I propose a new meme: Who was Time Magazine's Man/Woman/Couple/Person/Object of the Year for the calendar year in which you were born? Find out here.
I thought this was a great idea until I discovered that for both Rob's and my birth years (1964 and 1967), it was LBJ. It could have been worse. It could have been Hitler (1938). Or Stalin (1939 and 1942). Or Nixon (1971 and 1972). Or The Middle Americans (1969. Also, what?). Wow, they even picked Willy Brandt, back in the days when we still pretended we cared about other countries (1970).
Other weird picks: The generation under 25 (1966). Harlow Curtice (1955. Also, who?). Konrad Adenauer (1953, also, did TIME have a thing for Germany?). The computer (1982). American women (1975). The Endangered Earth (Planet of the Year for 1988!). And, of course, You (2006).
There's also a Canadian version, but I ain't going there.
Maybe this isn't such a great game after all.
