Battle of the Decades – Third Round

That was quite embarrassing. In fact, the 1910s have tried to bribe me not to tell everyone that the 1960s got four times as many votes. The bribe was pretty good, so I think I’ll take it. That means that I can’t tell you guys who won. Sorry. But at least we have another battle to focus on. And I have a feeling that this one’s going to get rough.

 
1990s
Your proudest achievements:
I felt like cloning something, so I used a big dumb sheep. Then I put that old boring Cold War thing out of its misery. After that I threw Hubble out into space, and recorded hours and hours and hours of O.J. Simpson! Good times! And did I mention I invented Google?
Things you don’t like to talk about:
I accidentally started a bunch of riots in Los Angeles. My bad. But at least I handled those Wackos in Waco! And I’d rather not mention Columbine or how I lost Diana. Instead, let’s talk about how I impeached Clinton! That was fun.


1940s
Your proudest achievements:
I banged on a bunch of rocks until Poof!, I had Mount Rushmore. While hanging out amongst rocks I also found some scrolls with writing on them near the Dead Sea. The writing, however, was not done with a ballpoint pen, even though I invented it. Then I broke the sound barrier, suckered a bunch of countries into starting the United Nations, and really changed the world by inventing the Slinky.
Things you don’t like to talk about:
I deserve the blame for assassinating Gandhi. I also made quite a mess at Pearl Harbor, which was embarrassing enough, but then I used the Manhattan Project to make an even bigger mess by offloading a couple atomic bombs on two cities. It might just be simpler to say that I generally made quite a mess of the whole world after the biggest war the place has ever seen.



So which of these two is the greater decade? You tell us by casting your vote, for one or the other, in the comments section. On Saturday we’ll announce the winner (so vote before then), and then throw two other decades up against each other, for round four.

  1. The invention of the World Wide Web trumps the tragedy of World War II.

    Despite the onset of grunge music (argh!), I vote 1990s, please.

  2. 1990's. No doubt.

    My parents landed in LA the moment the riots broke out. It was their first vacation together since their honeymoon.

    I hear it was smashing.

  3. I am going to say the 1940's because I would give my right nutt to be in France after the Germans were kicked out. All those nice French ladies were very friendly back then so I have heard.

  5. Tough one for me....but 40's meant freedom and 90's meant a different kind of freedom....simply because it was before y2k vote for the 90's....besides 40's means I would have been uneducated, I dread that more than anything...

  6. The 30's lost so I've got to hold out hope for the 40's. Movies, music, style, all good. Okay, sure it had its downsides. You mentioned a few things that, granted, don't leave it in the best of lights. But against the 90's? Easy win.

  7. The 1940's would be great to witness history in the making. But the 90's were cool. And gas was under a buck. Remember THAT?

  10. I'm totally going with the 1940's this round! A much simpler time....and the 90's weren't very good to me, so that's that!

  12. I was basically a little kid in the 90's and there's nothing better than being a little kid. 90's has my vote.
