    Stood out in my front yard trying to see if I could see parts of Challenger

    Stayed up all night on my basement TV watching invasion of Iraq/Kuwait

    Drank a quart of maple syrup when Aunt Jemima died.

    I doubt this made the national news all that much, but in 2002, two teens went missing in Oregon City, which was one town over from where I was living, and several months later their remains were found on a local man's property. I'll never forget the press conference where the police confirmed it.

    This. But for some reason more ingrained in my memory is the first time I got a blowjob.

    Yep, that's whose property they were on.

    One was buried under a freshly poured cement slab "for a pool", the other was in his shed.

    The election of Barrack Obama. Never thought I'd see any person of color be President in my lifetime.

    The Gacy serial killings were in the same vein for me. I wasn't in his age group as I was under 10 but it was close enough that everyone in the area was on high alert to watch out for their kids.

    I can still remember the video of police dragging body bags our of his house. It frightened me. I don't know why my parents would have let me watch that.
