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 1983. 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. Michael Jackson has
always been white. 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 in your life.

Thanks, Mitzi. I already have IT in my neck and can hardly clean beds today. I needed to be reminded how old I really am!

Pam,
We are not old, we are just maturing (physically, I'll never grow old mentally)

man, those hit close to home. Ouch!

My children cannot fathom a kitchen without a microwave, no video games, no cell phones.

I remember heating baby bottles in a saucepan, the first atari games, and party line telephones. My oh my, I AM getting old!!!
