News events I remember from my childhood and did not understand for a while

News* is a loose term
  1. A man throwing a shoe at George Bush's head
    I did not understand why a man would throw a shoe. I did not understand what George Bush did to make someone want to throw a shoe at him. I did not understand why I found it so funny and to this day still do.
  2. Prince Harry dressing up like a Nazi
    Five year old me: who is Prince Harry. who are the Nazis. what is The Sun why is it for sale at the grocery store
  3. Lance Armstrong
    The yellow bracelets, the doping, why anyone would want to ride a bike for that long.
