    There are a lot of things about living in the present that I like, but there's a whole lot that sucks...
    Van Halen, Slash, Axl, Metalica in the 80's vs Justin Bieber and Beyonce
    Comics in their prime such as Dice, Eddie Murphy now Jerry Seinfeld driving in cars getting coffee
    A lot of good, movies compared to the constant sequel, superhero movie now
    Howard Stern of the 80's compared to Wiggy Rothchild now
    smoking on an airplane and just walking up to the gate compared to today's comic trajedy
    being able to ride a bike as a kid without a helmet
    be able to walk around the block as a kid without a parent calling the cops for your own protection
    gas prices
    Merv Griffin, vs The Ellen show

    The list goes on and on...

    I love it when a plan comes together. Thankfully no one ever got killed but a lot of people stepped on trampolines after getting shot

    Something really bad happens away from home: find a pay phone vs cell phone

    I was watching a video of people in Central Park from the early 90's and everyone was holding hands and talking to each other, I recently was in the Park and everyone and their mother either is on a phone, holding a phone or on bluetooth/ipad/etc- it was really weird how quickly we changed.

    I can remember smoking in the waiting room at the doctor's office. Ashtrays and all.
    I can also remember it being legal to bust your kids' ass that was severely in need of it without being arrested for assault.
    Never saw a teacher with a wooden paddle get arrested.

    I also remember cells bars and barbed wire for little fuckers that "just didn't seem to get it". One for the guys. One for the girls.

    Of course when the political correctness bullshit came into play? Mom and Dad just gets to sign them out and take them home. Just like today.
    See how well that's been working?

    Leave the barbed wire and fences up and just change the signs out front. Rename them "medium security adult prisons".
    Psychobabble run amok.

    I would counter with The Clash, The Ramones, X, Joy Division, Bauhaus, The Smiths, The Damned, The Fall, The Jam, The Stranglers, The Cure, Siouxsie & The Banshees, Public Image, The dBs, Minor Threat, The Buzzcocks and Stiff Little Fingers in the 80s vs. Justin Bieber and Beyonce. Today it's not punk vs. metal, it's just rock vs. bland pop, period. And rock is losing.

    This Debbie Downer says that my knees remind me SEVERAL times daily that we didn't wear knee pads when skateboarding in the 80s. SEVERAL TIMES!

    Other than that? I LOVED THE EIGHTIES! Crazy costumes and all.
