Honorable mentions belong to David Daniel (who adds, "and modern culture truly began"), Jason HenselJade WalkerJax JacobsenCarrie GrayCindi LashLeah Traxel (who reflects, "And what a glorious discovery it was"), Edward TennerJosh BlackKen WalkerHollywood HighlandsRon TillotsonRon Casalotti (who notes "Not Chicago pizza, not Boston pizza, not Philly pizza.
