Hard to believe that long ago. I wonder how many more hits we would have had but for the crash.

Default Time passes so quickly

Yesterday there was a post about it being 60 years ago since Buddy Holly and others died. I watch shows on Nat Geo and they had stories that people went through to survive certain events. The two shows I watched covered Mt Saint Helen blowing (40 years ago) and the SF earthquake during the world series that pancaked some of the overpasses. I was installing a wallpaper border in the baby room during that earthquake. Now my daughter is 30 years old.

My wife and I will watch certain movies and then look at the guide to find out when they originally came out. It just makes you feel old. Jaws movie- 1975, Halloween 1978, Godfather 1972.

Space Shuttle Challenger explosion 1986

What other events or movies/songs remind you how much time as passed?

JFK's assassination and the moon landing. And the bay of pigs.

I'm 70. JFK assassination, landing on the moon, 1st draft lottery night, Challenger disaster, 9-11. I find it interesting to note that at least the moon landing was a positive event.

If you consider a moon landing shot in a Hollywood sound stage a positive.....

Nothing to do with the day the music died, but how about when Orwell's 1984 and "2001: a space odyssey" were waaaay off in the future.
