Time Travel

Try this. Go to Google Images. Type in the year of your birth. Nothing else. Hit Search. Take in a snapshot of the world as it was when you first arrived. When I tried it, I saw a world I didn't recognize. What's the saying? The past is a foreign country? Something like that. I was surprised to see that Elvis, the Beatles, Barbra Streisand and other entertainment icons were already famous when I was born. I had no idea. The cars look like rocket ships with all of the fins and fenders and the offices look so barren without computers. So, what does your year look like?

My year is not nearly as interesting. 1979, while it does have Apple Computer and some other geeks showing up, is some boxy ugly cars and not too much more that's amazing.

Are you kidding? You've got the Blues Brothers, Aliens, Bjorn Borg, Queen, Boomboxes, mullets, and tons of other great kitschy stuff. That was my senior year of high school. It was an ugly year, but fun.

I looked up 1988, it scared me and so I left. O.o

(I deleted my other comment due to spelling error, I didnt realize it would say I deleted it after the fact. >.<)

I wondered if maybe someone posted their birth year and then panicked and deleted it.
