About a month ago I was talking to my immediate supervisor, with a couple of other people there. Somehow Sly and the Family Stone came up--totally blank looks from 2 coworkers. No clue who he was. :(

Are you telling me that they didn't watch the 2006 Grammys? :o

New coworker, fresh out of college, a peer if you will, has no idea who OJ Simpson is. Never heard of him.

--They teach you how to underline in college.
--Not the fuck scenes, they don't.

Show him the Naked Gun films, convince him that OJ was a great comedic actor, so he'll let his friends know how amazing he was.

Yeah, nothing like seeing a newspaper comic strip geared toward kids that has a reference to a 33 year old movie in it...and getting the reference.

Heard on the news that there's a groundbreaking at my alma mater for a new Student Life Center, to replace the old University Center - which was a brand new building when I first visited the campus.

Both for the fact that it's been 30 years, and also, holy cow, some of them have not aged well. I wonder if everyone feels like they shouldn't look THAT much older because they don't feel that much older inside their head?

Luckily, I never identified with that movie or crowd.

I was in the library in 9th grade working on a paper when I heard the news. So sad. I was in a government class the day Discovery launched in 88 the first launch after Challenger. We got to go over to the Student Union and watch it live on the TV there. I would have missed it in another class but it was delayed about an hour.

I was in my 3rd grade classroom watching this live. It was a big deal because there was a teacher on board. That launch is burned into my memory, but I don't remember much about what happened (in class) after we realized what had happened.

Was watching live on TV speaking on the phone with a girl I was dating at the time, when she asked me "Would you take this ride?" and I said "Hell, Yes!".....then came the explosion. After a few minutes of stunned silence and grief, she asked me the same question. My answer was "Hell, Yes!".....

I was the first kid in my elementary school to know about this. No one was watching it in any of our classrooms or anything. I was in trouble (as usual) and was in the principal's office when word broke. That's when they set up the tvs to watch the news.

Probably like most of the others here, I remember wanting to be an astronaut before the Challenger exploded...

And today is the 15th Anniversary of the Columbia Explosion. Apollo 1 was 51 years ago January 27 so the last week of January has not been good to NASA.
