“Early” Internet



BBS – “A bulletin board system or BBS is a computer server running software that allows users to connect to the system using a terminal program.” aka a whole bunch of text.



AOL – Here’s an article about it In memoriam: AOL CDs, history’s greatest junk mail. After reading imagine finding boxes of these things in your basement.



ICQ – Here’s the ICQ Wiki. Apparently it is still a thing. The sounds from this program are ingrained in my brain.



Hyperloop



Apparently this was first mentioned by Elon Musk in 2012. He wanted to revolutionize transportation but he seems to have focused more on Tesla and SpaceX than this, well, at least publicly. Here is a link to a 58 page doc about it but if that is too long you can check out the Wiki.



The “Star Trek Episode” of Futurama



The episode I was referring to was the season 4 finale (E12) called “Where No Fan Has Gone Before”. This had almost all of the original series cast except for DeForest Kelly who had died and James Doohan. There was even a TNG cast member Jonathan Frakes.



Simpsons Mysteries



Here is the video I was talking about. It is hard not to fall down the rabbit hole after watching this one.









Simpsons Episodes



“Three Men and a Comic Book” – S2 E21 – This is the one when they show the back room.



“That 90’s Show” – S19 E11



Jurassic Bark



The beloved episode was the second episode of season 5. And here is the song that brought many a tear to the eyes of viewers.
