Plus Nintendo was WAAAY better than Atari.
      what you say is true...I merely meant that Regan was one of the better presidents of the 1900's...he did alot and made some friends along the way...Atari ruled the early 80's by the way...

      and I'm thinking of starting a Trivial Pursuit party on the first Friday of every month...want in?

          The 10s is the worst. As if the absurity and death of World War I wasn't enough, it helped set up the greater amount of death and destruction in later decades.

            Miracle On Ice was the best moment in the 20th Century (other than the birth of Henrik Zetterberg) so therefore the 1980's go down as the best decade.

                I know that's from the Boondocks, but ironically, this just came to me:

                      20s, 50s, and 90s ruled. 30s, 70s, 80s, and 2000s sucked. 1960s kinda sucked with the war and civil rights and all, but for me I think they couldn't have been that bad considering all the best music came from the 60s.

                      but economically the 20s, 50s, and 90s were the best. musically the 50s, 60s, and 70s were the best and the 80s and 90s and 2000s the worst. I do like a lot of 90s music though.

                          As far as I'm concerned the 1900's, 1950's, and 1970's were all the best for various reasons.

                          My least favorite decades are the 1920's, 1930's, and 1990's.

                            The 20's were unarguably the most prosperous years in American History.

                            The 30's were unarguably the worst. Great Depression, Start of WWII, The "New Deal".

                              Actually the 20s being the most prosperous is VERY arguable. The 90s saw the longest stretch of economic development, the 50s was the start of the movement from an industrial society to more of a technical/services based society. And, as you said, in American history, you're discounting the 1870s-1890s which saw American surpass Great Britain and Germany as the major industrialized power in the world.

                              And you cite the New Deal as a negative...why?

                                Not sure how one could really consider the 70's the best. There was so much wrong with the 70's with the Watergate Scandal, the aftermath of the Vietnam War, the Oil Crisis, severe economic issues, the beginning of the Iran hostage situation, the Cold War was still very prominent, etc. Entertainment may have hit a peak in the 1970's though if that's what you mean.
