Every year for the last 10, Beloit College publishes their Mindset List. It originated as a way to help their faculty better understand the world view of their incoming freshman class. In the last decade, it’s release has become a national event, with nearly every media outlet sharing some form of the list with its audience.

I could push a lot of spoilers, but I’ll save that for later this week. I’ll just say that as they years march onward, there are fewer and fewer references I don’t immediately get … and more and more which startle me with a reminder of my age.

(non-spoiler: #4 … really? #9 … really?!)
