    I was bron in 87 so I thought I'd missed the main 80's embarrassments but I can relate to the majority of these!

    I grew up a decade earlier, which means I probably shouldn't recognize myself in quite so many of those. And what is this cool game MASH? It sounds great...where to get it?

    Hehe-- But don't get too excited, you didn't miss out on much. From what I remember the premise was you took a piece of paper, wrote down categories (i.e what kind of house you'll live in, what your occupation will be, who you'll marry, etc.), counted off and then crossed things off until you were left with only one in each category. (oh, and not that know this because I played it everyday on the schoolbus...I think someone must have just mentioned it in passing or something )

    And yes, that list did hit a little too close to home!
