    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 mind set of this year's (2006) incoming freshmen. Here's this year's list:

    The people who are starting college this fall across the nation were born in 1987.


    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.

    If I ever talk to my kids about what they have and we didn't have I get raised eyebrows and 'oh mum's off about Victorian times again.'

    Hahaha. I love it and it's um so true. Sad but true. A new large rubber band broke at work today. It popped me on the chest. That sucker hurt. Do I need to go get a mammogram? :eek:

    Oh gee thanks, MamaMeg. You are just a youngster. I hope you know that I finished my sophomore year in High School in 1975. I never would have been able to start feeling old without your help. Yeah. Thanks! :biggrin1:

    P. S. You have such a cute, mischievous smile!

    When I was about six years old my mother told me about not having television. Being an avid watcher of "The Flintstones" I thought this was the coolest thing and started asking what it was like living with the dinosaurs.

    She was not pleased.
