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 in1993.
They are too young to remember
the space shuttle blowing up.
Their lifetime has always
included AIDS.
Bottle caps have always beenchildproof and plastic.
The CD was introduced
3 years before 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.
Mc Donald's never came
in Styrofoam containers.
They don't have a clue
how to use a typewriter.
Do you feel old yet?
Pass this on to the other old
fogies on your list. Notice the
larger type, that's for those of
you who have trouble reading..
So have a nice day!!!!!
It is good to have friends who
know about these things and
are still alive and kicking!!!!
