Elizabeth Taylor dropped in for Luke and Laura's wedding. Lady Diana Spencer joined the Royal Family. Nighttime soaps like Falcon Crest and Dynasty ruled television. President Ronald Reagan ruled the United States. Kevin Bacon danced his way across the screen in Footloose. Michael Milliken was the Junk Bond King. Material Girl Madonna made her musical debut.

What decade was it?

We can only be talking about that terrific time period - the excellent eighties.

Here are twenty-one ways for you to verify that you belong to (or belong in) the 1980's.

1. You tried breakdancing. Now you're trying to figure out how you didn't break any bones doing it.

2. You can still recite dialogue from any movie starring Molly Ringwald.

3. You and your friends made fun of the "Where's the beef?" commercials for Wendy's starring Clara Peller.

13. You think the word "like" in an integral part of every sentence and should be used as often as possible. Like this, "She was like, like why would I say that, that's not like me at all. Like who does she think she is, you know? Like, really!"

14. You ...
... know that "Back in St. Olaf" was the beginning of a very convoluted story.

15. You joined a protest or gave an interview to a local media station demanding that New Coke be shelved and original Coca-Cola be brought back.

16. You remember when there was no such thing as CNN, E!, or MTV.

17. Your parents were afraid you'd cut yourself putting on a snap bracelet.

18. You were inspired by
Geraldine Ferraro, the first (and as of this writing only in a major political party) female Vice Presidential candidate.

19. Going to the video store to get movies about Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger, and Michael Myers took up a lot of your time.

20. If someone says, "I don't know," you automatically cringe expecting the green slime to mysteriously fall from the ceiling.

21. You wore out your thumbs playing video games on any or all of the following consoles: Atari, Intellivision, Sega, Nintendo, and Coleco.
