The class of 2012

Mindset List for the class of 2012

The class of 2012 has grown up in an era where computers and rapid communication are the norm, and colleges no longer trumpet the fact that residence halls are “wired” and equipped with the latest hardware. These students will hardly recognize the availability of telephones in their rooms since they have seldom utilized landlines during their adolescence. They will continue to live on their cell phones and communicate via texting. Roommates, few of whom have ever shared a bedroom, have already checked out each other on Facebook where they have shared their most personal thoughts with the whole world.

It is a multicultural, politically correct and “green” generation that has hardly noticed the threats to their privacy and has never feared the Russians and the Warsaw Pact.


Good ones:

4. GPS satellite navigation systems have always been available.
9. Electronic filing of tax returns has always been an option.
22. Clarence Thomas has always sat on the Supreme Court.
28. IBM has never made typewriters.
33. The Tonight Show has always been hosted by Jay Leno and started at 11:35 EST.
37. Authorities have always been building a wall across the Mexican border.
44. Caller ID has always been available on phones.
50. They have never known life without Seinfeld references from a show about “nothing.”

I'm fucking old.

C'mon, Jake. With the way you seductively point your finger in that leftover Lollapalooza pic, you don't look a day over 19.

That's his nephew, Byron - Jake uses him for all his photos.

There has never been a Berlin Wall.
There has never been a Soviet Union (which will change, mark my words).
Only two families have ever been in the White House.
Libraries are where you get free Internet. (bks? OMG wht r those????)

That is all I'll allow my cynicism to foster.

I don't trust anyone under thirty.

Hey, you! Stupid kid, get off my friggin' lawn!

...but aren't you a young'un yourself???? You always struck me as one under the age of 30, which in my book is a young'un.



Lita's a Forever Young'un (tm); she made that deal with el diablo which guarantees that any age marks that would dare to cross her young-looking face are immediately transferred to Joan Rivers' lovely, uncreased visage.

I'd like to start a website called arsebook where you show a picture of
your dumper. Jake--wanna handle the technical part of this project and split it fitty-fitty? Oh wait---never mind---a bunch of 17 year old tech savvy scumbags will get us in trouble. by posting their behinds.
The youngens ruin everything.
