Heavy Metal is not a fad! }:-)

Nikes were the shoes of choice when I was a kid. Anything else got you beat up on a regular basis, and if they were Payless shoes, you were really asking to get beaten up. :-b

Oh yeah, we also had the "Blue-Light Special" kids. You know, the parents bought the kid's clothes at K-Mart? Those guys always got beaten up. "Blue-Light Specials". :-b


bringing back memories mad? just how much lunch money did you take? shameful... ;-)

I totally remembered the Macarena song :-B

I remember my dad bought me one of those electronic pets(what was it called) and the clock was soo off that it show 12pm when it's really 12am 2 days after I started a game(with fixed clock). The animal died, I can't wake up in the middle of night to feed it :,-(

But memories.... :*)

Honfu, I think you're talking about Giga-Pets, but I could be wrong. B-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

I hate the Macarena. :-P If I were at a dance and they started playing that song (which they did every single time), I would leave. Sometimes I'd come back after it was over...other times not.

Fantasy sports as a fad? Doubt it. Too many geeks like us need some outlet for our mathematical prowess. ;-)

The Flop Hairstyle (John Conner from T2 hair cut) - basically long hair on top that is shaved underneath so it flops around. I could never grow my hair that long so I went with the buzz mostly.


Yeah, kind of like the one bully from the Simpsons...I can never remember what his name is, though. Not Jimbo or Kearney...the other one. :-)

I sure hope to God that Reality TV is a fad. :-o

Crazy Bones, though maybe they were just a Canadian fad, I'm not sure.

Another fad I just thought of were those Big Johnson T-shirts or Coed Naked shirts.
