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 1986.

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.
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 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.

And finally...

They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter.

Well, thanks for THAT!
You may be getting old, but you are still hilarious.

Ouch! That stung a bit, but it was very funny.

I still have my old Remington (typewriter) in the closet but I've forgotten how to use it. Does that make me young again? :)
