LOL, a friend of mine sent me that, and more than half the things on there I said "I DID/REMEMBER THAT!"... especially the Rubics Cube one... I so did that!

Mike, no, it wasn't an 80's show, but it's a show that people who were born in the 80's would have watched. I only watched it a few times, myself. I was more of a play outside kind of kid than a sit in front of the TV kind of kid.

Oh me too..............almost all of those, except "slap bracelets" no clue there. I DO remember those jelly bracelets, though, and you could fit, what, a hundred or so on one arm? :D

I don't know about the Doogie Houser thing, though. I went to High School with him (He graduated the year before me) and was in several Drama productions with him- nice guy, but I never got the whole "oh he's SO cute thing."

Ironically enough, the year behind me (no I'm not naming years!) graduated Freddy Prinz Jr., who was more of a 90's star.

I just went to the dogs, myself. :wink:

I remember slap/snap bracelets, lotsa rumors going on around the time Walgreens was getting sued about the glue that held them together being poisonous, but the real reason for coming off the market was the risk of slit wrists in kids when the covers came off the metal n they smack down a sharp edge on their wrists. They came in all the typical funky 80s colors and designs :)

The 80's are easy for me to remember. I ended one career and started another. I retired from the military and started with the police. Now the 60's on the other hand, whewww, there do seem to be a few blank spots there.

Of all the people on this forum I would consider for advice regarding experience on spoofing drug tests, you would have been about...bottom of the list. Funny what you learn.

Hippie. Was bitework more fun when you were flying your freak flag? Was your hippie dog's first work around "truffle" detection out there naked in the Redwoods?

Google search is awesome. Ladies and gentleman of the forum, I present to you Officer David Frost, circa 1968, with his narc dog Tim von Learyburg, call sign "Sgt. Pepper"....great dog I hear, played the sitar.
