Actually, yes. I have.  My hobby is muscle cars. Particular Mopars.  I've been to more car shows than I can count. Seen plenty of 'em.

+1

I love me some muscle cars. I can't stand these new cars. A car that I will one day own is a 1970 Mustang Mach 1 with a 428CJ. It is the car of my dreams. But as my first car which I'll be buying sometime within a year from now will be probably whatever beater muscle car I can get my hands on. Screw fuel economy.

The greyhound's rocking out tonight
To maximum rockabilly
When two punks chose to risk the subway
For a tube to Picadilly
The Zephrys stir fast gangs for glory
Another dumb casualty
Having fun
In South West six
Hidden flick knife flicks
Kiss me, deadly, tonight

Another battle was won and lost
Down The Bishops End last night
Spotlights pick the kids in triumph
With a thousand scarves in flight, see how they run
Spring from the terraces in black and white
Young and old into the fight
Having fun
In South West Six
With violence for a fix
Kiss me, deadly, tonight

Seven o'clock they stand in rank
For the thirty bus uptown
And later in a downstairs room
She pulls her lover down
In ecstacy but they can't make a sound
Case her mother might come down
Having fun
In South West Six
Discovers teenage sex
Kiss me, deadly, tonight

(guitar solo)

The Snooker Hall is empty
Cause they're all out playing pool
Hustling down the Fulham Road
Doing deals with Mr.Cool
Well They're on the waterfront now instead of being at school
Too old now, even to dig pinball
Having fun
In South West Six
Having fun
When a hidden flick knife flicks
With violence for a fix
Discovers teenage sex
Tried shooting up for, kicks
Kiss me, deadly
Kiss me, deadly
Kiss me, deadly
Kiss me
Kiss me, tonight

So i was born in 83 does that make me gen y? if so ghey
Link Posted: 6/4/2008 10:28:02 PM EDT
If you want dates, I think '83 is the cutoff.

For a more abstract definition, think singular pronouns like "I", "me" as in "What I want or need is all that matters."
Link Posted: 6/4/2008 10:30:23 PM EDT
Ignoring dates.... I want to say "losers". I might just have a bad perspective on Xers as most of them I've worked or dealt with have been insane.

So I was at Costco today and on checkout I noticed a sign on the counter "You cannot buy alcohol if you were born on this day after 1986", (or something like that) so I said to my wife - "Oh, my God, my fuckin Nintendo can buy booze, and it could for the last two years."

Not much makes me feel old but knowing that my video game that I got at Target as a kid is legal, really gave me a little pause.

Gen X, I guess?

To define Generation X - I was born during Vietnam, and I grew up in Arcades and in an era of commercialism that let to a global economy that withered the United States of our manufacturing capacity for cheaper goods that now plague our dollar. While none of this crap is our fault; Are we are the generation to clean up after the dirty hippies and make this country work again?

It's like we are the cinder block generation, a firm wall between the "old ways" and the "digital lazy days".

Normally 1965 to 1975 or 1980, actually.  Some folks here (Playmore and myself, actually) have suggested that 1965-1970 doesn't quite fit, her from experience and myself from watching the kids.

Work back.. X is the 10th generation.  Figure 20 years per gen.  1776-1976 is 200.  1976-1996?

No, the cohorts aren't evenly spaced out.  You look at for peaks and somewhat discrete clusters of behavior.  The "Gen X" folks are in a narrow window, more so than usual.  Boomers were a in a cohort that lasted a lot longer (20-22 years by some estimates).  And again, 1965-1970 doesn't quite fit.

Nope, it doesn't work that way. There are 'inbetween' generations every so often - they usually last 10 years. Like between the boomers and Gen X there is Generation Jones - they are the ones who were in college during Reagan's first term.

Gen Y is 1983 to 1997.

Possibly a little earlier than 1983 ... but basically right.  Do much demographics?  It's more of a hobby these days (not much use in my second career) but I keep up.

The X was supposedly for some disenfranchisement with what was.
