Every once in a while, I receive a copy on the internet of information, aimed at College students, of letting them know who their incoming class is, and how they perceive the world. It has tidbits and cultural references such as:-This class has no memory of the Challenger explosion-This class has no idea what "Da Plane! Da Plane!" references-Every member of this class has had a mobile phone since birthSimilar to the "Day in the life" episodes, it would be great to do a periodic reset of the intellectual life of the population of England. Could have things like (and I'm making these facts up completely):-At this point, the Anglo Saxon invasion was 200 years ago. People remember it as dimly (or less so) as we remember George Washington.-Communications with France are sporadic. The average peasant has never heard of Africa.-People amuse themselves telling stories. Folk stories commonly told are xxx. (This will change over time - when did King Arthur become a legend? How about Robin Hood?)
