LA Riots (The 1992 Los Angeles riots were a series of riots and civil disturbances that occurred in Los Angeles County in April and May 1992. Unrest began in South Central Los Angeles on April 29, after a jury acquitted four officers of the Los Angeles Police Department charged with using excessive force in the arrest and beating of Rodney King. This incident had been videotaped and widely shown in television broadcasts)
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......................
Side note: Mike is one of 4 men who is rumored to be the ex-boyfriend mentioned in the Alanis Morrissette's song "You Oughta Know"

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)
After trialling daylight saving in Queensland for a total of three years, a referendum was held on 22 February 1992, with the question: "Are you in favour of daylight saving?"and was defeated with a 54.5% 'no' vote.
This referendum result displayed the same distinct trend that the task force had recognised—that public opinion on daylight saving in Queensland is geographically divided, with the 'no' vote strongest in the north and west regional districts, while the 'yes' vote was strongest in the state's metropolitan south-east
Queensland currently observes Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST) all year. DST is no longer in use. Clocks do not change in Queensland. The previous DST change in Queensland was on March 1, 1992.
Red River Valley Flood (was a major flood that occurred in April and May 1997 along the Red River of the North in Minnesota, North Dakota, and Southern Manitoba. It was the most severe flood of the river since 1826. The flood reached throughout the Red River Valley, affecting the cities of Fargo and Winnipeg, but none so greatly as Grand Forks and East Grand Forks, where floodwaters reached more than 3 miles inland. They inundated virtually everything in the twin communities. Total damages for the Red River region were US$3.5 billion. The flood was the result of abundant snowfall and extreme temperatures)

Following a two-day solo flight Soyuz TM-10 docked with the Mir space station on August 03, 1990
The Thurston High School shooting occurred on May 21, 1998, at Thurston High School in Springfield, Oregon. On May 20, 1998, 15-year-old Kipland Kinkel was suspended pending an expulsion hearing from Thurston High School in Springfield, Oregon, for being in possession of a loaded, stolen handgun. At home that afternoon, Kinkel was told by his father that he would be sent to military school if he did not improve his behavior. According to Kinkel's taped confession, at about 3:00 p.m., his father was seated at the kitchen counter drinking coffee. Kinkel retrieved his Ruger .22-caliber semi-automatic rifle from his bedroom and ammunition from his parents' bedroom. He then went to the kitchen and shot his father once in the back of the head, then dragged his body into the bathroom and covered it with a sheet. Kinkel further stated that his mother arrived home at about 6:30 p.m., and that he met her in the garage, told her he loved her, then shot her twice in the back of the head, three times in the face, and once in the heart. He then dragged her body across the floor and covered it with a sheet.
On May 21, Kinkel drove his mother's Ford Explorer to the high school. He wore a trench coat to hide the five weapons he carried: two hunting knives, his rifle, a 9x19mm Glock 19 pistol, and a .22-caliber Ruger MK II pistol. He was carrying 1,127 rounds of ammunition. Kinkel parked on North 61st Street, two blocks from the school, then jogged to the campus, entered the patio area and fired two shots, one fatally wounding Ben Walker and the other wounding Ryan Atteberry. He went to the cafeteria and, walking across it, fired the remaining 48 rounds from his rifle, wounding 24 students and fatally wounding 17-year-old Mikael Nickolauson. Kinkel fired a total of 50 rounds, 37 of which struck students, and killed two. 300 students were present during the event.
Comment: The more I read about this, all I could think of was this kid was "sick". But I guess that's true about most mass murderers.
