Just in case you weren’t feeling too old today, this will certainly change things. 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
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
They never heard: ‘Where’s the Beef?’ and ‘I’d walk a mile for a Camel,’ ‘de plane, Boss, de plane.’

They do not care who shot J. R. and have no idea
MacDonald’s never came in Styrofoam containers
They don’t have a clue how to use a typewriter
Do you feel old yet? Notice the larger type, that’s for those of you who have trouble.
