1999

Seeing his first impeachment trial, 1999 marked a tumultuous year in the Clinton presidency. At the time, he, and other world leaders, presided over a world population of just under 6 billion people.

1999

The most popular baby names were Jacob and Emily. While we don’t yet know who else might prove to be a world-changer, these 12-months saw the birth of American actress, Tatum McCann; the Prince of Denmark, Nikolai; and the Prince of Bulgaria, Umberto. Meanwhile the world was forced to mourn the passing of Stanley Kubrick, Mario Puzo, John Kennedy Junior, Allen Funt, and Wilt Chamberlain.

Rowling managed another year at the top of the best-selling book list when she published Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. In contrast, on the silver screen, modern classics like American Beauty, The Sixth Sense, Fight Club, and The Matrix saw their red-carpet premiere. Keep on skimming to discover how this year changed world currency and forever alerted the world to a new meal-time danger.

The year 1999 bore witnesses to many firsts including the first DOW closing above 11,000, the first Eminem album, the first female Prime Minister of New Zealand, and the first warning about the dangers of genetically-modified food. In these twelve months, inventors gifted the world with the Blackberry, the wildly-popular Furby, and the first digital television recorder. In addition, a whole new generation got to see The Last Supper as it ended 22-years of restoration.

For all the music downloaders of the world however, the charges laid against Napster may have proven inconvenient. Three main events occurred on the global stage: The Kosovo war ended on June 9th. Yeltsin resigned his post to Vladimir Putin. Australia voted to keep the UK monarch as their head of state.

Now you know, if you’ve ever gotten into a fistfight over a Furby, that you can blame 1999.
