Fact of the Moment
It takes an estimated 2,893 licks to reach the center of a Tootsie Roll pop.

History of the Moment
AtariArchives.org has lots of old computer magazines scanned in, including most recently The Best of Creative Computing Vol. 2, circa 1977. Interesting to see what computing was like over 25 years ago! I also have admired its sister site, the Classic Computer Magazine Archive, which has a full run of my old favorite "Antic"...MAN does seeing the covers for that magazine around 85-86 bring me back...
