    This may have been posted before but a mate sent me it in an email this morning.


    You know you were a child of the 80s when.....


    # You never questioned why the A-Team were always imprisoned in places that had sufficient tools to build an armoured tank.
    <- you know, I never thought of that

    # Dungeons & Dragons was your favourite cartoon.

    # Your lunch times were spent perfecting swan dives and backspins.

    # You fell out with friends during heated arguments about the relative merits of Matt & Luke.

    # You owned, or wanted a "Frankie says..." T-shirt.

    # You have ever danced (or even worse cried) to Kylie & Jason.

    # Cerise pink, electric blue and banana yellow have ever featured in your wardrobe or make-up collection.

    # You ever did the top toggle of your coat up around your neck without having your arms in the sleeves, and knew you looked like a super-hero.

    # You remember when the A-Ha video was the pinnacle of modern technology, and you can still sing all the words.

    # Parachuting Action man was your favourite toy.

    # Your best party dress was either a ra-ra or puff-ball skirt.

    # You ever owned a thin, black leather tie (and were proud of it), or worse it was patterned like a piano.

    # You wondered why a popular kids TV programme told you to "Turn off your TV set and go and do some less boring instead".

    # You wanted to be either Nancy Drew or the Hardy Boys.

    # You ever said "It's my ball, and if I can't be Kevin Keegan I'm going home!"

    # You remember the aerobie scare.

    # You have ever po-goed or space-hopped.

    # You remember when Keith Chegwin & Maggie Philbin were the hottest romantic couple.

    # You wondered why your walkie-talkie didn't have the same range as those in the Red Hand Gang.

    # You were shocked by the controversial plot lines in Degrassi Junior High.

    # You tried to set up a "Famous Five" or "Secret Seven" gang with your school friends.

    # You tried to convince your Dad to fit a strip of red lights on the front of his Capri so it looked like KITT.

    # "Ca-vey Wa-vey!" means anything to you.

    # You ever had more than 10 sweets in a 10p mix-up.

    # Not only did you wear luminous clothing, but they were mismatched fingerless gloves and towelling socks.

    # You remember when Betamax was at the cutting edge of technology.

    # Conveyor belts regularly carried washing machines, deep-fat fryers and a cuddly toy.

    # You could have got away with it if it hadn't been for those meddling kids.

    # (Girls) You owned a pair of Pixie Boots, generally worn with leg warmers.

    # (Boys) You owned a pair of pale grey slip-ons, generally worn with white towelling socks.

    # Shiny grey flecked suits.

    # You rolled the sleeves of your suit jacket up

    # Ooh, you could crush a Grape!

    # You went to school with Pogo Patterson, Gripper Stebson, and Ro-land.

    # Fingermouse.

    # You were proud of your picture appearing in the Gallery.

    # You remember Look In magazine, and when it was only 20p

    # You wondered why you and your mates never encountered diamond thieves whilst out on your BMXs.

    # No 73?

    # You can remember what Quatro tasted like.

    # Your best mate had a soda stream at home and you were jealous
    <- lmfao I like that one

    Actually, that line of the theme tune to Why Don't You went like this:

    "Turn off your TV set and go out and do something less boring instead".

    I didn't wonder why, because the series was aimed at getting kids to go out and explore things - I just thought the sentence construction was particularly poor

    I was getting old even when I was seven.

    I plan on beating him to death with his kids. I'll use them as a bludgeon on his face. -

    We had a SodaStream "Deluxe"...

    It squirted straight into a glass, not that daft little bottle...




    Having said that, I missed out on having a superduper curlywurly plastic straw to suck the drink with

    Actually, it was neither.

    It was the awful grammar that ingrained itself on my brain, rather than the correct wordage.
