Someone passed on to me a story about the Beloit College mindset list, which of course sent me to the list itself. It deals with things that would be part of the consciousness of the college Class of 2012, mainly people born in 1990. A few highlights, in case you don't want to go to the whole list:
-- Coke and Pepsi have always used recycled plastic bottles.
-- Clarence Thomas has always sat on the Supreme Court.
-- IBM has never made typewriters.
-- There has always been Pearl Jam.
-- Students always had Goosebumps.
-- Stevie Ray Vaughan and Sammy Davis Jr. (photo above, from sammydavis-jr.com) have always been dead.
-- "The Tonight Show" has always been hosted by Jay Leno.
