    Friendship bracelets were ties that couldn't be broken.

    You know all the words to "Ice Ice Baby".

    You wanted to be on "Jim'll Fix It".

    You can remember what Michael Jackson looked like before he had
    plastic surgery.

    You wore one of those slap-on wristbands at some point...or heaven
    forbid one of those T-shirts that changed colour with heat (Global
    Hypercolour).

    You had slouch socks and puff painted your own shirt at least once.

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

    You were upset when She-ra, Princess of Power and He-Man got
    cancelled.

    You can remember watching Saved by the Bell

    You remember Madonna in her cone stage.

    You knew "The Artist" when he was humbly called "Prince."

    You even wore fluorescent-neon clothing... (if you can call it
    clothing!)

    Not only did you wear fluorescent-neon clothing, but they were
    mismatched with fingerless gloves and toweling socks.

    You could break dance (ok, you wished you could)

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

    You remember M.C. Hammer.

    You can still sing the rap to "Fresh Prince of Bel Air"....

    You can remember when it was Jazzy Jeff and The fresh Prince and
    NOT just plain Will Smith!

    You own any cassettes.

    You carried your lunch to school in a Gremlins, ALF or ET lunchbox.

    You have ever pondered on why Smurfette was the ONLY female smurf.

    My Little Pony, Gummy Bears and Transformers are familiar to you.

    You ever had a Swatch Watch.

    You actually spent countless hours trying to perfect the "Care Bear
    stare."

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

    You spent hours in the basement building and re- building Lego
    cities.

    Big wheels and BMX's were the way to go.

    With your pink (or blue) portable tape player, you sang to Kylie and
    Jason!

    If you ever owned Polly Pocket or Micro Machines.

    If you ever made Ken fall in love with Barbie.

    You know what " Psyche" means.
    Partying "like it's 1999" seemed SO far away.

    You knew that Transformers were "more than meets the eye".

    You wore a banana clip at some point during your youth.

    You actually thought "Dirty Dancing" was a REALLY good film.

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

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

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

    You had to change into play clothes after school.

    You recorded songs off the radio with your boom box.

    Somehow you still know all the words to songs played on VH1's "Big
    80s"

    Your arm was full of rubber bracelets.

    You wore those wide, colourful shoelaces.

    You still don't like going in the sea because of Jaws.

    You remember Now compilations that had the pig on the front cover.

    You never questioned why the A-Team were always imprisoned in
    places that had sufficient tools to build an armoured tank.
