2005:  Ahh behold the Xbox 360. It seems like this game console has been around for ages, but it was just five short years ago when Microsoft unleashed this beast to the gaming world. Since it’s official release in 2005, Xbox 360 has brought in well over 1 billion dollars for Microsoft Corporation.

2009:  A year ago today, the government issued a warning ,that without some changes to the system, social security funds would be depleted by 2037; four years sooner than estimated the the previous year. So why is it coming out of my check? Just asking…

1969: And to take it back a little; actress Kim Fields turns 41 today. She is best known for her roles as Tootie on the sitcom Facts of Life and Regine on Living Single. If only living single could be that fun. And what happened to all the black sitcoms? I digressed, my bad.

We hope you learned something, now go out and make your own history great!
