    A true child of the '80's would know that it is "PSYCH"

    A true believer would know that it is a Big Mac (no K!)

    I grew up a little before the 80's, but I remember or know most of the things on your list. Since I was a little older, I would add in the following items:

    . You watched the intro to Miami Vice for the babes in the bikinis.
    . Heather Thomas and Heather Locklear --*deep sigh*--

    Hmm, well I'm barely in the 80's category, possibly not even counting, but I definitley know what most of that is.

    I learned world geography on my Atari 400 with the aforementioned tape deck loading the program for me.
    Oh dear.
    And the girl in my high school with the new white Rabbit on her sixteenth birthday with a vanity plate "OMIGOD" was the envy of positively everyone...

    edited to add: I still have that Atari 400 with all accesories. Playing Defender is still cool.

    You knew that Blair, Tuti, and the girls were just a spin-off from Diff'rent Strokes.
    You stayed up late to watch Love Boat then...if you were really lucky...you could watch the plane land on Fantasy Island.
    You remember when Chachi was just a little punk before his voice changed
    You remember when Tom Hanks was on Bosom Buddies

    I don't think she made much of a splash south of the border until Jagged Little Pill.
    It is a travesty that red blooded young Americans don't have access to these anymore. How else can figure out who is too dumb to live?!
    Both of them are Coreys, with an e. I know this well. The real test is how many movies can you name with the 2 Coreys in them? It's a fairly long list.

    :crafty: I STILL have the Heather Thomas poster (pink bikini), but don't know what happened to the good one (blue bikini)

    And...

    I've still got the Miami Vice soundtrack on tape even though my wife threw out my pastel "Vice" wardrobe! (A-La-Crockett) All I needed was a boat and a roommate like Elvis...
