• 1990 – No Wonder They Don’t Understand!

    I must admit that I had never thought of any of this until a friend sent it to me via email. I have to tell you that it has really made me think.


    The people who will be graduating from college soon were born in 1990.

    They are too young to remember the explosion of the shuttle Challenger.

    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 microwaved.

    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.”

    They don’t know that

    McDonald’s never came in Styrofoam containers.


    They don’t have a clue how to use a typewriter.
