  • 1983 was a rad year. Return of the Jedi was #1 at the box office, Thriller debuted, the NES debuted in Japan, Chandrasekher won the Nobel Prize for physics for his research in astrophysics, Golding won the Nobel Prize for Lit...and so on.

    Does it really say "release"? If so, that annoys me. The amount of "radiation" released from the Three Mile Island incident was so miniscule, it's beyond irrelevant. (Less than half of what you get from a single chest x-ray for the people living in that area.)

    My bad. The exact wording was "nuclear accident. " I think accident is better than release.

  • Can't be bothered to sit while that stupid site spits out one letter at a time, so I'll just go on record that The French Connection seems to have been a pretty significant movie in my birth year and leave it at that.

    EDIT: And then I discover when you get irritated with the page and try to close it, it sends you a message saying, "Okay, fine, we'll load it all at once."

    Turns out that I was so awesome, that Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, and Jim Morrison all had to die so I could be born.
