Top Ten Products I Miss from the 80's

10
Indestructible Neon Glasses

I think the ad even showed these glasses being run over by a car. I used to have a few pairs of these and I must say I looked really cool in them.


9
Teddy Ruxbin and Grubby

I never had one, but boy I sure wish I did! Just put in a tape and listen to a story through the still eyes and scary voice of Teddy Ruxpin. Then after that you could connect Teddy to Grubby and watch them talk!


8
Garbage Pail Kids

You could vandalize all of your stuff with the disgusting Garbage Pail stickers. This has to be my personal favorite...it was on the side of my brothers desk.


7
Moonboots

Some think that Napoleon Dynamite brought these back, but we all know who really did...My brother Zach! I wish I could of had a pair of these during the horrible winter snow.


6
Roller Skates

Rollerblades are stupid, Roller Skates are rad! I remember having my birthday party at Skate City....oh wait that was just a few days ago. Speaking of that I need to work on my "cross-over" and "backwards skating"!


5
Crystal Clear Pepsi

I don't know if this was from the 80's, but I just wanted to let everyone know that I miss it.


4
Leg Warmers

I never wore these since I am a boy...but I sure wish the girls still sported these!


3
OP shorts

Who wears short shorts!? I used to wear short shorts....Sweet corduroy shorts from OP! Magnum PI used to sport these and he can kick anyones butt!


2
NES and The Power Glove

I miss this so much that I still own it! and I still buy games....not very often but I do still buy games here and there.


1
Hyper Color shirts

Still probably the greatest advancement in science to date. Shirt gets hot - turns yellow, shirt gets cold - turns orange.....Amazing! Be careful though, you can't wash these shirts or their magic disappears.


What Do You Miss?

Top Ten Corniest Songs of All Time...Plus Videos

February - The Month of the "Top Ten" lists

10.
Meat Loaf
"I’d Do Anything for Love (But I Won’t Do That)"

In College my friend Becker used to crank this song up to punish everyone in his house. Because of this, they would wrestle and fight each other in the wee hours of the night. Moral of the story: Playing Meat Loaf causes fights.


9.
Color Me Badd
"I Wanna Sex You Up"

I think I used to think this song was cool when I was younger....but then again I used to think that wearing your pants backwards and tight rolls were cool too! Now that I am older I know this song sucks, but I also know that tight rolls are still cool...right?


8.
Ricky Martin
"She Bangs"

It's Ricky Martin, his whole musical career could be lumped into this list, but since I could only use one I decided to use the worst of the worst.


7.
Gerardo
"Rico Suave"

This is just one of those songs that makes me laugh. This guy is actually serious about this song and that is what makes it so funny!


6.
Aqua
"Barbie Girl"

I've got a good idea, let's take a childhood toy and write a horrible song about it....oh I almost forgot! also add some horrible synth pop background music!


5.
Hammer
"Pumps and a Bump"

Hammer formerly known as MC (Master of Ceremonies) Hammer came out with this song when he attempted to transition into Gangsta Rap. He should have just stuck with baggy pants, sweet dance moves and poppy rap.


4.
Eiffel 65
"Blue (Da Ba Dee)"

This song absolutely infuriated me when it came out. It is because of songs like this that electronic music gets its bad name. Absolute crap.


3.
Billy Ray Cyrus
"Achy Breaky Heart"

If I didn't like country music enough already, Billy Ray Cyrus had to come in and create the worst song ever! What is even worse is that it was a hit in America.... Those were some bad times for us as a country.


2.
Jennifer Lopez
"Jenny from the Block"

Proves that Jennifer Lopez is not good at anything...except divorce. I am pretty sure I pulled out all of my hair the first time I heard this song. One word to describe this song "Kaka"!


1.
Sisqo
"Thong Song"

This is the only song that has ever been able to make my ears bleed....Profusely! Sisqo and his whole gang of blondies should be severely beaten for this song! Malarkey!


What are your picks?

Japan Capsule Hotel

Check out this amazing hotel! You can get your own room for only $30! Check it!

Top Ten Firefox Extensions

Previous post since I am out today
Here are my top 10 Firefox Extensions:

1. Colorful Tabs - this recently found extension gives each of your opened tabs a different color. This is perfect for people who are multi-tab web browsers.

2. Codetch - For a Firefox extension it is the closest thing to Dreamweaver. Edit your website graphically and it will write the code. very useful.

3. 1-ClickWeather - Lets you view your current weather and the forecast weather of however many days ahead you want.

4. IE Tab - For those pesky little sites that you can only view in IE. This Extension will actually pull up the site in Firefox but through IE....tricky.

5. Fasterfox - This extension actually lets you tweak some of your network and performance settings to get a faster Firefox. The main reason I like it is that it has a website load timer that is great for my work.

6. Download Statusbar - This takes that annoying extra download window and places it at the bottom of your page.

7. Answers - Right click on any word and pull up its definition from answers.com.

8. FireFTP - I use it at work to move files from my desktop to various servers. Very useful and nice to condense another tool inside of Firefox.

9. Map This - Highlight any address and right click to get a map from Google, Yahoo or A9.

10.Favicon Tabs - This extension lets you minimize your tabs to just the Favicon, which is just the small logo for that website. This is nice for people who have a lot of tabs open at once.

.....Also, downloading all of these you will quickly find out that you need an extension to organize your status bar.

Quick Find - The Greatest Unknown Firefox Tool

I just read about this handy little tool for Firefox that I had never heard of. The 'Quick Find' feature is built into the browser and acts like the Ctrl-F functionality but is quicker...hence the name. To access the 'Quick Find' press the apostrophe (') or forward-slash (/) key to get a small field in the lower-left corner of the screen. In this screen you can type in something that you want to find and it will take you immediately to it....kinda like the Ctrl-F feature. Once you are done using the feature it will disappear is a few seconds. Also, if you want to find the next result you can simply hit the F3 key (Shift + F3 for previous) and if you want the 'Quick Find' bar to disappear simply hit the Esc key. Happy Browsing!

Update
Quick find (/) -- disappears after a while, so you don't have to close the search bar manually.

Search Hyperlinks (') -- quick find, but it only searches hyperlinks

Another helpful hint is to set this preference: Tools > Options > Advanced and check "search for text when i start typing"
