Please come in and welcome to the Tuesday Chatter Cafe. A place where the clock ticks backward and we can chat about what may or may not happen. We dwell on thought-provoking and undeniably doubtful drivel.
1986, a troubled year with some of the worst tragedies in history. The explosion of the Space Shuttle Challenger watched by people worldwide, killing all 7 astronauts aboard, the Soviet Nuclear disaster at Chernobyl Nuclear Power Station, and the mad cow disease in the UK are just a few of the horrific events that happened in 1986.
But there were other notable events that occurred in 1986-
Hands Across America, a large public charity event is held in May. Approximately 6.5 million people participated. The $10. donations were given to local charities to fight poverty.
Mike Tyson becomes the youngest Heavyweight Champion in history
The Oprah Winfrey Show makes its debut in the US
The Soviet Union launches it’s MIR space station
Richard Branson breaks the world record for the fastest crossing of the Atlantic on his 72 ft powerboat, the Virgin Challenger II
Smoking is banned on all public transport including trains, planes, buses, and coaches in the US.
Are we jealous or mediocre
No shows won’t know
Class not dismissed on with the show
More than one hand to clap
Less than two fingers to snap
Great minds work trenches
No more room on benches
As we trolley through space
Last stop’s a perfect place
People hold hands across the land
We’ve much to give to help others live
There’s no smoking on that plane
Nor the bus nor the train
We’ve nothing to lose and a lot to gain
No matter what we do there’s much askew
Have a nice day and toodle-loo
