Grown-Ass Men

We’re all getting so old, aren’t we?

Today, February 28, 2009, our old friend Colin finally leaves his teenage years in the past. That’s right, he’s a whopping 20 years old. But, sadly, Colin’s birth is not the single greatest thing to happen on February 28. I know, it’s hard to believe, but let’s take a look:

Today, in 1854, the Republican Party of the United States was formed. In 1861 Colorado became a territory. In 1939 someone found the word “dord” (which still isn’t a word) in Webster’s dictionary, and some serious shit went down. In 1940 the first basketball game to be televised was played. In 1983 the final episode of M*A*S*H aired, and it is still the most-watched episode in history. In 1991 the Gulf War ended today. And, of course, who could forget that earthquake in 2001? Colin shares his birthday with several notable historic figures, such as Benjamin Wadsworth, Brian Jones, Gilbert Gottfied and Mario Andretti.

Actually, you know what? In retrospect, I’m gonna give it to him. None of that history is that great. After all, who knows what the world would be like without Colin? Top scientists insure us that it would be a cold, dark world, but no one really knows how bad it would be. But a world without Mario Andretti?

Anyway, happy birthday C-Man.

Ooh, and here’s a “gift.” I put a rejected song from Robo Jockeys on the SLXP MySpace. Enjoy.
