Subject: 80's terms, slang, etc.

Written By: RojoP on 11/06/04 at 10:15 pm

OK - new topic.

I know that it has been a while (some longer than others), but can you remember some of the terms, slang, etc. you used in everyday talk back in the 80's?  It would be funny to read posts on how we conversed with each other back in the day.

Examples:

That's Fresh
Oh my God
et.

Some 80s slang is still in use.  Like "chill out" and "awesome". 

I guess they are like "cool" from the 1950s, some slang never dies out.
