Travis GreenwoodHello, hello and welcome to 8 for the '80s! In this column, we'll be sharing eight topical links, videos, and memes from the worlds of film, music, television, celebrity, art, toys, fashion, technology, pop culture, and beyond, all filtered through a totally bitchin' '80s perspective.

Another week, another batch of awesome '80s links, as collected from Internet websites both big and small.

1. A very attentive Redditor has transcribed Doctor Hathaway's final exam from Real Genius. Spoiler alert: it's not easy.

2. Lego Deloreans inspired by Back To the Future are now a thing. *Reaches for wallet, hands (and moral resolve) shaking*

3. Supercut ninja Don Draper Says What strikes again: "Ice Ice Baby", as sung by the movies, something like 298 in total (give or take a few...)!

4. On a related note, here's a supercut of film's most iconic prop tees. The video includes threads from every decade including the '50s on up, but is shot through with some amazing sight gags that any self-respecting child of the '80s will recognize.

5. Another week, another variation on Admiral Ackbar's "It's A Trap" meme. This one is mashed around an Indiana Jones reference and it's really clever.

6. Did you work at Wendy's in the '80s? Let this training video, which opens in rather pedestrian fashion but closes with a Hip-Hop flair, take you back...

7. Space Invaders, acted out with human people. MIND = BLOWN!

8. Awesome poster art for The Princess Bride from illustrator Matt Owen.
