We barely survived being irradiated by Chernobyl, and we didn't get crushed when the Berlin Wall came down.
We managed to avoid being eaten by disco-dancing zombies led by Michael Jackson and left a night light glowing to fend off Freddy Krueger.
We flew past the moon with ET, dodged boulders and Nazis with Indy, and blew up a couple of Death Stars, and didn't suffocate under Big Hair doing it all.
Yes, surviving the 80s was an accomplishment.
