    A Sense of History?
    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 that years incoming freshmen.

    Here is this year's list:

    The people who are starting college this fall across the nation were born in 1982.
    They have no meaningful recollection of the Reagan Era and probably did not know he had ever been shot.
    They were prepubescent when the Persian Gulf War was waged. 
    Black Monday, 1987 is as significant to them as the Great Depression.
    There has been only one Pope. 
    They were 11 when the Soviet Union broke apart and do not remember the Cold War.
    They have never feared a nuclear war.
    They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up.
    Tianamen Square means nothing to them. 
    Bottle caps have always been screw off and plastic.
    Atari predates them, as do vinyl albums.
    The expression you sound like a broken record means nothing to them.
    They have never owned a record player.
    They have likely never played Pac Man and have never heard of Pong.
    They may have never heard of an 8 track. 
    The Compact Disc was introduced when they were 1 year old.
    As far as they know, stamps have always cost about 33 cents.
    They have always had an answering machine.
    Most have never seen a TV set with only 13 channels, nor have they seen a black-and-white TV.
    They have always had cable.
    There has always been VCRs, but they have no idea what BETA is.
    They cannot fathom not having a remote control.
    They were born the year that Walkmen were introduced by Sony.
    Roller-skating has always meant inline for them.
    Jay Leno has always been on the Tonight Show.
    They have no idea when or why Jordache jeans were cool.
    Popcorn has always been cooked in the microwave.
    They have never seen Larry Bird play.
    They never took a swim and thought about Jaws.
    The Vietnam War is as ancient history to them as WWI, WWII and the Civil War.
    They have no idea that Americans were ever held hostage in Iran.
    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 walked a mile for a Camel, or "de plane! de plane!"
    They do not care who shot J.R. and have no idea who J.R. is.
    The Titanic was found? They thought we always knew where it was.
    Michael Jackson has always been white.
    Kansas, Chicago, Boston, America, and Alabama are places, not groups.
    McDonalds never came in Styrofoam containers.
    There has always been MTV.
    They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter.

    BILL GATES' 
    11 RULES THAT STUDENTS DO NOT LEARN IN SCHOOL

    In Bill Gates' new book (Business @ The Speed of  Thought), he lays out 11 rules that students do not learn in high school or college, but should. He argues that our feel-good, politically-correct teachings have created a generation of kids with no concept of reality who are set up for failure in the real world.
     

    RULE  1  -  Life is not fair; get used to it.

    RULE  2  - The world won't care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

    RULE  3  - You will NOT make 40 thousand dollars a year right out of high school. 
    You won't be a vice president with a car phone, until you earn both.

    RULE  4  - If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss. He doesn't have tenure.

    RULE  5  - Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity.  Your grandparents had a different word for burger flipping, they called it opportunity.

    RULE  6  - If you mess up, it's not your parents' fault, So don't whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

    RULE  7 - Before you were born, your parents weren't as boring as they are now. 
    They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you are.  So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parents' generation, try "delousing" the clothes in your own room.

    RULE  8 - Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life has not.  In some schools they have abolished failing grades; they will ask as many times as you want to get the right answer. This doesn't bear the slightest resemblance to 
    ANYTHING in real life.

    RULE  9 - Life is not divided into semesters.  You don't get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you find yourself. Do that on your own time.

    RULE 10 -Television is NOT real life!  In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

    RULE 11 - Be nice to nerds.  Chances are you'll end up working for one.
