History..
2012

It's funny, last night I was watching a video that Naomi brought over, and
it had Nelson Mandela's inauguration on it.. And it just strikes me that
I've lived through and still recall some fairly neat things.. I mean, when I
was born, Leonid Brezhnev was still in charge of the USSR.. It makes me feel
slightly old to think that he's the guy who replaced the guy who replaced
Stalin..

So other than the end of apartheid (May 1994), there's the fall of communism
(December 1991), the Berlin Wall coming down (November 1989), and it's just
kind of neat that I can actually remember all this happening at the time.. I
mean granted, I didn't understand much of it, but it's nice to think that I
can still remember it first hand..
