37 here. If you ask my wife she would probably say "37 going on 12!"
To Sam & Paul: Hey guys, I heard that 40 is the new 30! So cheer up! You can keep on breakdancing for at least 2 more decades.

BUMP

I know topics like this are kinda debatable from person to person, but IMHO an "80s child" is literally just that. If you were a kid (under 12 or so - basically pre-adolescence) for a majority of the decade. I'd say 1976-84ers are about the prime age for this.

If you were in Middle or high school, you're a prime '80s teenager. The crowd in Breakfast Club are a perfect example - like 1967-72 born. Mid '70s babies could even squeeze in too.

I was born in late 1981 (that's age 24 1/2 if anyone's counting, LOL) and I have a perfect memory from mid '86 and up. I even have a few of the vaguest, teeniest snippets as far back as '84. No matter what, though, I've always considered myself an "80s child". [Big Grin]

Nah, it didn't to me. I guess I was/am just unique, though! [Big Grin]

Perhaps it was also growing up largely around adults over 30, so that seemed more "normal" to me. In other words, it's not like an 8-year old kid who, say, spends much of his time at school or in the neighborhood with other kids that age. Therefore he may look at things more from strictly a "kid" perspective, since that's what he's used to experiencing.

P.S. One thing that is weird with the passing of time, is Prince's "1999". I remember listening to ir as a kid, knowing it was ten or twelve years in the future (the time itself never seemed far off, but if I was 6 thinking about being 17-18, it did). When we got there, I felt it was weird enough, but now it being seven years in the past, it's totally like whoa! [Wink]

Which isn't as bad as it sounds, cos I went to see most of the movies people rave about here up on the big screen first time round.......

Same here. I'm 44. I remember seeing Fast Times At Ridgemont High when it first came out. I loved the 80s.

Going by the information provided in this thread, it's my pleasure to announce that the oldest Rewinder (on this thread anyway, if there are any older Rewinders out there, let us know) is GoldTransAM at 44 years of age, followed by Sammy Hain at 41 and modgod Paul at 40.

The youngest Rewinder is Lupa at age 16, next is Mouse Avenger at 17 and Van Wilder at 18 along with 80's Movie Lover also 18.

The average age of the Rewinders that posted on this thread is 30.09, meaning that Devo, Motz, Canyoudigit and Angeleyes are completely average!

The average Rewinder, then, was born in 1976 and therefore spent the 80's between the ages of 4 and 14.

I'm 33.

Thus if you do your mathematics, then you can see that I'm truly a child of the 80's.
