Are you feeling old?  If not, consider this:

*  The people who are starting college this fall
across the nation were born in 1980.

 * They have no meaningful recollection of the
Reagan era.

* They were prepubescent when the Persian Gulf
War was waged.

 * Black Monday 1987 is as significant to them as
the Great Depression.

 * Their world has always included AIDS.

 * Atari predates them, as do vinyl albums and
cassette audiotapes; they  may have heard of an
8-track, but probably never actually seen
(or heard) one.

 * The digital Disc was presented to Wall street
when they were 1 year old.

 * From their earliest years, a camera was
something you used once and threw away.

* As far as they know, stamps have always cost
about 32 cents.

* Few, if any, have lived without an answering

* Few have used a TV set with only 13 channels.

 * Some use the word "clickers" for "remote
control", yet they do not  know why they say it.

*  They were born the year that Walkmen were
introduced by Sony.

 * The expression "you sound like a broken record"
means nothing to them.

 "They have never known a time without MTV, but
you remember when it first went on the air."?
