Top Ten reasons:
Why the 80's were a cooler time to be a teenager than the 90's:


10. MTV actually played videos in the 80's.

09. There was only one kind of Nike tennis shoes
     - white with a red swoosh, and they didn't cost $125.

08. A comb in your back pocket is more practical
     and less painful than a ring through your nose.

07. In the 80's playing video games actually meant
     going out to DO something.

06. In the 80's, when you were out partying,
     you didn't have to worry about
     your Mom calling you on your cell phone.

05. In the 80s we didn't have to worry
     about getting our heads blown off at school
     - unless you put a whole pack of Pop Rocks
     in your mouth and drank a coke.

04. Debbie Gibson vs. Britney Spears.
     New Kids on the Block vs. N'Sync.
     New Edition vs. Hanson.
     Ok, that one's a draw.

03. In the early 80's there were kids in your high school
     who could BUY ALCOHOL LEGALLY.

02. Feathered hair was easier to care for than dreadlocks.

And the number one reason the 80's were a cooler time
to grow up than the 90's:

01. In the 80's you didn't have to worry about your pants
     falling down all the time.
     They were so tight we couldn't get them off!
