My how time flies when you're having fun.1969 was 50 years ago, y'all. If you watched the ABC Tuesday night limited series '1969', you've no doubt gone down memory lane a couple of times in the last couple of months. It's a fascinating look back at what many people consider a much better time.

A lot of the crazy things in life got their start that year, and I thought I would list off some, for a little nostalgia this summer. Be sure to check out the whole list from Mental Floss.
