“Dan vs. Dave. 1992 Olympics in Barcelona. They were everywhere! Such a big marketing campaign. Then Dan didn’t qualify. Hard to explain what a big deal that was to most jr high boys at the time. Reebok literally had a super bowl commercial about the big rivalry.”

“‘Cats’ the movie. Based on one of the longest-running Broadway shows, with a star-studded cast, it should have been a hit. But then, well, people saw it.”

“When the Segway came out I remember an expert on Good Morning America saying that they would design cities around it in the future, instead of cars.

Before it was called a Segway it was referred to as ‘the thing’ and new information about it was treated like [email protected]#king nuclear codes.”

#8 good device but VERY expensive, far better than trotinetes. The price dictated the end of the segway.

Bertha,

It's not bad that you liked the movie. Not everyone has good taste.

It was just a joke... But what exactly do I have bad taste in exactly?

I thought #1 was going to be about "Avatar." I guess it didn't "flop" in that it made a ton of money, but it was an awful movie. Waaaaaay too political and preachy. It didn't have a genuine, or even original story. I hope he never makes the sequels he had planned.

I loved watching action movies on my big screen in 3D and was very sad when the plug got pulled. I was hoping that it would evolve into HD 3D porn.
