Welcome to October which just so happens to also be the month where I celebrate a birthday.  This year I decided to take a look back at the past few years and see what happened when I was ___.

When I was 25 years old:

  • President Bill Clinton was inaugurated for his second term
  • The Comet Hale-Bopp made its closest approach to Earth
  • A Pegasus rocket carried the remains of 24 people into earth orbit for the first space burial
  • Bloomsbury Publishing published JK Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s/Sorcerer’s Stone
  • NASA’s Pathfinder space probe landed on the surface of Mars
  • Steve Jobs returned to Apple Computer, Inc
  • Diana, Princess of Wales, was killed in a car accident
  • Ben and Jerry’s introduced Phish Food, a new flavor of ice cream named after the rock group Phish
  • Buffy the Vampire Slayer debuted on the WB
  • Stargate: SG1 debuted on Showtime’s SciFirday
  • South Park debuted on Comedy Central
  • George Lucas released the 20th Anniversary Editions of the original Star Wars movies
  • Star Wars: Episode I: The Phantom Menace began production
  • Titanic ruled the movie theaters (I still haven’t been forced to watch it)
  • Men in Black, Tomorrow Never Dies, The Lost World & The Fifth Element all his movie screens

    Titanic was actually pretty good. Though the ending was…well…just pure melodrama and without sense.
