  1. The day Amazon opened (July 16, 1995) is closer to the first Moon landing by astronauts (July 20, 1969) than it is to now.

2. Amy Winehouse’s album Frank (October 23, 2003) was released closer to Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the USA (June 4, 1984) than now.

3. The first live-action Transformers movie was released (June 28, 2007) closer to the release date of Batman Returns (June 19, 1992) than today.

4. Charlie Chaplin (died December 25, 1977) was alive to see [Star Wars](https://www.boxofficemojo.com/title/tt0076759/?ref=boser1) (released May 25, 1977).

5. The first 3D movie came out in the silent era.

6. Fauja Singh ran a marathon at the age of 100. If F Scott Fitzgerald, the author of The Great Gatsby, ran a marathon at the age of 100, he would have done it in 1996.

7. Singh is still alive today at the age of 112 (or at least I can’t find any news of his death), which is like if Fitzgerald was alive in 2008.
