I'll take the bait on this one - I have a couple of stone artifacts from Barkley West, South Africa that date to 500,000 BP.

I have some oil in my car. How old is that?

I was in 2nd grade music class at St Charles Catholic grade school when they made the announcement that President Kennedy had been shot and killed over the PA system. I remember it pretty well.

I was a freshman at NEO A&M in Miami, my home town. I'd gone home for lunch and was watching "As The World Turns" with my mother. I went into the bathroom, then Mother came in and told me the news. I went back to school and saw my history teacher. I told her - she didn't believe me and as much as accused me of lying to her. I went on to my math class. We saw many students walking by outside...their teachers had dismissed class...but our teacher kept on teaching. I don't recall whether we were upset about the president or just mad because the guy wouldn't let us leave. In World History the next day, my teacher apologized to me in front of the whole class.

Good one. Now, I've often wondered what else was on the tube opposite ATWT. Another soap? Dannys Day, perhaps? Just seems everyone had CBS on at the time.
