MILWAUKEE (AP) -- For students entering college this fall, e-mail is too slow, phones have never had cords and the computers they played with as kids are now in museums.
The Class of 2014 thinks of Clint Eastwood more as a sensitive director than as Dirty Harry urging punks to "go ahead, make my day." Few incoming freshmen know how to write in cursive or have ever worn a wristwatch....

Few incoming freshmen know how to write. Period.
I haven’t worn a wristwatch for over 10 years.
I might would wear one as a status symbol or fashion accessory.
But I’m a guy. Not into that metrosexual stuff.
A useful skill, it taught me to type carefully.
It's been 3 years for me.
It's nice to have my left wrist as tan as my right, but that's not the reason.
However, we all will live by e-mail for the foreseeable future.
Metrosexual is checking your cell phone for the time not checking your wrist.
A watch is metrosexual? How do you tell what time it is when you’re outside and don’t have n electronic device with you? Do you carry a sundial?
Beloit does this every year. Always very interesting. (And it will make you feel old.)
There’s something wrong with my new cell phone....there’s no dial tone.
Here some stuff the Class of 2014 will experience.
1. Owe $300,000 as their share of National Debt.
2. Experience long term unemployment.
3. See America slip to 2nd place economically to China.
4. Have a lower standard of living compare to their parents.
5. Depend on the Government for livelihood and wellbeing.
6. Never be able to own a house.
And how to kill time at the pub while waiting for the techs to put your printouts in your bin.
7. See the establishment of Sharia law in parts of the United States and Europe.
“Not into that metrosexual stuff.”
That has nothing to do with wristwatches!
It’s for keeping time!
Wrong. They first met Michelangelo when he was a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle.
Sadly, neither do outgoing seniors.
I wear a plain watch WITH HANDS and can tell time with a quick glance ;no need to free one hand ,flip open a phone and all that true metrosexual flashiness.My job actually specifies a watch as one of the necessary,required tools .
Sorry. Didn’t mean to offend.
Keep wearing those Bulova’s and Timex’s. Nothing metrosexual about them.
My original post referred to watches worn as a status symbol or fashion accessory.
And why wear an unnessary watch? 95 percent of your time is spent with a cell phone, a computer monitor, house clock, car clock, TV clock and/or etc....
