    easy one..."Lucky Strike Means Fine Tobacco" for Lucky Strike cigarettes. That's taking up valauable space in my brain that I wish I could use for other, more useful info.

    Next question...why did they change Lucky's from a green package to the white and red in the 40's?

    ;-)

    No...it has more to do with the time period when it happened.

    Let's see if we can keep this going. Fill in the missing product name from the following ad phrase:

    "You use XXXXX. Don't you wish everyone did?"

    ;-)

    EDIT: that quote is slightly "off", but close enough.

    ...more valuable organic-RAM wasted!

    That's it!

    ...this is too easy with the Internet available. Why can't I get info about really useful stuff, like the forgotten model number of the 9-year-old rack in the server room?

    I accidentally edited out the part of my post where I promised I didn't Google I said Scope first (mouthwash) but then I remembered all the people in the elevator. That was a pretty easy one though, for anyone over 35.
