7. Responding To Prank Callers
Prank calling was a huge deal back in the days, with teenagers and even some adults spending entire afternoons prank calling random people. Because there were no caller IDs on the old phones, people would almost always pick up. But many might not know that if they hit *69, they would be able to call back the same person that had just called. This meant that people could literally prank the prankster back, or just give them a piece of their mind.
8. How To Become The Richest Citizen In The City
SimCity was a huge thing back in the '90s, with people spending hours playing the game on their computers. For those who have no idea what SimCity is, a good way of picturing it is by thinking about Facebook's CityVille but in a much lower-tech version. The rich person hack was basically made of a code that would get you 50,000 extra Simoleans (the game's currency). The hack was shared by word of mouth, and only the pros knew about it.
9. Make Sure To Hide The Radio
While most people’s cars today have much more advanced radios, keeping the old school radio protected was extremely important back in the days. Robbers would very often steal car radios since they were so valuable. So people learned pretty fast that the best way to protect the radio from being stolen would be to either hide it somewhere in the car or take it to wherever the person went to instead of leaving it prone to being stolen.
10. Taking Care Of A Tamagotchi
The Tamagotchi was all the rage in the 90s, becoming a worldwide phenomenon for kids and teenagers. The little egg with a tiny screen and three buttons allowed the player to raise and take care of the cute pet, by cleaning it, feeding it and playing with it. A typical hack used by players was to click on A and C simultaneously to get a new egg when the Tamagotchi would fly off.
