From Beloit College's annual "Mindset List":

Each August for the past decade, as faculty prepare for the academic year, Beloit College in Wisconsin has released the Beloit College Mindset List. Its 70 items provide a look at the cultural touchstones that have shaped the lives of today’s first-year students, most of them born in 1989.

They've never "rolled down" a car window.

They never saw Johnny Carson live on television.
