Time Out of (My) Mind

I read a great Fortunately/Unfortunately post on a friend's blog today. It inspired me, as a historian, to compare things we've accomplished over the ages:

1969: Man on the moon.
2006: Meals available for purchase on airline flights.

1769: Arguably, the first car invented.
2007: Universal availability of extra-large cupholders.

1928: Penicillin.
2002: Botox approved for cosmetic use.

1947: Chuck Yeager breaks Mach 1.
2007: My bags can't reach me.

1968: I'm born, cholicy.
2007: I write, cholicy.
