Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

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. 

Do you feel old yet? Pass this on to the other old fogies on your list. Notice the large font. That’s for those of you who have trouble reading… It is good to have friends who know about these things and are still alive and kicking!!!!
