Kids these days

Do you want to feel old? Yes, you say? Okay, read the Beloit College Mindset List for the Class of 2014. This list describes the world of today's college freshmen. For example,

  • John McEnroe has never played professional tennis.
  • DNA fingerprinting and maps of the human genome have always existed.
  • Computers have never lacked a CD-ROM disk drive.
  • Czechoslovakia has never existed.
  • Second-hand smoke has always been an official carcinogen.
  • Potato has always ended in an 'e' in New Jersey per vice presidential edict.
  • They never twisted the coiled handset wire aimlessly around their wrists while chatting on the phone.
