On June 11, 1993, Isla Nubla came into our vision as palentology pro John Hammond flew over his amusement park of cloned dinosaurs in a helicopter. It was a brilliant spectacle of animatronics and pioneering CG technology. Now, almost twenty years later, Jurassic Park roared it's way into theaters in an evolved 3D format, raking in $18 million.

JP has the esteemed honor of being the only movie to make me throw up because was dumb enough to sit on a toilet during a T-Rex attack. I learned this weekend that the magic of Jurassic Park still resonates, as does my hatred of Milkybars.

However, looking back to the simpler times of 1993 makes me realize that not everything was tainted by a fear of scaly lizards the size of a house. Before we get completely involved with Jurassic World in 2014, we thought we'd take a look back at what else we loved in 1993 besides .

Rad! Here we go:

What's your favorite thing about 1993 besides Jurassic Park? Was it learning how to finally pull off saying "sike" or "talk to the hand" correctly? Or were you busy with your pre-ripped jeans and Ninja Turtle t-shirts? Let us also know if you're still doing these things when the new movie stampedes into theaters next year. We'll definitely be pausing the Snoop Doggy Dogg and bringing the Clear Coke.
