You may not believe it, but today is a celebrated day in GameCola’s long and varied history. October 21st is one of GameCola’s most important—if also most often forgotten—holidays. It’s a time for reflection; a time for remembrance of things past while most people are thinking about the future. After reading through the details below, I’m sure you’ll see why this is such an important day of the year here on our Actual Internet Website (and YouTube channel, GCDotNet).

If you’re wondering why history stops in 2009, maybe it’s something you should add to your traditional October 21st Reflection List. Don’t forget to burn it in the pure flame of a red candle when you’re done!
