    I'm Generation Jones.
    "Generation Jones is a term coined by Jonathan Pontell to describe the generation of people born between 1954 and 1965 (although some sources include 1966 and 1967). The term is used primarily in English-speaking countries.[1][2][3]

    Jonathan Pontell defined Generation Jones as a distinct concept, referring to the second half of the post-World War II baby boom (1954-1964) [4] Its members are still usually identified with either Baby Boomers or Generation X'ers."

    If I have to identify as either a Boomer or Gen X, I am definitely Gen X, just born a couple years early.

    Thanks for the short explanation.
    I'm just not sure what makes that different than anyone else, though.

    I mean, people don't wear Mother Teresa t-shirts. (Unless Peguy's got one on under his button-up shirt. )

    ...I guess it's more the iconoclast thing going on here...

    I gotta say, for years all my metrosexual friends were into Ikea and I didn't understand why. I'm actually more eclectic and textured than that, but I've learned to appreciate it a bit.

    Don't forget that being different is okay -- just like Bobby learned when he got trapped in the meat locker and was able to squirm out through the glass window because he was smaller than he wished he was.

    As far as know, none of them were into typology or the Internet.

    I guess for me it's just a point of shame (or maybe inspiration) that someone could attempt so much (and pulled some of it off too).

    You forgot "murderer." There are a lot of people who add that one to the list as well.

    Like Sarte said, he thought he was a complete human being. I never said the man was a saint.
