    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 uni this year 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?

  6. What? There's Columbia....

    Er, no it wasn't. 1983 according to Philips.

    So have I, and I was born in the 50s.

    Dunno why. They're still available today, and are often prescribed when soft lenses are not suitable for the patient.

    Well, given the amount of recycled pap on pay TV this would come as a surprise, particularly for those who subscribe to Austar/Foxtel.

    That can be said for a lot of people born in the 50s-70s too...

    Well, I'm glad he didn't.
