Kinda inspired by one of my comments in another thread...it got me thinking about a conversation I had with my GF a little while back.

Basically I figured out if I had to go back in time to a certain year and live there and be completely happy...it'd have to be 1989!!!

Let's face it you could buy a GTR back then, Maccas came in those cool polystyrene box things...and the rave scene was emerging and way cool.

We're in 2004 now and I can remember thinking back in '89 that it was going to be all hover-cars, laser guns and other cool things! We still have tyres dammit!!!

So strap yourself into the Delorean, turn the flux capacitor on, cause we're going back to 1989........basically do you guys thing 'the future' was a major let-down and what year do you think you could be quite happy living in?

BTW I am not currently under the influence of drugs :cheers:

1989 was the year in IMHO - it was the year I discovered boys. It was also the year of “Bust a Move,” Young MC.

OK so I've got another fan of '89.....it sure was 'the place' ;)

My paranoid fear is that if I found myself back in '89...I wouldn't know any lotto numbers for the future!!!

ahhhh 1989

what a drug filled haze that year was ;)

some facts about 1989 of interest

The bicentenary of the French Revolution of July 14 was preceded, on June 11, 1989, by the centenary of Pizza Margherita ( the special version mozzarella cheese, tomatoe and basil appreciated by the Queen of Italy ).

In May, the same year, it was finally celebrated the centenary of hamburger which was born in Pennsilvania among the German emigrants.
