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 22 years old:

  • Tonya Harding took a club to Nancy Kerrigan’s leg
  • Lorena Bobbitt.. well.. she… ah… yeah
  • Apple released the 1st Mac to use the PowerPC microprocessor
  • Kurt Cobain committed suicide
  • OJ Simpson gets away with murder
  • Jupiter gets smacked by Shoemaker-Levy 9
  • Major League Baseball goes on strike
  • NASA loses another spacecraft – the Magellan, as it descends into Venus’ atmosphere
  • Ronald Reagan tells the world he has Alzheimer’s
  • Star Trek: The Next Generation ends its seven year run to free the cast to make crappy movies
  • Babylon 5 premiered in syndication
  • …so does VR Troopers
  • ER premiered on NBC
  • …so does Friends
  • The Lion King tramples the box office
  • …so does Forrest Gump
  • Clear & Preset Danger hits movie theaters and kills the Clancy franchise machine in Hollywood for a decade
