18th July 1976: Nadia Comăneci scores a Perfect 10 in Gymnastics
Perfect 10 refers to a score of 10.00 for a single routine in artistic gymnastics, which was once thought to be unattainable—particularly at the Olympic Games—under the code of points set by the International Gymnastics Federation (FIG). The first person to score a perfect 10 at the Olympic Games was Romanian Nadia Comăneci, at the 1976 Games in Montreal. Note that she got a 10 at a preceding competition, the 1976 American Cup, for floor exercise. So it was not the first time that a 1(.)00 was displayed for her score. This may explain her not confused reaction at the Olympics. Other women who accomplished this feat at the Olympics include Mary Lou Retton in 1984 and Daniela Silivaș in 1988. The first man to score a perfect 10 was Alexander Dityatin, at the 1980 Olympics in Moscow.
The FIG changed its code of points in 2006. There are now different top scores, all greater than 10, for the various events, based upon difficulty and artistic merit; there is no consistent perfect score.

3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Being older, I have clear ideas about relationships - I cannot ever imagine being, and find utterly appalling, the status of "it's complicated". You are either "in" or "dumped"! I do not envy those for whom things just aren't that clear cut. It seems to this avatar a way to make your life more difficult than necessary. Son for example, who traveled 1300 miles to get "closure" appears to be more confused than ever!
I'm very fortunate to be in a relationship with a very simple dynamic - Missus utterly worships me, and I like that! I am now so used to being utterly worshiped that nothing less would do! I can consequently get on with my very uncomplicated life, knowing exactly what I want and what I'm doing and why I'm doing it.
