe. Triple threat.

Bill Clinton’s Presidency


By far the most entertaining and controversial presidency since Nixon began this year and taught us all that blowies do not count as “sexual relations.”

The Waco Raids


A 51-day standoff between a religious group known as Branch Davidians and the FBI and ATF ended with a shootout and the total destruction of the compound. In total, four federal agents and six Branch members were killed.

Buckingham Palace Being Open To The Public


This was a huge deal in Great Britain, but was met with a “BFD” everywhere else.

Mrs. Doubtfire


This movie broke the mold and went places that no one has dared go since.

Sleepless In Seattle


Hanks and Ryan owned the romantic comedy scene in the ’90s. Absolutely owned it. Proposals at the top of the Empire State Building increased 600% after this movie came out.

What do I love? I love happy hour, a good golf tan, and getting moderately drunk during dinner.
