Well, he goes invisible, then gets for example electrocuted,but is soon back on his feet. It was just on TV friday, though I didn't watch it and it's been a long time since, but he also might've fallen down an elevator shaft, into flames, and still survive...

Multiplayer in Icewind Dale just involved one player (the server player) creating the party and then granting rights to other players to control certain characters and other game options. Played a 3-3 split party with a friend of mine.

Corey Haim and Corey Feldman were not big in the 80's. They were both the very definition of the height-disadvantaged. Are they both now Lost Boys? (Do you see what I did there? )

Reading this thread I realize, I think I'm the only one here anymore that's after the win... *Sigh* Oh well, if you can't take things seriously. Though of course you ruin the fun for those who do take it seriously.

Spoiler:
Secretly we're all getting into irrelevant topics in the hope that everyone else will get bored and go away thus making us the winner. It also helps to introduce boring nerdy topics that only people born in the 70's will appreciate at all, like the tale of two Coreys, since those should drive a lot of the youngsters out.

But don't tell anyone, OK?

Hey weren't Spangles great?

Horror bags. Why don't they make those any more/ I collected a complete set of cards from them to make the skull picture.

Does anyone else miss jokes on ice lolly sticks? It was always fun to guess what it said on the bit of the stick inside the lolly based on what stuck out the bottom. Does anyone else remember the secret agent sticks with a stencil at either end of the stick and if you wrote the two stenciled parts of the same piece of paper it revealed a secret word?

Hey, I was born in 82 and I have a deep appreciation of the Coreys! Goonies was my favourite film as a kid!

I don't remember those either, but they may have been a UK thing.
The Topps company (of baseball card fame) used to make two other products that I avidly collected. One featured famous movie monsters on cards, and had a part of a much larger picture puzzle printed on the back. I had almost enough cards to make Frankenstein's monster.
The other was called "Wacky Packages", and each pack featured two stickers that parodied popular products of the time. The only two I can recall at the moment were "Crust" toothpaste and "Cheep" detergent, but there were many, many others.
Of course, in finest Topps tradition, these packages came with a stick of the very worst, hardest, and most flavorless gum imaginable. If the gum hadn't been bright pink, it would have been virtually indistinguishable from cardboard.

I do remember those, but they weren't the brand of choice around here. Here, the much-preferred "ice lollys" (we call them "ice pops" or "icicles") were the ones that came with the plastic sticks that were interlocking and could be used to build things...sort of a cross between Lincoln Logs and an erector set, with one piece per pop.

Yes. And, thanks to a badly printed stick that I never saw again, I still don't know the answer to "When is water musical?" (though I'm guessing the answer is "When it's Wet Wet Wet!").

For snack history try the "Best Before" section here

It's got Horror Bags in it but doesn't seem to have spangles.

Wow! You have even more deep-seated psychological issues than i thought.

What a tragedy in one so young. I'm a decimalisation year baby myself (four months post that historic change though.)
