The Year I Was Born

Hello? Is there room in that bandwagon for me?

Seems another Gore'sweb rage is this "What happened during the year you were born and shit" thing. Well, here's mine. But before it's all said and done, I'll go ahead and add some shit at the end that hadn't happened yet. So stay tuned.
In 1960 (the year you were born)

Dwight Eisenhower is president of the US

Sit-ins being after 4 black college students in North Carolina refuse to move from a deli counter when denied service

A U-2 reconnaissance plane belonging to the US is shot down in the Soviet Union

Hurricane "Donna" strikes the East Coast causing over 100 deaths in the US and the Antilles

John F. Kennedy defeats Vice President Richard Nixon in the presidential race

Cassius Clay (who later took the name Muhammad Ali) wins his first professional fight

Michael Stipe, Tony Robbins, Bono, John F. Kennedy, Jr., and Jeffrey Dahmer are born

Pittsburgh Pirates win the World Series

Philadelphia Eagles win the NFL championship

Montreal Canadiens win the Stanley Cup

Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho is the top grossing film

To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee is published

The Beatles make their debut in Hamburg, Germany

The Flintstones debut

Okay, so now that that is up there, here are some things that haven't even happened or been invented yet:
  • X-box, Game Boy, Game Cube, even Atari - not to mention 'Pong' haven't even been thought of yet
  • No space shuttle - a person hasn't even been in space
  • Rubix cube? Whuzzat?
  • No Catalytic converter on a car
  • No Microwave oven
  • No Granola bars, gummi bears, fruit roll-ups, "Space Food Sticks", Gatorade, bottled water
  • Star Wars - Bush's and Hollywood's are non-existent
  • Kennedy of course, is still alive
Oh the list could go on forever.

With the grace of God, we will in the next century also have ...
Fly-boards (in stead of bicycle)
4 engined circular flying-bob (in stead of airplane)
Air-borne wacum-cleaner to pick up stray-trash...on the beach, in the streets etc.
Cars running on sun-power.

1960 I was a freshman in high school and had already discovered girls, which, of course, was the beginning of the end.

Kirsten,
Fly boards? That's all we need.
Idiots banging into each other in the sky as well as on the ground.

Jim,
It's all downhill from there.

S.G.,
Thanks. I'm definitely going to be making an issue of that.

Fly boards don't go high up in the air...Only 4cm above the ground.
Hi, that's what they in agent time called "Flying carpet" ;)

curmudgeon said...

I see. Like on "Back To The Future" then.
That would probably be okay then.
