    That's nice.

    Two of my grandparents were dead before they were 70, and the other two died in their 90's without ever wanting to touch the Internet. For my grandparent-in-laws, the grandmother died in her early 60's, and the grandfather thought drums in Christian music were satanic; might as well kiss off the internet there...

    (But one of my great aunts was into it. I think she primarily did e-mail, but that was something at least. She was some sort of ENF, I think; and she always liked talking to the teens and young adults even when she was very old, and was into new tech like Walkmans and CD players when they came out.)

    No, but I think his sense of willpower was remarkable.

    yeah he's the only one of my grandparents who ever got on the internet. My grandpa on my mom's side died before internet was big, my grandma had a stroke when I was 3 paralyzing her on her right side and effecting her speech and motor skills. My grandma on my dad's side had alzheimer's pretty bad by the time the internet got big.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Well hell, add Muamar Qadaffi to your list while you're at it. Ever try rising to the top politically in a third-world country? It takes nothing if not iron will.

    Yeah, but you gotta admit that Che is a lot prettier than Qaddaffi or Hitler. I can see why he "made waves" in the t-shirt industry.

    Me too: he was clearly a better and more glamorous image and icon than Staline for marketing and to release communism. But nothing more.

    Ummm.. I ran a Google, just to be sure what I considered knowledge in my head was not in fact warped information. I checked 6 sources.. have a look yourself

    But Gen X in North America is considered between 1967-1978 roughly, and the world standard seems to go no lower than 1964 and finishes at 1978-80.

    So I am just saying all of the 1st wave and some of the 2nd wave Gen Xers, according to this poll, are in fact, Last Wave Baby Boomers.
    If you are older than 46.. you are a Boomer not an Xer.. which sucks for you.. because GenX at least has a cool name and a subcultural context.
    I can understand why you might want to relate to one over the other.. But life isn't that simple, in this cut and dry cookie cutter world.
    You either are something or you are not.. If you are born before 1964, you are not a Gen Xer ..

    Just saying
