I had no idea the movie War Games
had such a big impact on the computer
industry.


I didn't even know what a modem was when I saw the movie. After seeing it, my brother got one and spent hours posting on some forum. Somehow, I think you can relate. It was irritating to me because he hogged up the phone line.

The unused theme song I thought was pretty good.



I would like to add that the opening to War Games was about the best I've ever seen. Overall, War Games is one of my favorite movies. I won't say BEST movies, but favorites.

This is a really neat channel. All kinds of bits of history broken down to an easy to understand level. For when you want to learn the basics and do not really care about a college-level understanding but want to know what you would remember 10 years after the college class.

I didn't know we've only been
friends with the Brits since the
1890's. I thought it went back
50 years before that.

This demonstrates how a dogs brain
is different than ours. They only
see things in a straight line, they
can't think around things like we
can. They can't make comparisons,
they are always in the present moment.

Watch how the dog acts when the
smell of the girl triggers it's memory
and he makes the connection.

We were not enemies, but more like we are with Mexico. Remember, we were competing for a continent. Makes sense.

This is frightening in a way. Bolsters

This made me feel really good. Elvis
and Johnny Mathis were born in
the same year. The only difference
is. Mathis is still performing and E
has been gone since the late 70's.
Mathis is 84 and on tour in 2020.

He was a huge star from the late
50's into the 70's. He still has his
wonder voice, which male singers
usually lose. Does anybody believe
E would still be touring in his 80's?
Mathis is worth $400 mil, he must
love singing because he sure
doesn't have to.

This is him recently:
