Just in case you weren't feeling too old today, this will certainly change things.. The people who are starting college this fall across the nation were born in 1987.
They are too young to remember the first space shuttle blowing up on liftoff.
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 ha s 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.

My kid saw a picture of me at his age doing an assignment sitting at my typewriter... he asked "wheres the screen?" when I told him it wasn't a computer, it was a typewriter, he said "what the heck is that???" Man I felt old...

Nope, it was Doc Severinsen at the head of the Tonight Show Band
Doc is an AMAZING trumpet player and conducts "Big Band" swing music. Real impressive dude.
