today's fun-loving teens

the world changes so fast these days, people have made a career out of charting the cultural evolution of the nation's teenagers:

Beloit College Mindset List: For the College Class of 2015, Dial-Up Is So Last Century - TIME NewsFeed: "For teenagers entering college for the first time this fall, there has never been an official Communist Party in Russia, Amazon is more than just a South American river, and “LBJ” is more likely to mean LeBron James than the man who succeeded Kennedy.

These factoids and more are included in Beloit College's “Mindset List,” an annual document that helps faculty understand the culture and psyche of the incoming class. This year's list is catered to the class of 2015, a group that was born in 1993 (give or take a year)."

the first generation to drink, smoke or fuck. man, we're livin' good in the 21st century!

so kids, hurry up and start racking up debt. your corporate masters need your support!
