The Yoof of Today

Every year the mindset list looks at the world through the eyes of the current set of entrants to Universities. This year, those young minds would have grown up never knowing the Soviet Union, always with a mouse in their hands, and thinking that Google has always been a verb.

It doesn't seem to mention that generation's general lack of social graces and entitlement complex though. What that lot need is less self-esteem, not more.

And here is where the discussion has to move to another forum, for fear of boring the public with a domestic.

Hehe, I imagine Caity is used to us boring everyone by now ;)
Will agree that it's an interesting link though. The bit that worries me is point 32 = Reality shows have always been on television. Shudder.
