    You know that's odd. I heard just recently that they had to dumb down the SAT's just so kids could pass... Curriculum's too bloated? Maybe it's bloated with the wrong stuff. And you don't have to be 18 to be on myspace. My friend is only 16,too and he's on myspace. I only said I was 18 because I don't want some freak looking for me, so I dont want my real age on there.


    Actually, no, they haven't dumbed down the SAT's. They've just made them more efficient. Assuming you're talking about the adding of the essay, getting rid of the analogies, and/or tailoring the articles to make an even playing field, then that's not dumbing them down. I think they should've done it years ago. But all standardized tests are relative anyway. They change the test so often to fit the next group that will take them. And they certainly don't do it to "pass" students because you can't pass American SAT's. You get what you get.

    And you do have to be 18+ to sign up with MySpace. For some reason they allow you to change your visible age to 16. :roll:

      For some reason? My friend signed up as a 16 year-old. He didn't tell them he was 18 and then change it on his profile.

        In 1989 I was 5 I wish I was born in like 78 or 79 so I could remember more of the 80s.

          I think I got a good deal being born in 81' because I got to live my younger years in both the 80's and 90's. I can remember things as far back as when I was 3 years old (1984).

            I feel old. in 1989, I was 18, graduated high school, spent so much time doing different things. I was never home. I was always out with my friends in my new car (1987 monte carlo ss). I was never, ever home.


            It reallly saddens me that today, no one goes out anymore and rather stay at home and sit on the computer all day.


            back in my day, we called them "losers". :)

              I was born in July of '89. I got to experience.....give or take 5 1/2 months. I remember a lotta stuff about the early ninties, though, including Lamb Chop's Play Along (lol) and the baaaaaaad floaral print that every girl seemed to be wearing. Including me. :oops:
              Cookie!!! OM NOM NOM!

                I remember a girl I had a crush on at school used to wear a hideous floral dress. What were you girls thinking? :P

                In 1989 I was 6/7. When I think about my city, I generally think of the way it was in 1989, I'd be perfectly happy if it had never changed. None of my favourite places exist anymore. :cry:

                    January 1980 here. I wish I could have been born in like 1966-1967 so I could have graduated in 85. But I got to live through the screaming day-glo-hot pink- huge hair late 80's and the part of the 90's that the 80's rubbed off on. I can say I was one of those girls who wore the stretch pants with the lace at the ankles with a gigantic New Kids on the Block T that went down to my knees, along with the obligatory chunky bracelets and passafire jewlery (what was the big deal with binkies becoming trendy?) and shoelace barettes.

                      anyone born after 89 should count themselves lucky, your heritage is perfectly preserved in dvds and high quality recordings. with technology so accesible now its the best time to be young. im from 76 so my memories are very sketchy


                      I was also born in '76, and also have trouble remembering shit. :?

                          1989 was my senior year in high school.
                          Fun year, but, man, I am glad some of the fads went out quick.

                          Girls with big hair, Z Cavaricci's, acid washed blue jeans with a bunch of holes in them, Hypercolor, Genie Pants...ect.

                          that's my short list.

                                Yep, 89 was graduation for me too.....I look back at the photos in the year book and go "Damn...we didn't notice it at the time, but that hair was freakin HUGE!" :D

                                I will say this.....being born in 70 I consdier myself pretty damn lucky. Not only did I get to live through the cheeze that was the 70's, but it made the 80's seem just that much better when everything went electronic. Personal Computers, cable television, VCR's....the birth of the cordless phone..and then..the cell phone...videogames..I feel lucky to have witnessed it all.

                                PS: Some fads needed to go...but tight acid-washed jeans on girls wasn't one of them ;)

                                Giant shoulderpads...those had to go....those giant oversized shirts...had to go. Tight acid washed jeans? no no...those should have stayed.

                                What amazed me were that BELLBOTTOMS made that huge comback in the late 90's. FRICKIN BELLBOTTOMS.......can you *make* a more retarded looking pair of pants!?

                                    All I remember about 1989 was that it was the first year my parents let me see PG-13 movies, and thus began my journey down the road of BLISSFUL SIN!

                                      I was born in 1986 so I cant remember much of 1989 only that I was in preschool and the Ninja Turtles ran my life for me. :wink: I can remember much of the 90s and whatever spilled over from the 80s so those were some good times.

                                      I wish I were born in 1980 though so I would have been fully conscious of both the 80s and the 90s. Plus I wouldve been smart enough to record all the great toons from back then that I miss now. Stupid, stupid, stupid.
                                      WHAT?

                                        Y'know, I was 12 back in 1989. During that year, I started speaking 3 more languages, watched some Spanish shows & played games at Chuck E. Cheese's.

                                          what a decent year it was the 49ers won the superbowl
                                          i was ten years old yep i was born in the greatest year ever 1979.
                                          a 70's Baby a 80's Kid a 90's Teen and a 00's Adult :)

                                          thoe Being Born Earyler in the 70's might not had been bad.

                                          being born when i was i did not grow up with the internet or anything like that or Digital Cable.

                                          i remeber when i first got my First NES SYstem in 85.
                                          I remeber all the great shows of the 80's but there still in a ton of black holes
