80s Time Capsules

There's nothing better than cracking open a time capsule and reminiscing about times gone by, especially when it's all about the 80s! Each yearly capsule provides lots of information -- nuggets on the good, the bad, and the ugly of history & politics, music, movies, television, sports, people who died and people who were born. So dive on in, remember the totally bodacious old days, and maybe even learn something new!
