This is Weird…

The people who are starting college this fall across the nation
were born in 1987.

They are too young to remember the first space shuttle blowing
up on liftoff.

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 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.

    All of those items were some of the greatest things in out generation. Now if we could just keep up the newest fads of text messg., etc. we might survive another decade of “Remeber When”.
