I'm Not OLD!

Ok, last friday I was posting about how did 20 years past so quickly, and how some things can make you feel old!

Well, here we are again!

This was e-mailed to me and I thought I'd make everyone else feel old too share.


Each year the staff at Beloit College in Wisconsin puts together a list to try to give the faculty a sense of the mindset of this year's incoming freshmen.

Here's this year's list:
  • The people who are starting college this fall across the nation were born in 1989.
  • They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up.
  • Their lifetime has always included AIDS.
  • Bottle caps have always been screw off and plastic.
  • The CD was introduced the year they were born.
  • They have always had an answering machine.
  • They have always had cable.
  • They cannot fathom not having a remote control.
  • Jay Leno has always been on the Tonight Show.
  • Popcorn has always been cooked in the microwave.
  • They never took a swim and thought about Jaws.
  • They can't imagine what hard contact lenses are.
  • They don't know who Mork was or where he was from.
  • They never heard: 'Where's the Beef?', 'I'd walk a mile for a Camel', or 'de plane, Boss, de plane.'
  • They do not care who shot J. R. and have no idea who J. R. even is.
  • McDonald's never came in Styrofoam containers.
  • They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter.


Do you feel old yet? See, I told ya!
