106. You'd stay up late to watch The Hitchhiker on HBO, because of the dirty bits.

107. You wondered who those old guys were in the Run-D.M.C. "Walk This Way" video.

108. You thought Clint Eastwood would one day be president.

109. You were 99.9% sure Sue Ellen shot J.R.

110. If you remember when you heard that drinking soda and eating Pop Rocks would make your stomach asplode

5. You know whose phone number is 867-5309.



This song is on Club 977 internet radio right now. I guess another sign that you're a child of the '80 might be that you listen to Club 977 at work. :)

111. You know what "Psych" means.

112. Once, while spending hours in the arcade, you actually lined up quarters
on the top panel of the game -- to "reserve" your spot.

113. You had no problems thinking members of the Miami police department drove Lamborghinis.

If you have iTunes installed, it's under 70s/80s pop in the radio section. I'm sure you can listen with other software, but that's what I use. Heard Pac-Man Fever about an hour ago. ;D

(in my best Sloth voice) indicates it as Goonies... but that was clearly taken from the intro to the show "The Electric Company" from PBS (which ironically featured Morgan Freeman and Rita Moreno, who did the opening phrase).....

Classic PBS TV... gotta love it
