3. You can sing the rap to the "Fresh Prince of Belair" ..and can do
the "Carlton".


or the Will head roll!

8. Two words: Hammer.Pants=20

Got those laying around somewhere.

10. You had plastic streamers on your handle bars...

those things used to piss me off. they were so annoying and stringy.

11. You can sing the entire theme song to "Duck Tales" (Woo ooh!)

Man... why don't they make theme songs like that anymore? :(

14. You saw the original "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" on the big screen...and still know the turtles names.

Still know the Turtles names??? HA! That's for beginners. Try naming your pet birds after them.

15. You got super-excited when it was Oregon Trail day in computer class
at school.


... and then getting an old school Macintosh Performa with Oregon Trail on it.

19. L.A. Gear....need I say more?

It's all about the light-up shoes.

22. You know the profound meaning of "WAX ON, WAX OFF"

Karate Kid. Also, it was in TMNT II the movie.

23. You wanted to be a Goonie.

I still don't get why people liked that show. To me it was just a regular show but my close friend from elementary school loved the thing. I suppose I would have loved it too if Nintendo didn't come out with the CRAPPIEST VIDEO GAME IN THE WORLD based on the movie! :lol:

25.You can remember what Michael Jackson looked like before his nose =
fell off and his cheeks shifted.


He will always be the man... inside at least.

29. You still get the urge to say "NOT" after every sentence.

Yet another speech norm that I wasn't too impressed by. Some people squeezed it for all it was worth though.

33. You thought your childhood friends would never leave because you
exchanged handmade friendship bracelets.


:(

35. After you saw Pee-Wee's Big Adventure you kept saying "I know you are, But what am I?"

Again... others said it... I got annoyed... but that one was not so bad.

36. You remember "I've fallen and I can't get up"

Where did that come from? It rings a bell but I can't remember from where.

37. You remember going to the skating rink before there were inline
skates.


Oh god... the horror... the HORROR!!!! Those things sucked. Thank God for blades. Oh what I would give to slap on a pair of Bauer in-line skates and then go straight back in time "Back to the Future style" and skate circles around everybody with those things!..... what a dream that would be....

38. You ever got seriously injured on a Slip and Slide.

Never got injured but those things were awesome.

39. You have ever played with a Skip-It.

:lol: :lol: :lol:.... those things....

40. You had or attended a birthday party at McDonald's.

Yep... McDonald's parties....

41. You've gone through this nodding your head in agreement.

Done one better :)

43. "Don't worry, be happy"

That was the overall theme of the decade... and sadly enough the world we're trying to get back to now.

44. You wore like, EIGHT pairs of socks over tights with high top
Reebok's.


WTF??? Did I like TOTALLY miss something here?

51. You remember Alf, the lil furry brown alien from Melmac.

:(

52. You remember New Kids on the Block when they were cool...and don't
even flinch when people refer to them as "NKOTB".


:)

53. You knew all the characters names and their life stories on "Saved
By The Bell," The ORIGINAL class.


First girl that made me aware of the fact that females are insanely beautiful = Tiffany Amber-Theissen (a.k.a. Kelly Kapowski)

59. You had a mullet!

let's call it a MINI-mullet, and only for a short short time.

60. You still sing "We are the World"

Pre-school song.

65. You had big hair and you knew how to use it.

Still have love the full headed look.... will never give in to advanced shaving technologies.

it was fun. i was laughing cause it was so true. so very, very, very true about everything.

and vega,
i did the sock thing, i don't think it was 8 pairs, but it was a few. when i was little i had on about 3 pairs of socks, rolled my pants and had my hair in a pony tail on the side and I thought I was cool (i realize now, well before now, but anyways I WAS A BIG NERD

i had a slip n' slide (and yes i got hurt), i still have my purple popples (sad i know), i watched the pound puppies and had the little stuffed dogs, i read all the books of The Baby Sitters Club (i like mary anne and claudia) i did think doogie howser was hot, care bear stare (need i say more?) i could go on about every single one, it's horrible and funny at the same time.

first off, I did like both the movie and the videogame, and Nintendo didnt actually make it, Konami did! Just imagining Chunk doing the "truffle Shuffle" makes me wanna laugh!!

Yeah that's right, it was Konami. Ok, maybe it wasn't the crappiest game in the world. It was DECENT at most and ok if you're the puzzle game type, but I didn't feel that it stayed that true to the movie. It was pretty much as loyal to the original source of the theme as much as TMNT 1 was loyal to its theme. I didn't really like the overall feel of the game too much. The music was very uninspiring and the game quickly became repetitive and drudgerous. Also, what's the deal with Goonies 2 in the title? Was the idea that the game was supposed to be a follow up of the movie? And if so, then why didn't they just make a game based on the movie and leave a follow up for later?
