Another fun fact for you: in a way, I share a birthday with Pac-Man. The one who eats dots, and not the NFL player. Turns out that Pac-Man was released in Japan on October 10, 1979, a scant two years after I was born.

Puck-Man, as it was originally known, wasn’t an enormous hit at the start. But soon after it got renamed and launched in the US, people had PacMan Fever.

Hard to believe that it was that long ago. Pac-Man will be my age in a couple of years and hopefully, like me, he’ll still be chasing ghosts and eating dots.
