Put on your Walkman headphones and pad your shoulders, because you are strutting through the 1980’s. A time when Germany became one, cable networks popped up as people demanded their MTV, the world discovered the art that is the Cosby Sweater, and we tasted the rainbow with Skittles.

Maybe you remember watching Cal Ripken Jr. knock away one of his 431 homeruns with a cheek full of Big League Chew. Or when you spent most of your allowance trying to beat the top score on Pac Man. But of course you made sure you still had enough change left to buy an Airhead.
