Oh me, oh my! Just pinch me! What in the world could I possibly be so excited about? A huge promotion, winning the lottery, getting a brand new car?! Nope. None of those things. It starts with an R and ends in a Baby... That's right... the ROYAL BABY!!!

That means that in a short 500 years we have America as a free democratic nation, railroads across the U.S., planes, cars and iPhones. It's pretty amazing what can be accomplished in 500 years.
