I was in the 6th grade and we were watching the launch on tv live.

Remembering this still sends shivers up my spine...to stand there and watch the vapor trail(s)...it is certainly one of those things you remembering exactly where you were when it happened.

Still think it the greatest understatement, and agree with NHP later in the thread that the "throttle up" call and reply still send chills.Originally posted by Gedunker
Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.
Where was I, 25 years ago when the Space Shuttle Challenger tragedy happened ?
I was not in school, living & working in Breckenridge, CO.
That specific moment I am to say I don't remember what I was doing
85% dark chocolate is too bitter for me. I'm more of a 65 - 75% dark chocolate girl.
Advisor: "Mr. President, preliminary polling data concerning the new policies on health care reform suggest the new initiatives enjoy wide support among families earning less than $30,000 a year."
President: "Before we introduce phase II initiatives, let's see what numbers are on 65 -75% dark chocolate girls...."

Sorry to hear about the illness of your friend's son Veloise. That's so heartbreaking...especially when it happens to a child.
As for the Challenger, it happened a year before I was born.
I remember the Columbia diaster though, which happened about 8 years ago, on February 1, 2003. It was the weekend and I didn't do hardly anything at all except watch the news coverage of that event. Even when I had to go somewhere, me and my mom listened to it on the radio in the car, and we never listen to news radio. The Columbia disaster began a series of bad things to happen that month...the E2 nightclub stampede, the President's Day blizzard, and then the Station nightclub fire. The Iraq War followed in the next month. Crazy times.

Yesterday, I was at a coffeehouse that I regularly frequent. A geeky couple walk through the door; both big and doughy, with the man wearing a fedora and speaking in a deviated septum-inflected voice. They sit down on a couch, begin a conversation about anime, and within five minutes they're both going to town. With loud slurping and moaning noises.

I did a photoshoot today in 38 degree heat. The guys were all in suits and ties. I considered myself lucky in shorts and a singlet top!
