    Fcuk they were great eh.

    If you were a young thruster able to enjoy them your one of lifes survivors, you'd already survived having parents who'd done the hippy sh1t, been placed face down in a lead painted cot and your able to extend both arms and flick the V's at flids.

    Tucker is a cult hero and not some no hope east end loser. Doogal is a cool name for a dog and Pugwash rules the waves.

    Owning a Capri gives you God like status, being able to snigger at a british made and designed cars is possible.

    Politicians are boring and old school, yet have a sense of decency and resign when they fcuk up.

    The girls from Waltons mountain appear in porn mags, John Holmes loses weight.

    You gotta love the 80's. Anyone else care to big them up? :lol:

  4. You had to go and spoil it didn't you?
     
  5. the 80s was the Duke of decades
     
  6. I thought at first that you were referring to the decade that Granny and I are looking forward to shortly. :D , but yes, the eighties were great.
    Three of our children got married, nine grandchildren were born, my wife and I celebrated our 50th birthdays, my naval pension quadrupled, I was still serving in the TA throughout. All seems a long time ago now though. :cry:

    I loved the 80's. The music rocked from Yazz to Guns & Roses. I lost my virginity and fell in love with big boobs, got pissed but generally spewed up. Mrs T was always insuring there was some riot being shown on News at 10. They were even going to make Star Wars real, so said some old cowboy actor. The hairdo's were class and the porn looked real.

    Most of all I loved the music (TV was still sh1te back then), the cheesy to some classic tunes. The decade ended up with some great house and dance tunes, which the Acid mob spoiled.

    Ah the dance choons. They were fooking great. Oddly enough, it's now known as "Old School" and is the only thing guaranteed to fill a dance floor. Don't forget, the tail end of the 80's started the indie scene. Wits is quite correct, bar the cheese, there was some class music in the 80's. It was a great decade to be a teenager in.
     
  9. I'm still a wee baby, 80's got me from 0-5 :D
     
  10. Did my first stint in RNDQs
     
  11. 4 years sat on my arse doing Killicks then Mechs course. Got married, moved into MQ's then got out pretty quick, 4 months in the windies on an RFA, made CPO ahhhhhhhhhhhh twas good. Total sea time 6 months HAH.

    Class piccies Blackrat, I had a thundercats quilt cover on my wank chariot when I was in 40...... :lol:

    I had taste back then, even the run ashore rig was the timeless classic of DB's, stonewashed jeans, Fred Perry and a Helly Hanson, usually enhanced at about midnight with a splash of chilli sauce and vomit.

    Ah, the days before all day drinking was legal. You had to plan your day to take advantage of whatever hotels and weird by laws let places serve booze between 2.30 and 6pm.
     
  13. The 80s? Were krapp, the music was rank , the mob was going down the pan big time they pissed about with the Electrical branch and changed it to the Weapons Elctrical branch. The diesel boats (submarines to you grey funnel skimmer erks) were coming to an end.
    Ford producing naff cars like the Mk3 Cortina more Crapis sorry Capri, heap of junk, Vauxhalls Cavaliers rotting away, miners strikes the only good thing was Mrs T stood up to the pratt otherwise known as Scargill!!!
     
  14. Busy decade for me. Got married, got me PO's, did Mechs course, got my buttons, bought my first house and had No 1 son.

    Music was the mutts nuts (mainly)
     
  15. But other than that (and you missed the Falklands out)
     
  16. The Eighties were fantastic because it became increasingly obvious that whingeing Scrotes like you were surplus to requirement.
     
  17. The "Porthleven Pumpers" on the bus that used to run between the Barn in Penzance and Culdrose..!
    Happy Days.
     
  18. Global 86........... what a wheeze THAT was! Lots of jollies in the States and all on subbies - yee hah :lol: :lol: :lol:


    Oh, big plus, got divorced too!!! :D
