Beloit College's Mindset List

Beloit College has published their College Mindset List for the class of 2011, making the rest of us old farts feel even older and fartier. Among the nuggets of perspective gnawing at the Peter Pan inside me, the list assures me that people going into their freshman year in college this fall:

#4. They never “rolled down” a car window.
#8. General Motors has always been working on an electric car. (Edit: Yeah, but will they ever deliver? HA!)
#12. Religious leaders have always been telling politicians what to do, or else!
#35. Stadiums, rock tours and sporting events have always had corporate names.
#46. Most phone calls have never been private.
#53. Tiananmen Square is a 2008 Olympics venue, not the scene of a massacre
#55. MTV has never featured music videos.
#70. Food packaging has always included nutritional labeling.

Ye gods.
