Some events in history are so momentous that we remember exactly where we were when we first heard the news. For me, the answer to this question is usually - I was in the lounge room where we keep the television.
However, in the future when people ask where you were when you heard about this, you will be forced to admit - I was sitting adjacent to my computer, reading The ShadowLands.
UPDATE: Here are the subjects in their heyday. Come on - nobody remembers?
