Beloit College has released their mindlist for the class of 2011. Here are some of the items on the list
  • What Berlin wall?
  • They never “rolled down” a car window.
  • Nelson Mandela has always been free and a force in South Africa.
  • Russia has always had a multi-party political system.
  • Wal-Mart has always been a larger retailer than Sears and has always employed more workers than GM.
  • Al Gore has always been running for president or thinking about it.
  • U2 has always been more than a spy plane.
  • Women’s studies majors have always been offered on campus.
  • Tiananmen Square is a 2008 Olympics venue, not the scene of a massacre.
  • “Off the hook” has never had anything to do with a telephone.
  • They were introduced to Jack Nicholson as “The Joker.”
