A friend of mine mentioned that his nephew was studying the 1980's in his high school history class.

I'd say that's more phoning it in from the class'/teacher's part. Still pretty scary, though.

I know... my first reaction was similar. Which begat the question, "What are they studying anyway, Run DMC?"
Living through it, is different than studying it, you know?

I felt like Reg after thinking a minute... what did the (80's) ever do for (history)?
Iran Contra.
What?
Iran contra.
Oh. Yeah, yeah... There was that. That's true, but....
And the Challenger blew up. Remember what it was like watching that from your school desk?
Oh Yeah... All right, I'll grant you Iran-contra and the space shuttle disaster are two historical events that happened in the eighties.
And the the Cold War ended.
Well, yeah... obviously the Cold War. I mean, the Cold War goes without saying, doesn't it? But, apart from Iran-Contra, the Challenger and the Cold War...
El Salvador.
Crack and Gang wars.
Desktop computers.
Oh... Shut up!!

Yeah, if you think about it, it's like studying the 60's when I was in school in the 80's so I guess our parents felt like that back then. But they were old back then, dammit!
I'm not insane, my mother had me tested!

I know what you're saying, but I think the civil rights movement and anti-war stuff was acted by people who knew they were making history. The 80's history is mostly shrouded behind the governmental policies that were found out later. We weren't really marching on, and being a part of it like (many) were, in the 60's.
I bet the 70's teens feel pretty similar though.

Did you tell them to bring the Friends function back, while they are at it?

They got rid of the friends feature!?

It was Trois couleurs: Bleu.
Netflix wrote:When a young Frenchwoman (Juliette Binoche) tries to uncover her famous composer husband's secret life, her steps take her alternately closer to and further from the truth on a journey that ultimately leads to self-discovery. In this first installment of Polish cinematic genius Krzysztof Kieslowski's "three colors" trilogy, Blue stands for "liberty" (as in the French national motto) and is the first color of the red, white and blue French flag.

Coincidentally, that was the first CD single I ever bought. Nevermind was one of my first CD albums.
