I was BORN in the 80’s.
The last SANE generation!
We are the last generation that played in the street, we were the first who played video games, saw cartoons with no colour and went to the amusement parks.
We were the last to record songs off the radio on cassettes, we are the pioneers of walkmans and chat rooms. We Learned how to program the VCR before anyone else, played the Atari, ten- ten, boju-boju, “Mummy and Daddy”, Nintendo and believed that the Internet would be a free world.
We are the generation of the Thunder Cats, the Transformers, Scooby doo, Voltron, Super Ted, Willi Willi, G I JOE & Tales by the Moonlight.
We travelled in cars without seat belts or air-bags, lived without cell phones. Rode our bicycles down the road without brakes. We never had phones but still kept in touch.
We did not have Sony play station, X box, 99 television stations, rather we waited till 4pm for dear NTA. Had no flat screens, surround sound, mp3 players, iPod, computers and the Internet. But nevertheless we had a GREAT Time!!! …
Unlike today, up was up and down was down.
