This, too, shall pass.
[Error: unknown template qotd]Star Trek, on ASU's Univac 1110. I loved the game so much, it sucked me over to the Dark Side, and I ended up becoming a computer programmer (although I never really became a gamer). (Note: at the time I discovered this game, the whole notion of Dark Side didn't really exist, as this was before the first Star Wars movie was released).

I like standardized tests, But then, I usually do well on standardized tests.

I think standardized tests accurately and reliably indicate a student's proficiency at taking standardized tests...

The Roadrunner cartoons, hands down. Followed by Bugs Bunny.

If we move from childhood to adolescence, then Rocky and Bullwinkle get added to the list...

The last decade provided incontrovertible proof that conservative "policies" are bad for the country, and just don't work.

Speaking from experience, I'd say one is most likely to consider whichever option is most affordable. All of the options are expensive, and one quickly finds that medical insurance rarely covers the medical options.

And as an aside, I recommend considering IVF *and* adoption, or surrogacy *and* adoption.

Just about any of the Springsteen concerts I've attended has to count as a contender.

There was the first one - Phoenix, 1974 (I think), the Celebrity Theater (which I understand no longer exists).

The Celebrity was set up as a Theater in the Round, with a turntable stage in the middle of the audience where the band set up and played. The turntable turned one direction the first half of the show: and reversed direction for the last half of the show. I don't think there was a bad seat anywhere in the house.

For that show, the E-Street Band consisted of Clarence Clemons, Danny Federici, Gary Tallent, David Sancious (piano), and Ernest Carter (drums). And some guy named Bruce played guitar and sang.

Partway through the show, Bruce broke a string on his guitar. The band shifted seamlessly into an extended jazzy piece, was Bruce replaced the string (wisecracking all the way).

The other major memory from that night was the intro to Thunder Road was the intro to Thunder Road - "This is the land of peace, justice, and no mercy - Thunder Road."

I suspect the series of concerts at Gammage Auditorium in 1976 would be a close second. It featured the lineup that would persist for a decade or two, and the memorable phrase "There's gonna be some damage in Gammage!" (Gammage had/has a famous flying balcony. Partway through the show, Bruce pointed at the balcony, which had several tens of feet of vertical excursion induced by audience members jumping up and down in unison).
