Thread: If you are starting college this year:

    Default If you are starting college this year:

    Beloit College puts together this list every year. The people who are starting college this fall across the nation were born in 1992.

    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 2 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 "Boss, 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.

    One of my sons was born in 1990. Our cordless phone went out once and I brought up a dial phone from the basement to replace it. He was trying to call a buddy and must have stared at that thing for a couple of minutes before turning to us and asking how to use it. It didn't even cross my mind that they wouldn't know how to dial a phone.

    I love these lists but some of these are way off. If they were born in 1992, a lot of these things happen up a deccade or more before they were born. I finished college 20 years ago and never heard ""I'd walk a mile for a Camel"

    It has an entirely different meaning in the Middle East.

    It may have been cool to experience all of the things listed, but I have to say that they are light years better off than those of us who actually had to hear the phrase, "De plane, de plane."

    I'm still haunted by that whole image...
