The year is 1986. We didn’t know it yet, but events would unfold that would become turning points in our world’s history.
Kodak leaves the instant camera business, ensuring that years later we would shake it like a polaroid picture. An accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant irradiates the city of Pripyat. Pixar Animation Studios opens for business. The Transformers: The Movie opens in theaters, kills off Optimus Prime, and introduces us to a bearded, massive, rotund, planet-eating robot voiced by Orson Welles.
The irony is not lost on anybody.
