You Know You Grew Up In The 80's When...

You know the profound meaning of "Wax on, Wax off."

You know that another name for a keyboard is a "Synthesizer".

You know who Mr. T is.

You ever wore fluorescent, neon clothing.

You could breakdance, or wish you could.

You wanted to be The Hulk for Halloween.

You Believed that "By the power of Greyskull, you HAD the power!"

Partying "like it's 1999" seemed SO far away.

You thought that Transformers were more than meets the eye.

You knew that knowing is half the battle.

You can remember Michael Jackson when he was black.

You remember the garbage pail kids, and owned some.

You knew what Willis was "talkin' 'bout."

You knew "Rut row raggy" and "Zoinks."

"The Breakfast Club" become an instant classic.

You remember when ATARI was a state of the art video game system.

You owned only cassettes.

You were led to believe that in the year 2000 we'd all be living on the moon.

Poltergeist freaked you out.

You carried your lunch to school in a Gremlins, ET, Dukes of Hazzard, Knight Rider, Strawberry Shortcake or A-Team lunch box.

You have ever pondered why Smurfette was the ONLY female Smurf.

You know what leg warmers are and probably had a pair.

You wore biker shorts underneath a short skirt and felt stylish.

You had a Swatch Watch with the Swatch Guard.

Your Legos collection started with the free sets in a Happy Meal.

You remember when Happy Meals came in a box, not a paper bag.

You remember when Saturday Night Live was funny.

You had Wonder Woman or Superman underpants.

You had to come in the house when it got dark.

You had to change into play clothes after school.

You owned or knew somebody with a Commodore 64.

You hated Scrappy Doo.

You recorded songs off the radio.

You wish you had a light saber. (still do!)

Somehow you still know all the words to the songs

Your arm was full of rubber bracelets.

You had to get up to change the channel.

You thought the "Thriller" video was pretty cool.

You remember the first time you went into a video store to rent a movie and had a choice of VHS or BETAMAX!

You wore those wide, colorful shoelaces.

Quiet Riot's "Come on feel the noise" was the best song - ever.

You still cannot go in to the water because of that damn movie - Jaws.

You remember life before 4x4 and People carriers.
