    I remember having a Baader-Meinhof moment because I had just learned about the World Trade Centers a couple of days before they fell.

    This is kind of relevant:


    My brother and I just tried to get an old C64 to work, but the keyboard part won't light up.

    Kinda want to try to buy a new one, but they cost 30 cash monies.

    Maybe I should just try a new power cable & transformer.

    I still have a hard time believing people were born after, say, 1992
    Change that to 1991 and that's me.

    This actually reminds me of playing kickball in PE.

    We played on an actual baseball field. I slipped on home plate and fell straight onto my back. Got the wind knocked right out of me.

    I've been very lucky with regards to injuries and whatnot, so that's pretty much the worst thing that's ever happened to me. I think most people would admit it sucks pretty badly though - you're just sitting there, trying to breathe but it just feels like nothing's there. Ugh.

    Our playground was huge, but it was all asphalt

    There were three kickball courts, though, and that was badass.

    There was one court that the gifted kids (us) and the magnet kids played each other at

    This one was the test of your mettle because to the left there was a handball wall, and if you hit it, you got a free double. If you kicked over it, immediate homerun.

    The last day of sixth grade, we had an epic kickball game that we won.

    Fuck I miss elementary.

    mostly just shoving and posturing, then everyone ends up shaking hands because the guy travels with a group of do-bads for backup

    problem with that is, everyone knows everyone in this town, soooo there's a good chance your rival's crony is someone who watched you have an allergic reaction to kahlua when you were 11

    it's hard to get serious about it, but the kid (Tim, I think?) still tries it every few years

    he's an apple-cheeked youth with the kind of voice you'd expect to hear in a western saying "oooh, cmon Sherrif, can't I help round up Black Bart?"

    in middle school, he was shoved in a garbage can almost weekly, which shouldn’t exist outside of movies but there you are

    that said, I think Cohen made him eat grass one time in Elementary, so maybe there's more to it

    I was probably playing a shitload of Pokemon at that age.

    Oh and the World Trade Center attack happened, so that blew away a bit of that lovely childhood naivety.

    Jesus, I was in college when that happened. Young whipper-snappers.

    Same. I went to undergrad in Chicago, fairly close to the Sears Tower. Needless to say, on that day is was a pretty credible threat that a plane was coming for it next.

    The university locked down, people were running in panic from the loop area, highways were jammed with cars. It was very unnerving that night, sitting around, having some beers, and seeing jet fighters on patrol over Chicago.

    Thereafter, while sitting at the El stop I would count how many American flags I saw on cars as they passed by; this number was very large.

    When I was ten they posthumously commissioned Eugene Bullard as a Second Lieutenant in the Air Force! And 25 people killed themselves in the town where I lived when I was eight! Also apparently Aung San Suu Kyi was freed from house arrest. Heh.

    This is my favourite, though:
    November 4 – San Francisco: The first conference devoted entirely to the subject of the commercial potential of the World Wide Web opens.

    Meanwhile I wrote and illustrated a book about dolphins, learned to make origami jumping frogs and read Jonathan Livingston Seagull.
