The Internet is in love with the 90s. There is nothing it loves more than nostalgic lists about things 90s kids remember from their 90s childhood. Well, there's a lot of seriously dumb sh*t creeping onto these lists that weren't at all from the 90s. Allow me to give some examples:
Phones with coil cords have been around since 1960
Every phone to ever have a cord like this got bent in this exact way. Considering the fact that phones with these cords came out in 1960 and cordless phones came out in 1994, statistically speaking, almost everyone who has ever been irritated by a bent phone cord wasn't a 90s kid.
