On This Day...
... in history, Babe Ruth hit his final home run in 1935. The big 714. What we purists call the Rorer. On a lesser note, on this day in 1977 Star Wars opened.

For those of you who adore the Star Wars canon, I would give $10 to get my hands on the Babe's 42 ounce Louisville Slugger and beat George Lucas' forelock into his forehead.
I would call the big 714 a Quaalude, but that's just me.
I thought a Rorer was a pharmacutical Quaalude
That forelock nailing moment would be so gratifying... and so well deserved too.
Come now, he did produce THX1138.
I'd use a lesser bat, though. No telling how thick that skull is, and you wouldn't want to break something of value.
