Happy 42nd Birthday, Kirky!

Well, what a day. My big bro turns 42. If I feel old, I can't even imagine what 42 feels like. But, even though you've been over the hill for quite some time now, we can still take a look back at all the historic events that occurred during you lifetime. Also, as your little brother, its a God Given right for me to be as annoying as I can for as long as I can. So here it goes....

Consider this, the first Superbowl occurred 1967 (the year you were born), which was won, of course, by the Green Bay Packers. 1968 brought the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr and RFK. As we know, in 1969, the wheel was invented and the following year, fire was discovered. The seventies brought the Vietnam War, the Munich Olympic Games, Watergate, Pol Pot, the age of Disco, and that hotty, Margaret Thatcher. You would've been about 10 years old when Stars Wars was released. (You were 32 years old when Episode 1, The Phantom Menace was released. Isn't that trippy). In the 80's, you had Pac Man, the Rubics cube, ET. Michael Jackson had "Thriller", we found a hole in the Ozone layer, Chernobyl happened. The 90's had Desert Storm, and the Waco Incident. We captured the unabomber and Tiger Woods won his first masters. Leo sailed on the Titanic. Viagra hit the market. (Speaking of Viagra, it might just be time old man.) And of course, the Y2K bug was going to take down the environment.

That's quite a timeline....

Happy Birthday, and I hope 42 is the best year yet!
