If you lived in a world where Kurt Cobain, Jackie Kennedy and Richard Nixon were never alive, you might be an incoming college freshman. So says the latest Beloit College Mindset List.

It’s an effort summarize what the Class of 2016 knows, and what they don’t, placed inside a larger cultural context.

Some examples: People don’t carry luggage, they roll it.

Robert De Niro isn’t the young Godfather, he’s Ben Stiller’s father-in-law in “Meet the Parents”.

“The Twilight Zone” is about vampires, not Rod Serling.

And JR Ewing has been replaced as the most shot-at man on American TV by Monty Burns, Homer’s boss on “The Simpsons.”
