I didn't grow up in the 80s. It's interesting I don't need a long list with 66 points to find that out. Is that an 80s thing too?

That's a list full of wonders I never heard of. It's definatly worth reading.

You can imagine the things you do not know. For example : "You took lunch boxes to school...and traded Garbage Pailkids in the schoolyard"

What does that mean?

C.G.B. Spender
23-08-2006, 18:00:14
I have to agree I didn't read the house threads. Who's Japher? The guy with the burger avatar?

Oerdin
23-08-2006, 18:02:07

Oerdin

Japher
23-08-2006, 18:31:27

Hair crimping is a method of styling usually straight, long hair so that it becomes wavy, often in a sawtooth fashion. This is usually achieved by treating the hair with heat from a crimping iron or by braiding the hair then undoing the braids. Crimping peaked in populatiry during the mid 1980s.

I confess that I, briefly, had a mullet in 1984. It later got trimmed into a duck tail before my mother had the whole thing snipped off.

In Holland it's called a matje. Which is also german for herring.

Diss
24-08-2006, 21:23:47
I'm proud to say I've done almost none of that stuff in the 80's.

Which makes me question. What the fuck was I doing in the 80's?

Koshko
24-08-2006, 22:02:05
In the South it's called 'the usual'.
