Pseudoephedrine (commonly as PSE) is a sympathomimetic amine commonly used as a decongestant. The salts pseudoephedrine hydrochloride and pseudoephedrine sulfate are found in many over-the-counter preparations either as single-ingredient preparations, or more commonly in combination with antihistamines, paracetamol (acetaminophen) and/or ibuprofen. Sudafed is a trademark for a common brand which contains pseudoephedrine hydrochloride, though Sudafed PE does not. Cirrus contains pseudoephedrine in conjunction with cetirizine (an antihistamine).
The Breakfast Club is a 1985 American teen film written and directed by John Hughes. The storyline follows five teenagers (each a member of a different high school clique) as they spend a Saturday in detention together and come to realize that they are all deeper than their respective stereotypes. The film has become a cult classic and has had a tremendous influence on many coming-of-age films since then. It was shot entirely in sequence. Shooting began on March 28, 1984 and ended in May 1984.
1985 commercial for Shreadded Wheat.
Shredded wheat is a breakfast cereal made from whole wheat. It comes in two sizes, bite sized (3⁄4 × 1 in), and full size, which may be broken into small pieces before milk is added.
Both sizes are available in a frosted variety, which has one side coated with sugar and usually gelatin. Some manufacturers have produced “filled” versions of the bite-size cereal containing a raisin at the center, or apricot or cranberry filling.
In the United States, shredded wheat is most heavily advertised and marketed by Post Cereals, which acquired the product in 1993 through its parent company, Kraft Foods, buying it from its long-time producer Nabisco. Kellogg’s sells eight varieties of miniature, or bite-sized, shredded wheat cereal. Natural and organic manufacturer Barbara’s Bakery makes an all-natural version of shredded wheat. In the United Kingdom, the Shredded Wheat brand is owned by Cereal Partners, a Nestle/General Mills company, although there are many generic versions and variants by different names. It was first made in the US in 1893, while UK production began in 1926.
“Never Eat Shredded Wheat” is a common childhood mnemonic for remembering the Cardinal Points on a compass.
1985 commercial for the cool looking Nissan Silvia Turbo ZX.
The Nissan Silvia is the name given to the company’s long-running line of sport coupes based on the Nissan S platform. Although recent models have shared this chassis with other vehicles produced by Nissan (most notably the European 200SX and North American 240SX in the S13 and S14 generations, and 180SX in the Japanese market), the name Silvia is not interchangeable with the chassis codes.
