The terrible 80’s

In the 80s of the last century, men – but also women… in short, the human race – presented characteristics of robustness and adaptation to wild life which were then lost over time. Indeed, it is incredible how our species was able to survive in environmental conditions as adverse as those of the 1980s. Just to give an example, at that time there were those who he rewound the music with a wooden pencil stuck in a plastic box, with the strength of their arms alone. These are things that are unthinkable today: no one would be able to do it anymore.

A wild age with terrible living conditions

Also the sense of smell of men – but also of women – was much more developed: for this reason a crude technological form called “scratch and sniff” was devised, mentioned among the other things in this interesting documentary.
Warning: for some particularly crude scenes, the viewing is not suitable for children.

You kids think – your gear is iconic
But Im gon take you back to see some real electronics
Gimme a beige PC, green text, black screen
And 64 kB of memory (thats plenty!)
Forget a phone that fits in your pocket
I keep my phone in a bag in my car (thats how we rock it!)
Who needs a camcorder, that size of my hand?!
You know I wanna look like a news cameraman!
(I wanna perch it on my shoulder… like an overweight parrot!)

My disks were floppy but my hair was stiff
And all my stickers were scratch and sniff!

In the 80s! If it was big it was good!
80s! My TV was wood!
80s! My car was shaped like box!
80s! Back when everything rocked!

Youre tellin me MP3s oh theyre so great
Id rather push Rewind; and sit and wait!
My first VCR cost me five grand
VHS is best! (Im a Beta Man!)

16-button controllers really make me sick!
Gimme one red button and a joystick!

In the 80s! The bigger the betta
80s! I had an antenna!
80s! My TV was thick
80s! We didnt point and click
80s! I had a big boom box
80s! I calculated with my watch
80s! My mix tapes were hot
80s! Back when everything rocked!
