Summer is getting closer. All of the talk about how camp is close must make you nostalgic! Think about a time when:
- Margaret Thatcher is elected Prime minister of the UK
- The Walkman is released at a cost of $200. The Walkman plays one cassette tape at a time, now we have IPods for less money that play 30 hours of music at a time
- First snowboard is invented
- Trivial Pursuit is launched as a nerds revenge, knowing random facts is now considered a plus at dinner parties
- The first modern Bungee Jump is performed, a very brave person agrees to be the first person to ever bungee jump!
- Superman the movie is released
- Gloria Gaynor’s “I Will Survive” tops the charts
- Charlie’s Angels hits the TV
To help you memorize all of this, just picture Margaret Thatcher listening to “I Will Survive” on her brand new Walkman . . . While riding a snowboard. Meanwhile, the three Charlie’s Angels are playing Superman in Trivia Pursuit. No one is bungee jumping.
Picture the image in you mind. There will be a test later.
