    I was done with class and I rolled a fatty and planted myself in front of the couch with a huge fucking sandwich and a 2ltr coke when I saw it. The high really intensified the moment. A freakingly intense thing to watch. I ate the sandwich in 3 bites though. I was bat shit stoned.

    Interesting look back at news delivery. For the most part it's people in front of cameras, and less of them.

    No split screens, no graphics, no crawling stream of other news, etc.

    I was in an automatic transmission rebuilding class. The teacher was a big science freak and had a TV set up in the shop so we could watch. He was a very sad man for days after.

    "Major malfunction" became the standard term for a giant fuck up after that day.

    Makes you remember how professional newscaster were -- even in 1986. Can't imagine Dan Rather, Walter Cronkite et al mixing it up with Kathy Griffin on a New Year's Eve special.

    My senior year of high school and we had off because of a snow day. I watched that live on TV with my mother. When it exploded, we both said "Holy shit" at the same time. I remember it like it was yesterday.

    I was on the phone talking with a friend. I heard a "click-click" sound. I said "What's that?" He said "I got that new 'call waiting' service last week, hold on I'll get right back to you." About 30 seconds later he came back and said "Jesus Christ, that was Pete. He said he the space shuttle just exploded." That's how I learned about it.

    I remember walking into science class after recess and the teacher was crying. She told us what happened.

    I was in 7th grade and I was in a study hall. The teacher took an in school phone call and then she turned on the TV. I still remember the class room and the teacher. Like said in a lot of the other posts, you don't forget where you were.
