Beloit College has come out with this year’s Mindset List of cultural references common to the incoming class of freshman. Since Beloit is in Wisconsin, one of the items on the list is “the Green Bay Packers (almost) always had the same starting quarterback.”

Also on the list…

  • GPS satellite navigation systems have always been available
  • Gas stations have never fixed flats, but most serve cappuccino
  • WWW has never stood for World Wide Wrestling
  • Films have never been X rated, only NC-17
  • There have always been gay rabbis
  • They have never been able to color a tree using a raw umber Crayola
  • The Tonight Show has always been hosted by Jay Leno and started at 11:35 EST
  • Authorities have always been building a wall across the Mexican border
  • Lenin’s name has never been on a major city in Russia
  • Personal privacy has always been threatened
  • Caller ID has always been available on phones
