I remember He-Man. I remember the Transformers. Hell, I even remember the Go-Bots. I still watch Robocop. I still play Pac-Man.

Come into my realm! You aren't afraid...are you?

He-Man and She-Ra would never hook up because He-man was soooo gay. C'mon, remember, when he was not He-Man he wore pink tights and some purple frilly pirate shirt. Then he got out his sword of power and hung out with guys with names like Fisto. soooo gay!

Where did you find this list? I mean, it's so random. This has crap that kids who were watching Strawberry Shortcake couldn't possibly be doing on it. Not to mention, some things were around when I was a kid in the 60s.

Yes, I'm going to be a bitch and break it down. The Yankees are losing to Kansas City of all teams at the moment, so I have nothing better to do...

1. Adults were doing that. They still do that.
2. Not kids who were watching crappy cartoons.
3. This show debuted in 1990.
4. Girls and women still do this, as it keeps your thighs from rubbing together and chafing. I never saw teenagers or young women do this in the 80s.
5. See, this is what I mean about the writer has no idea of what generation she's trying to describe.
6. No, but I still have such dolls Mattel made in the 60s, with floral scents and they still have their scent.
7. Blossom also debuted in 1990. Who the fuck wrote this list?
8. Parachute pants were around in the late 70s. Only fucktards wore them then, too.
9. Hurrah! The author finally named a show from the 80s! Never watched it. It was for little kids.
10. Hold on a fucking second. Tassles on handle bars and cards in spokes dates back to when my MOTHER was a child. My Mother, who's driver's license said she was born in 1929 and whose birth certificate said 1925. This is so every generation of child.
11. Duck Tales debuted in 1993. I know the words. So NOT 1980s.
12. Sidetails come and go. Wearing them the way idiot children did in the 80s though is something else.
13. The ONLY cartoon in the 1980s worth getting up for was "Mighty Mouse, The New Adventures" and some fucking televangelist got it pulled from the air, saying pollen Mighty Mouse inhaled from a flower was cocaine. Bastards. Come on already! They started editing Bugs Bunny in the 80s because the Moral Majority objected. Cartoons in the 80s sucked ass.
14. The cartoon was in the 80s. The movie was 1990.
15. Not many schools had computers in the 80s. Otherwise, you'd all know what DOS is.
16. Never heard of them.
17. Played that in the late 60s, early 70s.
18. Jordache was from the days of disco. Mid to late 70s. Anyone who wore that brand in the 80s got made fun of.
19. L.A. Gear? I thought the 80s were Members Only.
20. JEM was actually 1985! So the author got another right!
21. The first Ramona book, "Ramona The Pest" was published in 1968.
22. Heh. I saw that movie when it came out and 20 years later it had to be explained to me.
23. Only if you wanted to be JEM at the same time.
24. My crowd wore black.
25. By the time he had his 80s comeback, he had had lots of surgery. You have to go back to the 70s to remember what his original nose looked like.
26. Smurfs sucked. There were no good cartoons in the early 80s. But they explained why she existed in "Donnie Darko."
27. We had lunch boxes in the 60s. We traded Beatles cards.
28. I don't remember them. I remember the craze and then the banning of Klic-Klacs.

Hey, Derek Jeter just got his 2000th hit! Too bad they're losing to fucking Kansas City. Now back to the list...

29. Once again, wasn't that the early 90s? I just remember trying to bitchslap people who did that. Not to mention, people STILL do that.
30. Hypercolor just barely makes an 80s list. It was mostly the early 90s.
31. Once again, I have to ask what generation in the 80s she's talking about. She goes from children to teenagers to young adults. My favorite band in the mid 80s was The Dead Milkmen.
32. Not if you were old enough to know you don't fuck your brother. Not to mention, Atomic is right. He was gayer than Jim Bullock. Who was an 80s icon.
33. Friendship braclets started when I was a kid.
34. Adults didn't wear those uncomfortable damned things.
35. Nah, everyone watched the show though, just to make sure we didn't say the word of the day around any children.
36. That was more adults making fun of that. Kids went for screaming, "Where's the beef?"
37. Anyone born before the days of inline skates remembers roller rinks. They were dying from the 50s until the late 70s, when roller disco brought them back.
38. Slip and Slides were injuring children in the 60s too, which is why my mother wouldn't let me have one.

