    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 1991.
    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 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.


    McDonald'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!!!!
