So Here’s A Question…

…Why were the 80s so sweaty? I feel like in a number of the images taken of people during the 1980s that I have encountered throughout my life, everyone always looks sweaty. It’s like everyone was continually engaged in strenuous activities…or had spent some quality time under a heat lamp. Maybe it was all the Flashdancing…or maybe just the jheri curl juice. Either way, I suspect that everyone and everything was sweaty.

Honest to goodness, when I think of the 80s, the first things that come to mind are sweaty cheeseburgers (and/or sweaty cheeseburger wrappers), lycra, neon lights and high-tops.

Michael, you're sweaty.

Impossibly sweaty.

Everything was sweaty. All of you were sweaty. You were all just sweaty.
