Jan 25 Alicia Keys was born


A year in the early 1980s, notable for the fact that absolutely nothing memorable happened in it except that MZL was born. And isn't that sort of memorable in it's way? The answer, sadly, is no. Perhaps more importantly, John Coltrane's son, Manfred invents the umbrella. Oscar Wilde took a really long dump, and his great-granddaughter, Kim Wilde, becomes famous (in her own right) with the song "Kids in America."

  • It is said to be common knowledge among time-travel enthusiasts (who have rather conveniently and suspiciously never been seen) that stopping in 1982 in Killearn, a small commuter village 15 miles north of Glasgow, is actually The Worst Rest-Break possible, as though nothing memorable happened anywhere else, nothing AT ALL happened in Killearn, not even a hiccup. Many choose to continue to time-travel to a more interesting year before stopping to have coffee and a short stroll, which has led to the edges of 1982, December and January, becoming blackspots for time-machine collisions as the travellers grow drowsier. It has recently been proposed that a time bypass be erected over the year, and this is currently being debated in the House of Lords as some have proposed that the bypass be extended to avoid 1983 as well, which would mean nobody'd have to hear anything more about the SDP.

1983 c.e.[edit]

In late November 1982 c.e., Pope John Paul II--accepted leader and CEO of the holy roman catholic congolmerate--was informed by the chief engineer of the R&D department that the Gregorian calendar we had all been using for almost 4 decades, was utterly and completely de-funked and in doing so, fucked a goat. Not only that, but it was defunct. According to their calculations, the growing BMI of the American populus had resulted in a slow decay in the Earth's rotational speed. 365 and a quarter complete rotations of the earth had become more than enough to circle our fat asses around the sun. As a result, we had gotten further ahead in history than we realized. With his newly invented knowledgePope JP2 set to work forgin a new calendar. This turned out to be harder than he expected, so he decided instead that every so often, the date would just need to be changed. We call this a leap day and it happens every 4 years when the leader of the HRCC blows white smoke up the papal chimney (I thank you) and we all set our clocks ahead. Of course, noone but the Pope and Burt Reynolds knew anything about this yet, so in early October of the same year, Pope JP2 (and of course, Burt Reynolds), unvailed to the anxiously awaiting share holders, the very second ever papally-induced temporal hickup. Killer Tomatoes Strike Back aired on TV during this time, but nobody took any notice. To compensate for the rapidly decaying accuracy of the old calendar which had so arrogantly been ignored for so many years, the first leap day was a big one, and lasted 412. Yup, we skipped right over 1983. That's why you never meet anyone born in 1983. The year never happened.

The replacement, Walter Mondale, was polling strongly until his campaign made an ill-advised stop in Bhopal, India, where Mondale was overcome by poisoned gas (ironically, a larger gas explosion in Bhopal later that year killed enough Indians that it actually made the news here).

“This was, by far, the best year EVER to get waxed.”

~ Black Sabbath on 1988

1988 was the year Charles Nelson Reilly was elected President of the United States of America. He was later forced to resign in shame after the Han Solo Scandal. It is also the year that the Sheep Strikes started.

Alternatively, 1988 is a novel written by George Orwell and was published in 1988. He finished it in 1984, but said, "1984 was soooo four years ago!" and changed the title out of extreme happiness when his manuscript finally got dug out of an extremely nice editor's slush pile.

A number of people were born within the year (although many believe everyone went sterile after Kobe Bryant's Birthday Bonanza the previous year on the 23rd of August) Including:Spencer Levine,Devon Merril, Omar Zakkay, and Grant Alward.

  • Origins: 198x lies between 197something and 199... 2? in the Calendar of Doubt to which all sentient beings assign events whose actual dates of occurrence they (a:) never knew but pretend they did or (b:) genuinely once knew but have since forgotten. 198x was created in February 1990 as soon as the pretentiousness level of referring to the previous decade dropped below 8.5 points.
  • Components: 198x contains the early 1980s, the mid-1980s and the late 80s. It is sometimes erroneously ascribed occurrences from the early 1990s in much the same way that much of the 1970s are mistaken for the 1960s.
  • Troubleshooting: 198x can be solved to a accuracy of 365.24 solar days by groups of eight or more people which are statistically obliged to contain at least one memory freak who can pinpoint any occasion in any decade to within one week by recalling the song which was at the top of the charts when the event occurred.
