funny coincidence was created by Peter Young

Two years ago, on a Friday, I was working at home and to my surprise I got it finished by the end of the morning, earning me an unexpected early weekend.

I had been using Wikipedia as a starting point (the notes and external references at the and of the pages can be quite helpfull). As a way to 'cool down' I filled in a few random search terms, one of which was the name of some cartoon I remembered seeing once as a kid and never again, no idea why i came into mind.

Yes, that was Ropbotech, but unlike a few years earlier, when I first and last visited the page, now there was a section on 'unfinished projects, one of which had much in common with thar one Robotech cartoon that had actually been aired in the Netherlands...

So I saw Sentinels again and became a fan!

If something not that big coincidentally occurs on a date easy to remember (like a national holiday, or the birthday of someone you now, or..), it gets very easy to remember. It happened to be Friday the thirteenth.

Today, I had two work-related events I could attend. Untill yesterday, I did not know which it would be. The one I'm going to is only in the afternoon, which means that AGAIN, on a Friday half February, I get an unexpected free-half day....

I might have put 'Sentinels' on to remember. But apart from only thinking of this five minutes ago and having to catch the train in an hour, I find that pass-times, among other activities in life, deserve one's full attention. I would not have been in the 'relax'-mood fiction deserves. Still, I find it a funny coincidence.

Remember those old Magnavox Pong consoles, the big yellow ones with black knobs?

I do! I totally had one of those. I played it every morning in between Speed Racer, and some other cartoon that seemed in retrospect to be a lot like GI Joe, only GI Joe wasn't even invented yet so I have no idea WTF it actually was. I played Pong during the Dukes of Hazard cartoon, which pissed me off even at the age of 4 because Boss Hog was always throwing pink money around, and I knew that money wasn't pink.

Looking back, maybe the tint on the tv was just off. You don't notice that when you're MOTHERFUCKING PLAYING PONG
