    Link: You might be an 80`s child if... - You know the profound meaning of ``Wax on, Wax off.`` You knew what Willis was ``talkin` `bout.``

    for you 80`s children, you`ll laugh your ass off.

    I wish I was born long ago to grow up in the 80`s. I always watch I love the 80`s (they`re making a third!) and I`m really into possibly the best decade of any century. Well, the 1780`s were pretty sexy.

    Yes, I am speaking through my ass, thank you.

    the day challanger blew up i was standing outside watching it go up with my 5th grade class.

    they totally forgot leg warmers and jelly shoes!

    ahhhh, good times, good times.

    We were supposed to watch the Challenger lift off in school (5th grade) but the teacher was out and the sub couldn`t work the tv. That would have been pretty traumatic if we did see it live.

    It`s weird how every generation has a major event happen and can remember exactly what they were doing when they heard about it. My father`s was the JFK assasination, mine was the Chanllenger disaster, and my kid`s is 9/11.

    "You know, back when..."

    I was born in 1979. I remember most of those all of those things but they did leave out some stuff for it to have been such a thourough list. I was in Kindergarden when the Challenger blew up. I remember watching it on the TV in the gym with my class and thinking that it was "supposed" to do that and wondering why the teacher got upset. I miss the 80`s though. They were rad. Heh.

    I was born in 88, but my uncle was born in 77 and I spent a lot of time with him growing up, so I got the 80s "culture" but I didn`t exactly live it.. except for a certain few on that list:
    You know the profound meaning of "Wax on, Wax off." Who doesn`t know the Karate Kid?
    You can remember watching Full House and Saved by the Bell for endless hours. Maybe not Saved by the Bell, but definately Full House.
    You know that another name for a keyboard is a "Synthesizer." Ok, maybe its not 80s for me, but being a music person, I do know that.
    You know where to go if you "wanna go where everybody knows your name." Hehe my mom watched Cheers all the time!
    You own any cassettes or albums. When I was 2 I knew how to work a record player.
    You actually thought "Dirty Dancing" was a REALLY good movie. My favorite movie when I was 2! I didn`t understand it, but loved it. It was a really good movie!
    I may not have grown up in the

    We can dance if we want to
    We can leave your friends behind
    `Cause your friends don`t dance and if they don`t dance
    Well they`re no friends of mine
    I say, we can go where we want to
    A place where they will never find
    And we can act like we come from out of this world
    Leave the real one far behind
    And we can dance

    this isn`t about being born in the eighties, you would have to be born in the mid to late seventies to appreciate this. bsr, i was in my sixth grade homeroom wearing green pants and lavender converse shoes when i heard about challenger. man, i`ve seen a few of these websites, and every one makes me ache for those simple days again.
