I wish the presentation was much better. Otherwise, I learned a couple of factoids I didn't know before. I had no idea Seinfeld was popular in 1982, for example. :-B

Pretty cool indeed. The first commercial concord flight was in 1976, Apple Computer Company was formed, and the Viking spacecraft landed on Mars. Man that did take a long time. I stopped once it started talking about when I was 15.

It was pretty funny how it started off telling me the "Fantasy Football Cafe didn't exist yet." :-b

books were still popularly read on paper, the year I was born. Apparently I was the ultimate achievement of my birth year.

I'm surprised the US's bicentennial celebration isn't mentioned in mine. It got its own quarter and everything.
