I found this interesting. I don't pretend to know if all of it is accurate.

Not really sure about that safe sex thing. I've never had sex with a safe so have no idea if it is good or not.
Swell...nobody wants to be a scientist or an engineer.
1980's-We had the big comb in our back pocket and the music was very bad
Not all of it!
Yep...some of it was pretty bad. It sure didnt help that MTV came out and the only videos were British and German....
Don't remember much about the '80's. I was still hung over from the '60's.
I grew up in the 80s and there is alot of it that I sure wish I couldnt remember...
Wish I could help vet this for accuracy, but I'd have to wait at least 18 years for it to apply to me.
P.S. - The music is still pretty awful.
I dont miss the hair at all
My kid is pursuing a chemical engineering degree, he is a sophomore at WSU
Excellent! I hope he aspires to, and attains, Tau Beta Pi membership...and maybe a Master's (eh, Dad?). Heck of a good ticket to ride, I'd say. I'm sure you're quite proud of him, as I would be. Rick
I have one daughter with a degree in accounting, and one with her master's in health information management. Daughter #3 graduates in May from the U of MN with a journalism-public relations degree. We'll see how that works out.
Hehheh . . . not to discourage you, but I have a BS in Communications with the concentration in Journalism . . . and I'm a Public Education Officer at a Fire Department . . . although truth be told . . . probably pays more and has more of a future than a career in print journalism.
AAAhhhhh, the 80's. Break-dancing, skateboarding, big hair bands....
I had lots of fun in the 80's, not to mention the rocking mullet in the late 80's that I sported.....
I miss my teenage years, but there are some aspects of it I could do without remembering!
Mullet? Pics or it didn't happen!
I'll have to dig into the archives for that one......Yeah, I had a mullet.
Just curious did you have a rats tale too ? That was the worst hair style ever
Is this you Scotty?
Fortunately, NO! My parents wouldn't allow it, thank God! Speaking of a rat tail, saw a youngster the other week with one....he couldn't have been older than 8!
Gotta love central PA!
Mullet? Me? Nah...
Interesting that the percentage of hs dropouts has increased. About 1.3 Million per year nationwide. Wonder what they plan to do (or not do) for a living?
I had hair in the 80's as well. Different times- I even had a crucifix in that second pic (yessir- very different times )
Circa 1987 with my buddy Dave- sporting Corrosion of Conformity and The Cure shirts
I had hair then too, more like a fro. My hair was curly up until I was about 55.
