    Yeah, early 80s is a bit beyond my memory, and we didn't even have power at the house until 89 or so.......

    Open propane fridge, remove frozen burrito.
    Place in microwave
    Go outside, downstairs, down more stairs and around the corner to the Genny shed.
    Start Genny
    Go back upstairs and cook burrito in microwave.
    Go back downstairs and shut off Genny.
    Go back upstairs and eat burrito.

    Ahh the simple life.

    OTOH, Dad still runs off of batteries for about 60 percent of the house, so when power goes out, he still has lights....

    Now... this is a story all about how
    my life got flipped, turned upside down,
    and I'd like to take a minute, just sit right there
    I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel-Air

    In... West Philidelphia born and raised
    on the playground is where I spent most of my days,
    chillin' out, maxin', relaxin', all cool
    and all shooting some b-ball outside the school

    When a couple of guys said "we're up to no good"
    started making trouble in my neighborhood,
    I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
    she said "you're movin' with your uncle and auntie in Bel-Air"

    I whistled for a cab and when it came near
    the license plate said "fresh" and had dice in the mirror,
    if anything I could say this cab was rare
    but I though now forget it, yo home to Bel-Air

    I pulled up to a house about seven or eight
    and I yelled to the cabby "yo home, smell ya later,"
    I looked at my kingdom, I was finally there
    to settle my throne as the prince of Bel-Air


    PSYCH!!

    Never played Magic Vs. Bird, but what about Spy Vs. Spy and Marble Madness (or the Russian version of Tetris, which I had)?

    Leonardo, Donnatelo, Michaelangelo and Rafael (don't forget Splinter, Krang, Beebop and Rocksteady from the cartoon)

    Didn't one of the chicks on Blossom go on to be a porn star or some s***?

    Smurfette was a slut

    And the clincher: I have seasons 1 and 2 of Alf on DVD

    Oh and did I mention, "SHOT THRU THE HEART! And you're to blame darlin' you give love, a BAD NAME!"

    A funny story while on the topic of Hammer Pants, there's a black guy I work with on day shift here who likes to goof around alot, so I downloaded 2 Legit 2 Quit to my iPod and as a joke, played it on the PA at work, and without even missing a beat, he goes into the 2 Legit dance and even did the "Hammer sidestep" while he was dancing. Probably the funniest thing any of us had seen here yet.

    Edit: You left out any and all references to Airwolf. You let Stringfellow Hawke down...

    LOL actually the original list I got had about 60 items on it. I deleted most that were girl references (like owning a pair of jelly shoes:rolleyes: ) cause I figured most of the members wouldn't relate:D

    <edit: for Airwolf references you must go to TUT, covered there already!>

    I'm not sure I like that list - it makes it seem like Hammer pants are out of style, and I just don't think that's true.