Hey, the Yankees finally took the lead!

39. I played with those in the 60s.
40. They still do those. Thank the Goddess they didn't do that in the 60s. Not that there was a McDonald's anywhere near me until the late 70s.
41. I've been shaking my head through this list and I was on drugs in the 80s. Conventional wisdom says a stoner shouldn't remember how wrong this list is.
42. As I said, cartoons in the 80s sucked ass.
43. Novelty songs like that made us wax poetic about Tiny Tim and Hurricane Smith.
44. Like, no one did that except on TV.
45. The only good thing about scrunch socks were no one cared if your knee socks fell down.
46. Huh?
47. A child watching Jem and thinking Barbie's band is hot wouldn't be able to lift an 80s boom box onto it's shoulder. Teenagers and young adults were the ones with boom boxes and if you tried to play Jem on them, they would have cut you.
48. I saw the first Gremlins movie. In the theater. There was no way you could even pay me to see the second one.
49. I prefered the Squishy Bears from Eek! The Cat, which I'm surprised isn't on the list, as it was on in the 90s.
50. Only girls under eight watched those.
51. *sigh* Doogie Houser premiered September, 1989. He's hardly 80s. Early 90s teenie bopper crap.
52. Even old people with no TVs had Alf crammed down their throat if they left the house. No one over 10 watched it.
53. New Kids On The Block were NEVER COOL! Unless you were a girl in the 8 to 10 age range. In which case, you couldn't lift that boom box on your shoulder.
54. Another show that's actually more 90s culture, as it debuted in late 1989.
55. OK, this is 80s culture to the extreme, but hell. It has nothing to do with growing up in the 80s. It was a fucking top 40 song. No one could escape it.
56. I'd rather die.
57. That was 1979.

Damn, the Royals are winning again, and it's the eighth inning. BASTARDS!

58. What child who was watching JEM had a mother who would allow them to wear short-short cut offs? Once again, a trend started in the 60s.
59. Business in the front, party in the back! We made fun of them then.
60. Once again, an adult trend, not a ritual of growing up.
61. Did anyone even sing that in the 80s who wasn't totally lame?
62. What rolled?
63. They still use those. My hair was always too thick to fit in one of those.
64. I think I mentioned this already.
65. Wasn't that off the air by the time the other shows on this list started? I mean, it did premiere in the 70s.
66. Knew how to use it? WTF? The song was called "Legs."
67. Hell fucking no!

Like, gag me with a spoon, why didn't they mention Valley Girls, the BIGGEST stupid girl trend in the 80s? Like, this is the grottiest list I've ever seen! Like, it totally misses Cabbage Patch Dolls, ET, Menudo, California Raisins, Doc Martens, Intelivision, Colecovision, Ghostbusters, Rubik's Cube, Transformers, Gitano... I could go on for hours.

Why do people wax reminescent about the 80s? Those of us old enough to know what was going on were stoned all the time! Reaganomics. Edwin Meese. The Moral Majority. Love Canal. Chernobyl. Zero Tolerence. Reagan Democrats. Valley Speak. Menudo. Jheri curl. Yuppies. Alexander Haig. James Watts. Iran-Contra. The Brat Pack. Abscam. Savings and Loan scandals. John Tower. Michael Milken. It was almost as corrupt as the current administration! It was the ME generation! No one gave a shit about anyone else! Then Reagan announces the government can confiscate our cars if we're caught with even a few grains of pot. I mean, they'd confiscate houses because a joint was passed around at a party. They confiscated a fishing boat that Vietnamese immigrants had just bought. They managed to scrape up three grains of pot from between the boards. Do you know how little that is? There are roughly 16 grains in a gram. There are 28 grams in an ounce! Three grains isn't even enough to smoke and they were accused of drug dealing under zero tolerence!

The 80s sucked.

Sorry to hijack the thread, but I HAD to get that out.
