…I’m here to confirm it with this:
The people who are starting college this fall across the nation were born in 1985.
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 2 years before 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 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.

Thanks for reminding me that I’m getting older every day 😉
I’m here to help, doll 🙂
I’m starting college this year and…wow, it’s true. But I did watch Mork and Mindy reruns when I was a kid! Eh! Eh!
Cute, Kipp — at least you have good taste in re-runs 😉
I was already old when all that shit happened… I must be ancient now… an amzing post when i sit down to think about.
I’m one of those born in 1985 starting college this year students…lol And those are so so true. Except for the Jaws on. That and Lake Placid give me chills when I’m in the swimming pool. I won’t even dangle my feet of the edge of my float. 😛
