Wanna feel old? READ THIS.

The people who are starting college this fall 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.
  • Jay Leno has always been on the Tonight Show.
  • Popcorn has always been cooked in the microwave.
  • 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?

The CD was actually introuded in 1984 in Japan, 1985 in the USA. I got my first CD player for Christmas in 1985.

I'm that damn old.

I remember when I gave the lunchlady a dime for my milk at school. How much is it now, half a buck?

I used a typewriter to write a report in the fourth grade. It was awesome, and 2 pages long. It took me two days to type it.
