Feeling Old? Beloit College Releases Class of 2016 Mindset List

Each year, Beloit College releases its “Mindset List”, giving a cultural baseline of what its incoming freshman class looks like.

Here are a few highlights (or lowlights, depending on how sensitive you are about your age).

  1. Kurt Cobain, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Richard Nixon and John Wayne Gacy have always been dead.
  2. There has always been NFL football in Jacksonville but never in Los Angeles.
  3. Women have always piloted war planes and space shuttles.
  4. There have always been blue M&Ms, but no tan ones.
  5. Robert De Niro is thought of as Greg Focker’s long-suffering father-in-law, not as Vito Corleone or Jimmy Conway.

Feeling old yet?
