    hehehe....good post GG. However, I must inform you that a child of the 70's passed it with flying colors. I must confess however that as a parent of a child of the 90's that I got it all from osmosis.
    It isn't paranoia when you KNOW they're out to get you...

    You know- they say video games affect children... This seems to be a big argument, esp with violent viedo games... Well we played PacMan, and if this were true then we would all be running around dark rooms, munching magic pills, and listening to strange techno-music ;-)

    I love being a child of the 80's/90's !!!
    yeah, I\'m gonna need that by friday...

    yes...yes...yes... but the "long-haired heavy metal bands" are still in style... or maybe they're just back in style, I lose track

    ummm most of that stuff is late 80's and came from the "you might be an 80's child" list. Pretty funny stuff though because I remember almost all of it.

    /sigh I'm getting old.

    OMG...hahahahahahahaha....I don't know whether to be relieved that I'm not the only one, or horrified because so many of us did it that it made the list!
