Wacky Wednesday, what happened the year you were born?

Another month of referrals, and we are not included in this batch of referrals again. Just when we thought we were finally gonna see her face, no such luck. This roller coaster ride is not a fun one, and I hope we get to get off of it soon.

To take our minds of of the non-fun, I thought we'd like to see what happened the year we were born, so take a moment and find out. It's pretty funny and interesting to see. Enjoy!!
