    Aw man... girls had crimped hair (myself included) and wore slap bracelets and those tights with the elastic band that went around your foot I believe they were called stirrup pants.... The boys had those hideous rat tails on the back of their head.

    Oh, I also had a talkgirl like the talk boy from homealone. I may or may not have worn Punky Brewster hightops... that was my elementary school nickname for a while cause the brown hair and freckles.

    If a person has ugly thoughts, it begins to show on the face. And when that person has ugly thoughts every day, every week, every year, the face gets uglier and uglier until you can hardly bear to look at it.

    A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts it will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.

    Truth is available only to those who have the courage to question whatever they think they know.

    Mark 7:34 “Ephphatha,” that is, “Be opened.”

This website tracks what they're selling for and most are just $2 to $10. The very rare ones are as much as $350..

    Yeah that's the minotaur one. Lots of good childhood memories with that game. And once or twice we did play through all the levels. Now I enjoy the nostalgia, but I get bored after about 20 levels.

    That, and the music were the two biggest things I despised about the 80's... That was just a terrible decade all around. If you were to dress like that today, people would think you were homeless or on drugs.

    Ah yes, the Bit Wars I believe the Angry Video Game Nerd did a video on it. And he declared nintendo the winner. Which now I'd have to agree with. But Sega was revolutionary with there clam shell cases which are still used today. Nintendo just had those little plastic guards for the bottoms. I remember those in highschool. I graduated about ten years ago. Actually my class mates where planning on having a reunion for the tenth year. I wasn't very popular I doubt anyone will remember me.

    Oh and you know what.. I had this science teacher in 5th grade, Mr. Tice. He said, "I guarantee you that within the next 10 years people will be able to play arcade games on their tv's at home." We were all like, whoa! That would be so awesome!!
    (That was in the 70's...many years before atari or intellivision came out)

    1973-1974. 12th grade math teacher. The math department had a miniframe in the back of the class. (For those of you who don't remember miniframes, like a mainframe computer from spy movies in the 60's and 70's, but smaller. Only the size of a sofa. Very impressive how small it was.) He told us, "within the next decade, everyone will have a computer on their desk."

    I laughed at him.

    Commodore 64 release date was 1982.

    Hubby and I were one of the last people in our neighborhood and family to get our first desktop. In 1994.

    Now I can laugh at him for not realizing how small computers can get.

    But one question.....I've messed one up before and how can it get really messed up by moving it say maybe five times? Makes me really confused
