Things we learned from the 80s

In my last poll, 2/3s said Windows 8 will give something new for Apple and Linux users to laugh at, and 1/3 said they are looking forward to having another excuse not to get stuff done.

On to my next poll:

The 80s were a great decade, a time without (much) war. A time when people yelling, that other peoples lifestyles would cause the destruction of the planet, were given tin foil hats, not their own TV (News) shows.

Of course there were dangers we didn't know about.

Which of these would you have liked to know about in the 80s:

That Milli Vanilli were ahead of there time.

Milli Vanilli caused a huge scandal when it was discovered that they didn't actually sing, they just lip synched to stuff done by studio musicians. Now that is almost standard, if not signers use Auto-Tune a computer program that adjusts the singers voice to match the music.

Sigfried and Roy, some things do taste better with age.

Roy worked with Lions for decades, but was not tender enough to eat.

Starring in Music Videos makes you stab baseball players.

Tawny Kitaen appeared in several Ratt videos and was the only reason Whitesnake made the charts. In 2002 she made the news again for stabbing her husband, Chuck Finley, with a stiletto shoe. Since then she has been in and out of rehab.

“The Jungle” is quite fattening.

Axel Rose welcomed us to The Jungle, he didn't tell us how high the Calorie count was. He did warn us that, “You're gonna Die.” He didn't say it was from Type II diabetes.
