Subject: "You're eighty-six, man!"

Dear ADS-L people,

I watched the TV-series "Northern Exposure" the other day

and a character there used the expression "You're eighty-

six, man" to another, who had done some renovations at this

first character's house (well, actually it was a trailer),

and caused some water damages there. I understood this to

mean something like "You are a disaster, man". I wonder

though, were this expression comes from, and how well

known it is in the US? Would someone have a clue?
