Yikes pencils and erasers were the shit.

All your school supplies were "Lisa Frank" brand.(pencils.notebooks.binders.etc.)

You remember when the new Beanie Babies were always sold out.

You used to wear those stick on earings, not only on your ears, but at the corners of your eyes.

You remember a time before the WB.

You've gotten creeped out by "Are You Afraid of the Dark?"

You know the Macarena by heart.

"Talk to the hand" ... enough said

You thought Brain would finally take over the world

You always said, "Then why don't you marry it!"

Don't take this personally, but... Why is it so popular on this forum to post lists of this nature, especially with one individual from Down Under, that have been around forever or at least before? Just wondering.

I suppose to share with those who haven't seen them before. I ran into this one and thought it was funny. I guess it is similar to those e-mails you get from your friends that recirculate over and over again. Everyone should reminisce once in a while.

Okay, so what if you were born in the fifties, but still remember or have experienced about 30% of the stuff on the list?

They already have chango...

Oh and BTW:

Now this is the story all about how My life got twist turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute just sit right there
I'll tell you how I became the prince of a town called Bel-Air

In West Philadelfia born and raised
On the playground where I spent most of my days
Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool
And all shooting some b-ball outside of the school
When a couple of guys that were up to no good
Started making trouble in my neighborhood
I got in one little fight and my mom got scared
And said "you're moving with your auntie and uncle in Bel-Air"

I begged and pleaded with her day after day
But she packed my suitcase and sent me on my way
She gave me a kiss and she gave me my ticket
I put my walkman on and said I might as well kick it

First class,yo this is bad,
Drinking orange juice out of a champagne glass
Is this what the people of Bel-Air livin' like,
Hmm this might be alright!

But wait I hear the pricey booze, wine all that
Is Bel-Air the type of place they send this cool cat?
I don't think so I'll see when I get there
I hope they're prepared for the prince of Bel-Air

Well, the plane landed and when I came out
There was a dude who looked like a cop and yelled my name out
I ain't trying to get arrested I just got here
I sprang with the quickness like lightening, disappeared

I whistled for a cab and when it came near
the License plate said "Fresh" and had a dice in the mirror
If anything I could say that this cab was rare
But I thought "Ah forget it, yo homes to Bel-Air!"

I pulled up to the curb about seven or eight
And I yelled to the cabby "Yo, homes smell you later"
Looked at my kingdom I was finally there
To sit on my throne as the prince of Bel-Air

Don't know where you got this version. All the lyrics in bold aren't in the theme song I know. Also, I think in the first line "twist" is supposed to be "flipped", but not sure. "Curb" is supposed to be "house" too. Anyways, old ladies know the theme song too now, because it's on Nick @ Nite all the time.

To kids born in the 50s, 60s, 70s


First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they carried us. They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can, and didn't get tested for diabetes.

Then after that trauma, our baby cribs were covered with bright colored lead-based paints.

We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had no helmets, not to mention, the risks we took hitchhiking.

As children, we would ride in cars with no seat belts or air bags. Riding in the back of a pick up on a warm day was always a special treat.

We drank water from the garden hose and NOT from a bottle. We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and NO ONE actually died from this. We ate cupcakes, white bread and real butter and drank soda pop with sugar in it, but we weren't overweight because...... WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE PLAYING!!

We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on. No one was able to reach us all day. And we were O.K.

We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem.

We did not have Playstations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games at all, no 99 channels on cable, no video tape movies, no surround sound, no cell phones, no personal compute! rs, no Internet or Internet chat rooms..........WE HAD ! FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!

We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no
lawsuits from these accidents.

We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever.

We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays,
made up games with sticks and tennis balls and although we were told it would happen, we did not put out very many eyes.

We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just yelled for them!

Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!!

The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law!

This generation has produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever!

The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas. We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned HOW TO DEAL WITH IT ALL!

The lyrics in bold are the full version... it played on the original when they were new episodes

I think you might be right about flipped...I know your right about "House"...im just dumb and always switch those out for some reason
