Gulf War Oil Spill (or the Persian Gulf oil spill, was one of the largest oil spills in history, resulting from the Gulf War in 1991. In January of 1991, Iraqi forces allegedly began dumping oil into the Persian Gulf to stop a U.S. coalition lead water landing on their shores. Despite quite high initial estimates, the spill likely was about 4,000,000 US barrels. Within the following months of the spill, most clean-up was targeted at recovering oil, and very little clean-up was done on Saudi Arabia’s highly-affected beaches. An initial study in 1993 found that the spill will not have long-term environmental consequences, but many studies since 1991 have concluded the opposite, claiming that the spill is responsible for environmental damage to coastline sediments and marine species and ecosystems. Considered an act of environmental terrorism, the spill was a heated political move that had implications for the larger Gulf War and temporarily damaged Kuwait and Saudi Arabia)

Heritage High School shooting: On May 20, 1999, a month to the day after the Columbine High School massacre, 15-year-old student Anthony "T.J." Solomon opened fire with a .22-caliber rifle on the Heritage campus in Conyers, Georgia, wounding six students. A 15-year-old girl was hospitalized in critical condition, and the other victims suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Solomon attempted suicide with a revolver but was talked into surrendering by an assistant principal. Solomon initially faced up to 351 years of prison if convicted of aggravated assault and other charges, but in 2000 he was found guilty but mentally ill, and was sentenced to 40 years in prison and 65 years of probation. A judge later reduced his sentence from 40 to 20 years. He was released to his mother's house on parole on July 26, 2016.

JAG (U.S. military acronym for Judge Advocate General) premiered on September 23, 1995 on NBC. It was an American legal drama television series with a U.S. Navy theme, created by Donald P. Bellisario. The series originally aired on NBC for one season from September 23, 1995, to May 22, 1996, and then on CBS for an additional nine seasons from January 3, 1997, to April 29, 2005. The first season was co-produced with NBC Productions (now Universal Television) and was originally perceived as a Top Gun meets A Few Good Men hybrid series. In the spring of 1996, NBC canceled the series after finishing 79th in the ratings, leaving one episode unaired. In December 1996, the rival network CBS picked up the series as a mid-season replacement and aired 15 new episodes as its second season. For several seasons, JAG climbed in the ratings and ultimately ran for nine additional seasons. In total, 227 episodes were produced over 10 seasons.  JAG furthermore spawned the hit series NCIS, which in turn led to spin-offs NCIS: Los Angeles and NCIS: New Orleans.

Margaret Thatcher resigned as United Kingdom's Prime Minister on November 22, 1990. She had been the Prime Minister since 1979. She was the longest-serving British prime minister of the 20th century and the first woman to hold that office. A Soviet journalist dubbed her the "Iron Lady", a nickname that became associated with her uncompromising politics and leadership style. She was replaced by John Major.

New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cup (The 1995 Stanley Cup Finals was the championship series of the National Hockey League's 1994–95 season, and the culmination of the 1995 Stanley Cup playoffs. It was contested by the Eastern Conference champion New Jersey Devils and the Western Conference champion Detroit Red Wings. This was the first of nine consecutive Finals to feature only American-based franchises. New Jersey was making the franchise's first appearance in the Finals, while Detroit returned to the Finals for the first time since 1966. The Devils swept the series four games to none to win their first Stanley Cup in franchise history in their twenty-first season, and they became the sixth team to earn a championship after joining the league in 1967 or later. It was the first of four consecutive sweeps in the finals)

A friend of mine, Mike Peluso, was on this team, in this picture he's in the middle of the back row. In the following video he can be seen crying on the bench. He was so emotional during the last few minutes of the game that he couldn't even go back out on the ice. I had been watching this game but then had to go to a street dance so I recorded the rest of the game, but the channel I had taped didn't have this perspective. This came from a Canadian channel (Mike had played for the Ottawa Senators, and was very popular there) which I did see a little bit of when I was at the street dance......................

Pamela Anderson/Tommy Lee sex tape (in 1995,their private sex tape was stolen from a safe in their home by a disgruntled contractor. According to Rolling Stone, it was an electrician named Rand Gauthier who stole the safe. He had been hired by the couple to work on the renovation of their Malibu mansion. Pam and Tommy felt his work was shoddy and they fired him and refused to pay him. When Rand Gauthier returned to collect his tools, Tommy pointed a shotgun at him. The electrician reacted by stealing the safe (which the couple didn’t realize) but at the time Gauthier was unaware it contained the X-rated video inside. It just so happened that Gauthier also worked in the porn industry at the time. Once he discovered the tape, it’s alleged he sold the video. It wasn’t until a few months later that Pam and Tommy realized their intimate video had been stolen. They filed a police report and hired a private investigator named Anthony Pellicano to find out what had happened. Not long afterwards, Tommy received a phone call from a company called Internet Entertainment Group who had bought the rights to the tape. They told him they were going to broadcast it on the internet. The couple’s lawyers advised them the best way to minimize the damage was to sign a contract allowing a one-time webcast, so long as people didn’t sell, copy, trade or rebroadcast it. They signed the contract – but couldn’t prevent the tape spreading like wildfire on the internet. Pam and Tommy were unable to prevent the tape’s online distribution and the couple were forced to sign away their copyright in 1997. Rolling Stone reports that the tape took two years to go viral and when it did, it made an estimated $98 million for the porn companies in less than 12 months through legitimate sales alone. Pamela, Tommy and Gauthier didn’t see a cent)
