    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 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.





    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

    Hell yeah, redneck jewlery.

    Do you think kids know what;
    "...stepped on a pop-top
    cut my heal, had to cruise on back home"
    means?


    What got me was my wife and I were talking about something and I said it had just happened, while she said it was a long time ago. I said "No it was only a couple years ago, I remember, it was when I was in H.S." She said "You're right, but that was 20 years ago." :doah:

    33,45,78..

    There is a song Kathy Mattea sings,called 33,45,78--about this subject..it mentions old vinyl records,percolators,and rotary phones..funny thing is,as I was listening to that song in my garage,I was looking at MY rotary phone!..yes,I still have one!!..Its scary to realize just how old your really getting... :(

    But lately my computer won't work right if I have the rotary phone in my shop plugged in(I'm thinking the cable to the phone is bad,or maybe the phone isn't compatible with pushbutton phones :confused: --funny it used to work OK..now if its connected,the other phones wont ring more than once when someone calls,and it slows the computer to a crawl,it has dial up--weird! :screwy: :screwy: ) . :crazy:
