I had a rat tail growing up-who remembers 'Rat tails'
[quoted image]

This would be in the 80s. I had a guy working on my crew at the factory who was wearing a "rat tail". I came to work one afternoon and saw he had cut it off. I asked why he cut it. He said he heard someone calling a fag tag and off it came.

I also got my left ear pierced in middle school-now that is considered different in today's world

Quoted from pinmister:

I was at the antique mall yesterday bumming around and I had a great flashback that took me back as I sat there for a bit staring at the poster and having some great memories.
The year-1985(magical year)
Me-kid driving his BMX bike up to 7-11 to try and collect them all and then trade with my buddies in the neighborhood. I can vividly remember getting a Slurpee and removing the bottom part of the cup to get the collectable baseball coins. They were super cool holographic cardboard coins and I can remember them like it was yesterday. One of my fond childhood memories and it put a smile on my face.

Great memories! I still have some of those coins. When I find them I’ll post some pictures.

I remember seeing this movie as a kid and being terrified by this scene with Medusa.
But now I see that Medusa was one of several roles in the film played by Tony Randall.
I was terrified of Tony Randall?!!

That reminds me of some movie that was on TV when I was a little kid probably from the 50's or 60's. Like real young so I can't remember any details. I think it was set in Greece or Roman era. Some person in power had a huge pool of molten gold that they would dip slaves or some unfortunate group of people in and then pull them out as statues to put on display. Terrified the heck out of kid me. After your medusa clip there with the lady being turned to stone, makes me wonder what that gold statue movie was called again...

Bikes were definitely the jam in my circles growing up, but this was the era that ruled our roost. GT, Redline, Diamond Back, Torker, Hutch, Haro, Mongoose, et all. Slip on your checkerboard Vanns and thrash the neighborhoods and trails.

I had totally forgotten about my old Capsela! Such a great toy that dovetailed perfectly with my natural curiosity about how stuff worked. I was constantly taking apart my toys to see what was inside and how they did their thing, so this was perfect for me. Thanks for the memory

The old league is still going strong! I played in the 70s. My first year after T-Ball they let the first girl in. She was in my grade at elementary school, and to be honest, she was better than a lot of the guys on my team. We took the championship that year. I quit a couple seasons later when I realized I liked surfing and racing BMX better than baseball.

If you got your finger whacked by the prop when starting or got dizzy from flying.

We did too-that's why I chose that picture-also the classic Mcdonald's glassware!

Remember all the cool 1980's glassware? I had the Star Wars set and ET
