We didn't have as much crime back then, there wasn't a drug problem out there, at least that I was aware of. People were nicer to one another, and I don't think there was a social media site. around.....And I was working full time.

Let's see. The 80's in America.
Cocaine, especially in freebase "crack" form, was all the rage.

There was a huge panic about Satanic cults and ritual abuse that had no real factual basis. Just a bunch of scripted "confessions" that made waves on TV talk shows.

Yuppies were considered cool very briefly.

Aquanet was flying off store shelves.

I used to love using a can of AquaNet as my own personal flame thrower.

It's this cheap super hairspray in giant aerosol cans.

I forgot perms. People's moms were all about stinking to high hell like a chemical dump with their perms. They looked awful and the smell could drive a dog off a meat wagon.

You spray it in the chamber and a grill igniter sets it of. It's alcohol and butane.

It was needed for thick curly hair. I've had this my whole life. If you wanted that Farrah Fawcet look you used juice cans to set it and tons of that hairspray. My hair misses those days. It still wants to be big😊

I was born in 89 so I missed the 80's and I can't remember too much from the 90's either.

I was too young to remember much about the 80's, but since I grew up in small town South Africa it was probably quite boring. The 90's was a bit better... cheap alcohol, cheap cigarettes, wearing anything black got you branded as rebellious and/or Satanic (plus lots and lots of teenage girls who thought being branded rebellious and/or Satanic was the height of hotness). Oh yes, and punk rock unbanned. It was fun.

I used to have a lot more optimism back then. I thought the future was going to be great. Things could only get better and better (medicine, technology, space travel, flying cars of course, etc..). Things don't seem to feel that way anymore though.

Now I know the future sucks and I just want to go back.

I wish the 1980's never happened. That's when I made all of my mistakes.

Sorry my teen angst was in full drive in the eighties. Very few fond memories. Music, ****, drugs. Just the basics.

The 80s were good to me, I bought five video shops and was making lots of money, I was having about five or six holidays and was always changing my cars...then went to Portugal and bought a bar/restaurant and spent three happy years there..come back in 88 and started a small building company...no drugs but lots of booze
