Seriously, though, it's a natural date to center things around temporally, since that's when time travel was invented first successfully tested.

Time travel was invented on November 5, 1955. However, it wasn't actually tested until October 26, 1985. It took nearly 30 years and the entire Brown family fortune to realize the vision.

Just rewatched BTTF last night for the first time in years and realized my mistake. Thanks for cleaning me up.

Click the top right and do "hide post". Then mark the ad as repetitive or irrelevant. Do this a few times and the FB algo should stop showing you them.

ao fan's fb friend - "Work has been insanely busy. I’m not complaining. I recognize I am blessed to be busy and employed.
So, my husband noticed that I am constantly being IMd and called all day long plus lots of Skype meetings and my company-issued Bluetooth only occasionally and randomly worked. So he just went and ordered me a pair of Air Pods just to make my life easier. I love them !
Then today he saw that from the moment I logged on at 7:30am it was a complete nonstop fire drill and around 10am he came down from his office and made me a cup of coffee exactly as I like it (black, no sugar and a splash of almond milk creamer)
He is not the dude who goes for the over the top romantic gestures. I’m not into that either. I feel that is mostly for show. My guy just tries to find ways to make my life easier and happier. I love him so very much"

Are you just jealous b/c no one bring you coffee?

Side note: I go out to the store every morning, even when I'm commuting and on the weekends, to get my wife a coffee and the paper. She hasn't posted it on FB, but from time to time she likes to tell her friends how great her husband is...

I belong to a private/commercial photography group on Facebook. Presumably conservative members of the group keep on getting triggered when people post pictures with "Black Lives Matter" or "I can't breath" in them. I think a few of them have managed to get themselves booted from the group so far.
