Woot! Growing up in the 80's made this not only an insta-vote, but an insta-buy!

Sweet design, and so happy to see it print!!

I thought this was going to be a binary joke with only 2 things listed.

I'm sorry Fablefire, but this is now my favorite woot shirt of all time, I hope you understand.

I am a figment of your overactive imagination, but hey, thanks for thinking of me.

Again, this is a nice design, but I fear random people will make me explain every single item on it to them while in public.

I was born in '86, so I may have been a little late to the party, but these were still valuable lessons that I learned.

Nice selection of movies and excellent use of visual cues, my favorite of which is the "wax on, wax off." Can never turn that movie off if I run across it. Everyone has at least one of those movies, and I bet a few of the usual suspects are on this shirt ; )

No, no, no, don't tug on that. You never know what it might be attached to.

So, it's late and my contacts are rebelling... Is this shirt navy or black?

Thank you! I've been looking at the end of the write up to see what clever thing woot calls this color, but that seems to be a thing of the past now

I already had to explain the "Indiana Jones" quote...

Excellent design!

Funny how "everybody knows hoverboards don't work water" did not make the cut.
Also, there is a snorg Tees shirt already with that quote.
But that line is a classic.

True, but I think the inclusion of "where we're going we don't need roads" covers the Back To The Future franchise as a whole and is arguably the most recognizable line from all three movies.

I am totally in for one. As a child of the 80's, all of the important movies are covered (except possibly The Neverending Story but maybe that was just me).

Not just you. I think Neverending Story should be there as well! I'd also love to see some Lost Boys love!

"Jehovah Begins With an 'I'"? I don't get it. Someone please explain.

When I think of the 80s, I also think of Footloose and Die Hard.

Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. When they're walking across the bit with the collapsing floor, they have to step on the stones that spell the name of God.

I was born in '91, but I still got all of these references. Does that mean I can wear this and not feel like I'm lying?

"tuck182"? Awfully close to another great 80's movie: Turk182

Grammatically, if it was "Things I learned FROM the 80s" you'd be ok.

Not so sure about "IN" unless you were really there in spirit. ;)

Also, stop making me feel old. I was in college in 1991.

I like the shirt a lot, thinking about getting it. The only thing I find odd is the choice of the Indiana Jones quote. Something like "It's not the years, honey, it's the mileage." or "It belongs in a museum" would have been much more recognizable.

I think "Why did have to be snakes" would have been better.

Wow! What a nice surprise to wake up to. Now I can die happy, having won a derby. You know, I almost said FROM the 80s, but IN was shorter. But I hope that doesn't make anyone 23 and younger feel like you can't wear this. If you think of watching old movies as a kind of time travel, then it's like you were there too. If that doesn't work for you, you've got my blessing to wear it with pride.

Thanks for voting and commenting, everyone! Be sure to join me on Facebook.

The idea is things that you have learned, not famous 80's statements.

I dunno...I think the Jehova line is one of my favorite quotes from any of the movies...it's the way he says it. There are just way too many good ones though, and honestly, none of them really seem all that much more prominent than the others. I would have also loved, "If you are Scottish law, then I am Mickey Mouse!!" That line always cracks me up, ha ha.

Killer shirt ORabbit! Absolutely well deserved!

One question though ORabbit. Why did you place "Wax Off" before "Wax On"?

The title of the shirt is "10 Things I LEARNED in the 80s", not "10 Movie Quotes from the 80s".

Because wax off is left hand and wax on is right hand. Did Mr. Miyagi teach you nothing??!
