Just read a tweet:

The Berlin Wall stood for 10316 days and today it has been gone for 10316 days.


The painful part is that I can remember as a kid going to the Saturday movie matinée and watching the newsreel footage of the wall being built, as a parent sitting with my daughter and watching live TV footage of it coming down, and now I look at my grandkids and think: when did I become so old that three generations of history have passed on by...
