    As a new member, I was looking around for a bit more information about the club, and couldn't find too much. I was thinking it would be cool if the About BAR section had a bit of a history. Doesn't have to be complicated or even very long. It could include anything from long running frags, to note worthy guest speakers, to club milestones. I don't know any of these things, so I did the next best thing and made stuff up!

    505million years ago - first corals evolve, official start of DBTC
    1852- PG&E founded, spelling doom for future BAR members
    1973 - BAR dreamed up, decide to wait for invention of internet before proceeding.
    2005 - new forum, hurray!
    2006 - Ghost of Jacques Cousteau guest speaker at greatest BAR meeting
    2009 - Gimmito starts longest thread ever
    2012 - Mayans correctly predict end of world when BAR members (un)successfully utilize nuclear fission to create mini-sun over frag tank
