WHY THE 80's WERE COOLER FOR BEING A TEENAGER THAN THE 90's - MTV actually played videos in the 80's. - There was only one kind of Nike tennis shoes (white with a red swoosh), and they didn't cost $125. - A comb in your back pocket is more practical and less painful than a ring through your nose. - In the 80's, playing video games actually meant going out to DO something. - In the 80's, when you were out partying, you didn't have to worry about your Mom calling you on your cell phone. - In the 80s, we didn't have to worry about getting our heads blown off at school - unless you put a whole pack of Pop Rocks in your mouth and drank a coke. - Debbie Gibson vs. Britney Spears. New Kids on the Block vs. N'Sync. New Edition vs. Hanson. Ok, that one's a draw. - In the early 80's, there were kids in your high school who could buy alcohol LEGALLY. - Feathered hair was easier to care for than dreadlocks. - In the 80's, you didn't have to worry about your pants falling down all the time. They were so tight we couldn't get them off!
