1985 was a cruel, cruel year...

New Coke turned the world of sugary beverages on its ear. A joint French-American expedition located the wreck of the RMS Titanic, giving Terminator director James Cameron all the pretext he needed. Bill Gates and Microsoft released Windows 1.1.

And for one, glorious - ahem - shining Wednesday evening, Jonathan Coulton's Monkey Shines made television history.



Let's treasure the memory, all of us...
