Just realized that my favorite console of all time, the Sega Dreamcast, is 20 years old today. Launched on 9/9/99.


I remember playing NBA2k on that and being blown away. Great system.

This years nominees for the Toy Hall of Fame.

3 get picked, my choices are Risk, Care Bears, and Matchbox Cars.  Although it pains me to leave out He-Man (I dressed up as him for Halloween 2 years in a row!) Matchbox cars are timeless.

 

I'm also okay with MLP or the CornPopper being inducted.  Having said that I will flip all of the tables if the smart phone gets in, yes I'm serious!

Got a few bucks laying around to buy a car. How about the 1968 Mustang used by Steve McQueen in Bullitt. Going up for auction in 2020...

Today, 78 years ago... at 7:55 a.m. Hawaii time, a Japanese dive bomber bearing the red symbol of the Rising Sun of Japan on its wings appears out of the clouds above the island of Oahu. A swarm of 360 Japanese warplanes followed, descending on the U.S. naval base at Pearl Harbor in a ferocious assault. The surprise attack struck a critical blow against the U.S. Pacific fleet and drew the United States irrevocably into World War II. The bombing killed more than 2,300 Americans. It completely destroyed the American battleship U.S.S. Arizona and capsized the U.S.S. Oklahoma. The attack sank or beached a total of twelve ships and damaged nine others. 160 aircraft were destroyed and 150 others damaged. The attack took the country by surprise, especially the ill-prepared Pearl Harbor base.
