Harvard Today: April 3, 2014

It’s Thursday! In honor of Throwback Thursday, here are some throwbacks to some of our favorite childhood TV shows and movies:

1) #tbt to whenever Jimmy Neutron would say “Brain Blast”

2) #tbt to whenever Kevin would miraculously turn everything back to normal and then run away whenever his parents confronted him at the end of every Home Alone movie

3) #tbt to when the graphics from The Nightmare Before Christmas actually scared us a little bit but we didn’t want to admit it

4) #tbt to those times after we had a fight with our parents and were afraid we would switch bodies with them, just like Lindsay Lohan did in Freaky Friday

IN THE ATMOSPHERE

It’s going to be sunny and a high of 53 degrees today! Who’s taking bets on how long this streak of long weather is going to last?
