You walk into City Beach or some other "trendy teenage shop" and walk right out again as the music is too loud and " I can't hear myself think"...

or

If you don't drive somewhere on a night out in the city you spend the rest of the evening stressing that you won't get a cab home...

or

You look forward to a roast dinnner more than a night in a trendy bar

You realise 1980 - the start of *your* decade - was almost 34 years ago.

Here's one to get you thinking... if you remember the 60's then keep in mind that it was closer to World War ONE than the present day !!

There were recent 80's revival series of when Maggie was in power, miners strikes, Madonna was top of the pops, mobile phones came in, Berlin wall went down etc.Jeez it was scary - only seemed like yesterday yet all these things seemed aged, old, historical and out of date..

The size of the mobile when it first came out compared to now

Time flies.....

Some of the lyrics in songs shock you.
I must still be very young!

Your son tells you he wants to walk the great wall of China when he grows up. You say you'd like to do it with him and he says "if you're still alive"
