    Default Bangkok, oriental city, but the city don't know what the city is getting...

    If you could have one thing come back from the 80's to be "en vogue" what would it be?

    It would have to be the music (which has sort of happened anyway). It sure wouldn't be the hair or the clothes.

    Why in God's name would you want the music back? I Don't wanna hear the safety dance, whip it, or ANYTHING by Boy George or Wham (Gearge Michael) again. BTW, has anyone watched I love the 80's (90's also) with Boy George on it? WTF is up with the paint on his head?
    As for the clothes, I agree with you on that one. Someone better tell my dad's G/F that the 80's Aquanet hairdo is out (for all of you from Long Island/NY ) Her hair is so poofy, airport security checked it for contraband

You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."

    Used to do A LOT of roller skating in the early 80's. On roller skates, not these damned wheeled ice skates nowadays.

    If I could bring something back from tha 80s, what would it be...

    My 32" waistline would top the list, but somehow I don't think that's what you meant.

    My waistline, too, definitely. There's very little else worth salvaging from that decade.

    Pure coincindence - but as I'm typing this the Safety Dance is playing on the radio!

    I'd love to have "Men at Work" back again - the song "Down Under" basically became our national anthem during the 1980's when we were winning just about every sporting contest we entered. It was a great time.

    I was 12 when they ended, but to have the amount of fires then, not quite the 70's but enough to keep one happy!
