1985 is my current readership number.  I guess that is the number of views of my blog.  Thats pretty cool.  People are either bored enough, interested enough, or think I am laughable enough to come a see what I am droning on about.  But the number 1985 hits me like a historic brick.  Let's take a look at the year 1985:

You friendly, neighborhood Thunderhawker was 12 years old.
Ronald Reagan was sworn into a second term.
"We are the world" was recorded and unavoidable.
The first Wrestlemania happened at Madison Square Garden, spurring Vincent K. MacMahon onto billionaire status.
Back to the Future was released.
The finest film of the year, Barry Gordy's "The Last Dragon", starring Tai-Mak and Vanity was released.
New Coke was released.  What a moronic move that was.
Gobachev becomes the Soviet Premier.
The Discovery Channel debuts.
The Ford Taurus is released.
The world's population was only 4.8 billion.
Keira Knightly was born
Orson Welles died.
Tina Turner won record of the year for "What's Love Got to do With it?"
The average price of a gallon of unleaded gasoline was $1.20.  I distinctly remember it being about $.80 in my hometown.  Way to throw the curve California!
The Titanic was found, eventually spurring a purely ficticious movie with the only redeeming feature being the full frontalness of Miss Winslet, and that was nothing to write home about.
The Dukes of Hazard was cancelled.   The cost of insuring a 1969 Dodge Charger in competition orange goes way down.

Needless to say, it was an interesting year.
