Here’s this year’s What Your Freshmen Don’t Know and the ones that especially struck me:

1. The Soviet Union has never existed and therefore is about as scary as the student union.

6. There has always been only one Germany.

12. Smoking has never been permitted on U.S. airlines.

15. They have never had to distinguish between the St. Louis Cardinals baseball and football teams.

23. Bar codes have always been on everything, from library cards and snail mail to retail items.

24. Madden has always been a game, not a Super Bowl-winning coach.

34. They have always known that “In the criminal justice system the people have been represented by two separate yet equally important groups.”

41. They have always been able to watch wars and revolutions live on television.

47. Small white holiday lights have always been in style.

56. They have never put their money in a “Savings & Loan.”

60. They never saw Bernard Shaw on CNN.

63. Television stations have never concluded the broadcast day with the national anthem.

75. Professional athletes have always competed in the Olympics.
