Welcome, Class of 2011

By Brian | August 24, 2007 | Share on Facebook

Beloit College has released it’s Class of 2011 Mindset list. This is a list of 70 things the incoming college freshmen have always believed to be true. The link has the whole list, of course, but here are my Top Ten:

4. They’ve never “rolled down” a car window.
9. Nelson Mandela has always been free and a force in South Africa.
10. Pete Rose has never played baseball.
15. Russia has always had a multi-party political system.
23. Wal-Mart has always been a larger retailer than Sears and has always employed more workers than GM.
27. Al Gore has always been running for president or thinking about it.
45. They learned about JFK from Oliver Stone and Malcolm X from Spike Lee.
47. High definition television has always been available
55. MTV has never featured music videos.
61. They never saw Johnny Carson live on television.

    Well, thanks a lot, Brian, for enhancing my omnipresent sense of being an old fart. Damn kids these days anyway…
