80's Trivia

The 1980s were a very popular decade. Many people who were teens and young adults during the 1980s are finding that 80’s trivia is coming back.

In 1980, if you were working for minimum wage, you were making $3.10 an hour. On May 18, 1980, Mount St. Helens, a volcano dormant for 120 years, erupted in Washington. Over fifty people were killed by this eruption including those in a plane crash. December 8, 1980 was a sad day in rock-n-roll history. John Lennon became a part of 80’s trivia when he was shot and killed by Mark David Chapman outside his home in New York. A music revolution began in 1981 with the airing of the Music Television channel (MTV).

In 1982, there were seven deaths due to cyanide poisoning of Tylenol. Do you remember the city in which that occurred? It happened in Chicago and prompted the beginning of “tamper-proof” bottles. In 1985, the sunken remains of the Titanic were discovered.

One day that most people will not forget is January 28, 1986. That was the day that the space shuttle Challenger exploded shortly after takeoff. It was also the first shuttle carrying a civilian – teacher Christa McAuliffe. In 1988, a bomb exploded on Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, killing all 259 people on board and 11 people on the ground.

On March 24, 1989, the Exxon Valdez oil tanker ran aground in Alaska. It is a piece of 80’s trivia we wish we could forget. The Captain, Joseph Hazelwood was accused of being intoxicated and 11 million gallons was oil was spilled. No humans were killed but the damage done to the environment and wildlife was immeasurable. In August of 1989, two brothers killed their wealthy parents. Do you remember who they were? It was the Menendez brothers, Eric and Lyle.
