"George Soros became instantly famous on September 22, 1992, when, believing the Pound sterling was overvalued, he speculated heavily against it. The Bank of England was forced to withdraw the currency out of the European Exchange Rate Mechanism, and Soros earned an estimated US$1 billion in the process. He was dubbed "the man who broke the Bank of England."" --Sholem Stein


"I'll take your brain to another dimension, pay close attention." --"Out of Space " (1992)


"The rebirth of sociobiology [happened] in 1992 under a new name—evolutionary psychology. I date the rebirth to 1992 because that is when an influential volume appeared with the provocative title The Adapted Mind: Evolutionary Psychology and the Generation of Culture. [...] Morality (particularly cooperation and cheating) has been an important area of research in evolutionary psychology since the beginning."--The Righteous Mind (2012) by Jonathan Haidt


"Daniel Johnston's cult status was propelled when Nirvana's Kurt Cobain wore a T-shirt at the 1992 MTV Video Music Awards that featured artwork from Johnston's 1983 album Hi, How Are You, a T-shirt that music journalist Everett True had given him." --Sholem Stein
