POPULAR GAME REQUIRES COORDINATION

op

Operation is a game of physical skill that tests players’ hand-eye coordination
and fine motor skills. The game’s prototype was invented in 1964 by John
Spinello, a University of Illinois industrial design student at the time, who sold
his rights to the game to Milton Bradley for a sum of $500. Initially produced 
by Milton Bradley in 1965, Operation is currently made by Hasbro, with an
estimated franchise worth of $40 million.

oral surgery for himself. At last report, he is presently still working.

THE KING MET THE FAB FOUR ON THIS DAY

 emb
Fan photo of The Beatles leaving Elvis’ mansion after their meeting.

Elvis Presley played host to The Beatles in his Bel Air, Los Angeles home on Friday evening August 27, 1965. They met for the first and only time. There are no known pictures of them together because the press had not been invited and no recordings
were made of their meeting and impromptu jam session as part of the fundamental  ground rules and planning that had been made three days in advance.
