You don't remember Snarf? What's wrong with the world?!?
THUNDERCATS! uh...do NOT look up "snarf" under google images, it's not pretty
Dude, I seriously hope you weren't looking up Snarf in order to work him into your furry fantasies :-p

I was actually gonna just post a picture as a reply but the results were scary...very scary
Ahhhhh... I thought they were making a reference to Pinky & the Brain, but the question didn't quite make sense.

Eh, I liked the Thundercats, but I didn't particularly like that character. Oh well.
I suspect that if ever I were to breakdance, it would result in a cataclysmic event which would wipe out all life as we know it. Either that or I'd want it to be wiped out after suffering that indignity.

For the record, I actually had one of the jackets which I wore all of like a week before it started falling apart (it was a knock off after all) hence saving me from poor judgement by shoddy workmanship.
You wore a ponytail on the side of your head.

dude, I do that NOW! My hair wasn't LONG ENOUGH in the 80s :P

oh, also...

"Miss MARY MACK MACK, all dressed in BLACK BLACK BLACK"

yeah, but I think I learned that from my mom. that is so not 80s. or rather it was around in the 80s but it is originally much older than that.

And hypercolor t-shirts... my boyfriend had one of those frosh year of college and that was 94. They may have started in the 80s but they were still pretty big in the 90s.

50 yard dash... part of gym classes since at least my parents time.

Whoever made this list had their head in the sand.

hmm, I was going to accuse the Rubik's Cube of being older also, but http://www.rubiks.com/cubehistory.html shows it to be firmly in the 80s... interesting.

Re: oh, also...

Yeah, this list has quite a few weird entries and it's also got a lot of apparent gender bias(particularly the fashion questions).

If I wasn't so much of a slacker, I'd come up with a better list ;)
I only do that if I'm really drunk when I'm tieing it back :-p
