    Interesting. Looks like over 75% of this forum was born between 1977 and 1993.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    Gen X Fifth wave: last generation of people who actually talk to others rather than to their cellphone when they were at university, lol.

    Other facts:

    Boomer were between 8 and 26 during the first Woodstock Festival
    Xers were between 12 and 33 during the second Woodstock Festival

    Xers were between 0 and 21 when the album Thriller by Michael Jackson was released, so they were all child or adolescents at this period. First Yers were born the same year (1982).

    Yers are the ones who always knew MJ white.
    Zers are the ones who always knew MJ dead.

    The worst was in 02-03 when people started buying those awful nextel push to talk radio cell phones that constantly filled the air with loud static.
    Take the weakest thing in you

    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    Gen X 3rd, Let's see.....my first computer was a Commodore 64 that ran on the cassettes as someone mentioned earlier. I remember getting nightmares from the movie "Jaws". No way my parents would've let me see it so I must've seen a commercial or something Practically living at the arcade when Space Invaders came out, penny candy (actually 2 or 3 pieces for a penny!), baseball having & SCHEDULING double-headers, when Wheel of Fortune contestants shopped for their prizes, I was hooked on double matinees with cartoons (sometimes 3 Stooges) on before the movies, candy cigarettes with the pink tips and the 70's clothes, the awful, awful clothes!
    Damn, I'm glad as I don't feel as old as this post makes me seem! :yim_rolling_on_the_
    I'm never wrong, I'm just sometimes less right

    I can identify with quite a bit here.. except the 70's clothes. I'm not sure if I had it better though. Short 80's shorts, velcro shoes.. nevermind.

    I miss arcades.
