I like the "Remembering the 90's" thread so much, I was hoping to expand to another decade - my personal favorite - the 80's! For those of us who remember it, tell us your memories - those you loved, or maybe even hated. I'll start off with a couple things I loved, though the list is exhaustive.
1980, the decade started off with the movie Empire Strikes Back! Absolutely awesome movie!
Alternative rock - Depeche Mode, R.E.M.
1981 - the Space Shuttle - rocks! 1986 - the Challenger explosion - tragedy!
Reagan - loved AND hated him.
80's thick, puffy, crinkly diapers - God please bring them back!
And of course, the Personal Computer explosion and Video games!
So, let the nostalgia begin and tell us what you loved/hated about the 80's.
