You knew who Ben Stein was before you could win his money, "Bueller?"

You carried your lunch to school in a Gremlins, ET, Dukes of Hazzard, Knight Rider, Strawberry Shortcake or A-Team lunch box.

You have ever pondered why Smurfette was the ONLY female Smurf.

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

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

You wore your Izod shirt with the collar up.

You had a Swatch Watch with the Swatch Guard.

Your arm was full of rubber bracelets.

You have ever said, "Gag me with a spoon."

You have ever wondered what happened to Saturday morning cartoons.

You had to get up to change the channel.

You can still sing 1 to 12 from the Pinball machine on Sesame Street.

You remember the first time you went into a video store to rent a movie.

You wore those wide, colorful shoelaces.

Quiet Riot'* "Come on feel the noise" was the best song - ever.
