On November 9th, 1989 the Berlin Wall fell down. (Probably the biggest news story of the 80's)

Have you used that topic yet?

Hard to believe that things that happened 20 or less years ago (stuff that I either remember or happened when I was young) are considered, not just history, but some of today's teenagers have no clue that the stuff happened.

Actually Jump, that took place in 1992.

If you want some more 80s stuff Homestar Runner, here's a good place to start:  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1980s

Transformers debuted in AMerica in 84. Leading to a popular cartoon, comic, toy line and movie. The reprecussions are still felt today.
