What do you miss the most about the '80s and '90s?

@izzythepush,
I also want to know the meaning of Leviticus 20:9, "Anyone who curses their father or mother is to be put to death. Because they have cursed their father or mother, their blood will be on their own head."

So, does "to be put to death" mean something else?

@Rebelofnj,
You're not supposed to curse your parents. The Bible says to honor and obey them.

@JGoldman10,
If one does not honor their parents, should the person be killed, as stated in the Bible?

Does that mean cursing non-parental units is fine and dandy with your God and bible?

My question is why are you supposed to honor or obey parents who may torture or sexual abuse you.

Why would you honor that?

Oh yeah, because it's like so much else in the bible. Gaslighting and power trips.

In an effort to move back on topic.

What I kinda miss is the overreaction to the violence in video games during the 90s. I found a 1994 news report about parents and politicians being concerned over the violence in Mortal Kombat. Looking back, it is pretty funny.


Compared to the modern games (and newer media in general), the violence in 1994's Mortal Kombat is very tame. People in the 90s would be horrified by the blood and gore in 2019's Mortal Kombat 11.

Some of the civility which existed in the past, vanished near to complete as the internet took off.

Civility is what I miss!

Sometimes when I've gone out and entered certain public facilities - libraries, stores, etc., and I had to interact with employees some employees working there have acted like I was bothering them, or they tried to vilify me for whatever reason. Whatever happened to "the customer is always right"? Employees are supposed to help people.

If certain employees of certain facilities don't like dealing with people they should not be out working in public.

I have gotten tired of having to call and make complaints about people.

I don't like rude people.

@Rebelofnj,
The early Mortal Kombat games are the whole reason the video game rating system was instilled in the first place.

@JGoldman10,
I know. It was already implied in the news report.

I'm pointing out that games now are more violent, but the news no longer make it a big deal.

Board games are still being made but are they popular like they were in the '80s and '90s?

They definitely are at the moment with people trying to entertain themselves and their kids during lockdown.

Why do I get the feeling you’re not telling the whole story?

Is rap/hip-hop "bling" and accessories still popular like they were in the '80s and '90s? Things like gold, silver and platinum chains, bracelets, pendants, grills, and fisherman hats?

Oh my yes! After all obnoxious flashy showing off of idiotic trinkets is more popular than ever!

Reading a a nationally recognized newspaper online last week, there was even a reminder of the frippery some are displaying. It seems one fellow was robbed of his wristwatch, valued at $250,000.00.

Ok

@Sturgis,
Do you know anything about rap/hip-hop culture? Do you know anyone who affects rap/hip-hop culture? I was being serious.

Fisherman hats, or bucket hats, have been around since the '80s. Eminem, who is a popular 21st century rapper, has been seen sporting them. Some 21st century rappers wear rap fedoras or caps.

Is old '80s and '90s slang still being used, in circles outside of the internet? If I were to incorporate '80s and '90s slang in any stories I wrote would kids know what I was talking about?

@JGoldman10,
I'm guessing a few 80s/90s slang words may still be used but for the most part, people are either using normal speech or current slang words.

Do you have an example of a sentence with 80s/90s slang words that you plan to use?
