Lightbulb Topic of the Day

I thought it would be interesting if we had a thread dedicated to a daily topic of discussion.

Basically someone picks the topic for the day and well, we put our input. The topic can be anything at all. Sports, pop culture, music, movies, TV, ehMac, whatever. the possibilities are endless.

We should however set out some ground rules. We had this problem in the Person of the Day thread where (intentionally or not) there would be several nominations for the POD. My suggestion to alleviate that is for every new topic, put the date with the day of the week in the message body at the top in bold (even though the date is on the post it can get missed). Like this:

Wednesday, Nov 23.

That should eliminate any confusion. Unless there are any other suggestions.

As well, lets stick to the daily topic. No derailing or "crapping". This is for fun after all.

Any way, I'll start off the daily topic.

80's fashion. Discuss.

I don't remember '80 fashion - can I have a hint?
Did we have high waisted jeans with flared bottoms? I liked those.

When I think of 80's fashion I get pictures of Miami Vice suits, pinks, and sport cars.

Big hair, blondes, rockers in makeup, pastels, tennis shirts, damn aligator, pockets with zippers...
Horrible flashbacks are starting, got to go lie down for a while.

It was bad enough having had to live through it... let's not go back there. It's like disco... let it stay dead!

Cheers

"Just beat it! Beat it!"

Black jackets with the sleeves rolled up to the elbow. Pants with a zipper that go all the way to the other side. Hair cripping. Chains, bandanas, and keylocks around the wrist. Zinc sunscreen. Vuarnet Cateye sun glasses.
