I liked that course. I was so good at doing the drift boost and that was the best course for it... I'd usually end up lapping everyone else at least once.

And if you don't think it is "the little blue pill", watch the Fiat commercial that was on the SuperBowl this week. And Bob Dole did an ad for it where he talked about "his little blue friend".

I agree with kybreeze - Viagra is the "little blue pill" and nexium is purple. Also, can you accept alternate forms of sarin? Serin, Seren, saren, etc.

Surprised that Magic Johnson's 1991 HIV announcement isn't on this! I thought it would for sure be one of the top 10 things to happen in the 1990's!

I usually don't agree with these kinds of complaints, but I think *69 is just an order of magnitude too obscure for anyone not of the US. I don't quizzes being weighted towards US trivia, but at least make it something someone not of the US has the slightest chance of getting. For the record the number was *10# in Australia.
