    Anyone remember a tv show from way back days Max Headroom? One episode that stuck in my brain from that show was how television had become 22 of 30 minutes were adverts, and they were debating if anyone would notice if they added another advert every half hour. I seem to remember this show every time I watch Discovery channel, and realize i just fast forwarded through 7 minutes of ads after 5 min of programming. :))

    So I found out what happened to some of these old brands. Pabst bought the names. Wonder where they brew this stuff?

    "Everything invented before you were born has always existed; everything after you turn 30 is going to be the downfall of society".

    Can't recall where I heard that one, but the "I love Lucy" answer made me think of it again.
