    Default Feel old yet?

    Just in case you weren't feeling too old today,
    this will certainly change things.
    The people who are starting college this fall across the nation
    were born in 1989.
    They are too young to remember the space shuttle blowing up.
    Their lifetime has always included AIDS.
    The CD was introduced two years before they were born.
    They have always had an answering machine.
    They have always had cable.
    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 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'.
    McDonald's never came in Styrofoam containers
    They don't have a clue how to use a typewriter
    Do you feel old yet?

    Notice the larger type, that's for those of you who have trouble reading.
    President Barack Obama
    Sounds amazing, doesn't it?

    Holy crap!! I feel really old.

    I remember getting a VCR, cable, a microwave, air conditioning, call waiting, etc. I remember the first office job I had that had a fax machine!!

    They have also never known a world without The Simpson's in primetime. I love that show and can't believe it has been on that long.

    Dear lord, that's the year I started misbehaving in Chinatown at rock shows.
