I have a skewed view of age - my parents are older, and I was raised around older adults more than kids my age - and I'm not one of those that freak out that "OMG I'm Old" mentality. We all know it bugs me when people make age a factor.Remember when suitcases had to be carried instead of rolled? Or when an airline ticket was a booklet of pages separated by carbon paper? Maybe you remember when Lou Gehrig held the Major League record for consecutive baseball games played.
This year's college freshmen don't.
They never lived in a world where Kurt Cobain was alive or an NFL team played its home games in Los Angeles. The Class of 2016 has no need for radios, watches television everywhere except on actual TV sets and is addicted to "electronic narcotics."
But OMG! This article freaked me out. It's just so weird to see all of the changes in my [short] lifetime... or just the last 18 years!
And I have no idea about some of the "youth" references, which isn't really surprising... I don't really try to keep up (though ask me what the latest greatest change at a disney park is and I can tell you more than you want to know!)
