When Twitter user @aklingus asked their followers for things that were huge in the '90s that would be impossible to explain to someone born after the 2000s, the response was overwhelming. People brought up pogs, slap bracelets, VHS tape rewinders, and more. What '90s things do you think would be toughest to answer for?
