A link I found on my friend Melissa’s site:
Things Other People Accomplished When They Were Your Age a site that lets you plug in your age and see a list of things that people had already achieved when they were your age. For me, since I’m turning 36 this coming Sunday:
Barthelemy Thimmonier developed the world’s first practical sewing machine.
Walter Hunt devised a modern sewing machine.
Benjamin Franklin invented the Franklin stove.
Robert Jarvik invented a pneumatically powered heart.
German chemist Friedrich August Kekule discovered the ring structure of the benzene molecule in a dream.
English navigator George Vancouver explored Vancouver island.
I think I speak for everyone when I say to the developers of this site: Fuck you.
