The Year 1996

  • A bomb explodes at the Olympic Park in Atlanta, Georgia. One person is killed, but no one is ever charged in the crime.
  • Also in the US, "The Unabomber" Theodore Kaczynski is arrested. Kaczynski killed three people and injured many more with mail bombs.

The Year 1997

  • Dolly the cloned sheep is born at the Roslin Institute in Scotland. She is the first mammal cloned from an adult cell.
  • The movie Titanic, featuring Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet, is released. It goes on to become the highest grossing movie of all time.

The Year 1998

  • Geri Halliwell (AKA Ginger Spice) leaves the Spice Girls to become Solo Spice.
  • The Price it Right airs its 5,000th episode.

The Year 1999

  • Two students go on a shooting spree at Columbine High School in Colorado. They kill 13 people and then themselves.
  • While the world parties like it's 1999 (if you read that and thought, "Huh?" ask your 'rents about a dude named Prince), computer geeks freak out about the "Y2K Bug." It turns out that the world didn't end. Go figure.

Music Hits of the 1990s

  • The Rachel 'do - hair today, gone tomorrow.
  • As if! There was nothing cool about this boring era.
