1900 as a whole century is so wild to me like it started off without people having sliced bread and it ended with seinfeld on TV 

I had a wonderful friend who, at the time of the first space shuttle flight, was early 90′s. Gertrude and I watched the landing, and she had this look of outright wonder on her face through the whole thing.  She told me afterward that she had lived at the most magical time – humanity had gone from horse and buggies to people in space, and she’d seen it all.
