Pretty cool! My birthday is 6/22/1986.
11 years old when Princess Diana died
8 years old at the time of Oklahoma City bombing
7 years old when O. J. Simpson was charged with murder
6 years old at the time of the bombing of the World Trade Center*
4 years old when Operation Desert Storm began
3 years old during the fall of the Berlin Wall


The thing is, I can remember when OJ was charged with murder, but I don't remeber the first WTC bombing. :-/ Oh, and I also remember a BIT of desert storm. . .

You kids sure missed out.
8/12/58
Here are some highlights;
17 years old on the U.S.'s bicentennial Fourth of July
15 years old when President Nixon left office
13 years old when Alabama Gov. George C. Wallace was shot
10 years old at the time the first man stepped on the moon
9 years old when Martin Luther King Jr was assassinated
6 years old during the Watts riot
5 years old at the time President Kennedy was assassinated
a 1 year old when Hawaii was admitted as 50th of the United States

I don't remember the Kennedy assassination or Hawaii being admitted. I don't think I took much notice of the Watts riot or MLK assassantion either. I do remember the moon landing and Nixon quiting. I graduated high school in the bicentennial year.

I was born three years earlier (3/10/55) and I also remember everything except the Hawaii thing. ( Man, I remember the JFK assassination like it was yesterday.)

Oh, and if you remember the moon landing in '69, you must remember Woodstock...which took place the same year.

I must ask what this refers to. It was 1983 I guess, '83 is the year I lost...............or was it '82.........somewhere in there I have almost no recollection of.

BTW elipsis; your about the same age as my youngest son.

Also, I find it immensely cool that someone around my father's age likes Cradle of Filth.
