9 horrible things from the ’80s that are actually totally awesome

As long as kids in their scrunchies and off-the-shoulder Flashdance sweatshirts are considered retro and cool, it seems a shame that we not embrace other, less-glamorous traditions from the 1980s just as enthusiastically.

We all know fresh vegetables are better than processed crap; we know that low-cal fake food should be shelved in favor of good fats and whole grains. We know Aussie Sprunch Spray is definitely carcinogenic, and it has been scientifically proven that we will take a decade off our lives if we keep standing in front of the microwave. But there are certain genius inventions that came to prominence in the decade that brought us Intellivision, Reaganomics and Salon Selectives that it nonetheless seems a terrible shame to let go.
