Just in case you weren't feeling too old today, this will certainly change things. 

  • The people who started university  this year were born in 1992.  
  • 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 3 years before they were born. 
  • They have always had an answering machine 
  • They cannot fathom not having a remote control. 
  • 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 do not care who shot J. R. And have no idea who J. R. even is.
  • They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter.
 It is good to have friends who know about these things and are still alive and kicking!!!! 

 Brilliant stuff, Fred - I love it.
