Five true facts about the '80s that sound like complete lies



The TV show The Wonder Years (1988 to 1993) covered the years 1968–1973. If you filmed it today with the same window into the past, it would cover the years 1994–1999. How dull would that be? That's just one of MANY completely true facts that sound like horrible lies that I found on Buzzfeed yesterday. Click here for the full list.

Here are four more from BuzzFeed:

Will Smith is older today (45) than Uncle Phil was when The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air began on TV.

The movie Home Alone was released closer to the moon landing (21 years difference) than it was to today (24 years difference).

The doll Barbie’s has a full name: Barbara Millicent Roberts.

If you put your finger in your ear and scratch, it sounds just like the videogame Pac-Man. (Admit it. You're trying it now.)
