Every year, Beloit College posts its list of what the freshman class of that year, in this case 2011, doesn’t recognize. For example, the class of 2011 was born in 1989, so they do not know about the Berlin Wall. It is always a big deal in education circles and I am sure you can do a Google search and find hundreds of other blogs posting about it.
Other examples from the list:
They never “rolled down” a car window.
Michael Moore has always been angry and funny.
They have grown up with bottled water.
But I have also found this list. Kids born in 2007 will be members of the class of 2029. Some of it is risque as my mother would say.
Role-playing games have always been played on the Internet. What’s a 20-sided die?
All TVs are “high definition.”
They’ve never had to pull over for directions.
Cafes have always been a place to work on a laptop.
The “dot-com bust” means as much to them as the Great Depression.
Ipods have always come with a phone.
Global warming has always been a major voter issue, and Republicans have always acknowledged it.
Vice presidents have never been useless.
Quarters have never all looked the same.
Abe Vigoda is still alive.
I am sure “Fish” will always live on.
