I fear for our future

Craig's list of things he's "learned" during his students speeches scares me - how old are these kids?

Of course, when I taught Acting for Nonmajors at the University of Texas, I had some equally clueless students, and they were in college. I had an entire class who not only didn't know, but refused to believe me when I told them, that the father's contribution of an X or Y chromosome determines the fetus' sex. In this same class I got the following answers on the bonus question, "Name one of Henry VIII's 6 wives?" - Joan of Arc, Katharine the Great, Marie Antoinette, and Elizabeth I.
