    Yup.

    There is no America. There is no democracy. There is only IBM, and ITT, and AT&T, and DuPont, Dow, Union Carbide, and Exxon. Those are the nations of the world today.

    Remember when Pepsi did the Pepsi Points in the mid '90s, and aired a commercial showing a kid getting ready for school showcasing all the awesome stuff you could get with your accumulated Pepsi Points? (T-shirt, leather jacket, sunglasses, etc.)

    (The commercial, for those who have forgotten)

    Turns out, Pepsi DID own a fleet of navy submarines and warships at the time...

    It's a Wonderful Life premiering in New York is closer to my birthday than today.

    Also, a fun little tidbit for anyone that's 36, your total number of birthday candles is 666.

    April 1st, 1945:
    US armed forces land on Okinawa
    Nearer to your birth date than today!

    Today is equidistant from my birthday with the Mount Vesuvius eruption of 1906. I've beaten 12% of the people born on my birthday so far. (Or have they beaten me?)

    Today is equidistant from my mother's birthday with the recognition of Greek nationhood in 1832. She has beaten 94% of the people born on her birthday. Go Mom! (Although, seriously, we need to sell the house.)

    At the equidistant point for my mother, James Madison is still alive.

    Meme going around yesterday:

    It's now 2020. The year 2000 was 20 years ago. Ironically, 1980 was also 20 years ago

    That site is fun. After discovering how old I am, I then put my daughter's birthday in, and it said, "congratulations, you are not old at all"

    Then I put my mother's birthday in, and well, she's old.

    The American Red Cross is established

    That 70's Show premiered in 1998. If a show that looked back the same distance in time premiered today it would be set in...

    1998.

    Time is a funny thing...

    The Wonder Years aired from 1988 and 1993 and depicted the years between 1968 and 1973. When I watched the show, it felt like it was set in a time long ago. If a new Wonder Years premiered today, it would cover the years between 2000 and 2005.
