    Well, personally, I prefer it to be filed in the children's section.

    I am not a boomer, and the retort is annoying when deployed by someone who doesn’t know what else to say. It is magical when employed appropriately, however.

    If you’re around my age then you probably have more in common with them than they think

    We are probably the last generation before the gap was closed

    As in we can relate to our 80’s 70’s counterparts and probably did similar things growing up/have similar experiences

    The way technology has moved the gap is now smaller, seems to happen every once in a while

    I like being born when I was because I can remember before everything was ruined by technology and because I CAN relate to previous generations, I feel more at home with those behind than ahead

    i am tired and disgusted of the gen X thingie. Just because i am a milenial, if i were born 2 years before i would have been gen X.

    I was young enough to play psychobilly, and that was bad enough.
    Not me playing, but i like them.


    koefte is a huge guy. like mad max humougus huge. But he shook my hands, and talked to me. Good people, folks in mad sin.

    My 9 year old nephew told me that they were learning cursive which kind of surprised me, I thought they did away with it years ago

    I remember in our school right after I left they did away with social studies....who needs to know about the world and it’s people and interaction.....

    I Don’t get it..

    Millennials are smart! My youngest daughter and her boyfriend are both Millennials and by my observation, they just see the world in a different way than when I was their age. They are way more savvy than other generations in my view and don't get credit for their concerns and observations. Time will tell if they start falling into the traps of previous generations, it usually starts to happen when they start having families of their own, get bogged down in jobs they hate, fall into debt from greed and fear of missing out on "The American Dream". Details at eleven!

    I don't buy into the joke that because they are tech savvy don't know how to do anything else. That is nonsense and they will figure things out as they need to. The only thing they need to work on in my opinion is that they need to be a little more patient. Sometimes the world doesn't move at a fast enough pace for them.

    Kids don't have written homeworks anymore here. And they can't spell. This is how the langage evolves, it is great, but they can't spell worth a cow fart.

    What if Shel Silverstein wrote The Metamorphosis? Maybe a giving roach?

    My nephews handwriting and spelling is atrocious because of this type of thing

    This is how history is lost at least history of how everyday ordinary people interact and such

    Everything used to be written

    I think 100 years from now little will be known about the going’s on of everyday people

    With today's media and everyone posting on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc surely well know more about this generations going one than previously.

    After all the boomers die out as all generations eventually do what are we going to know about their daily lives of their youth. Probably about as much as I know about the greatest generations daily lives.

    Paper gets lost, once you put something on the internet good luck irradiating it.

    Edit: Also as long as handwriting is at least legible (with relative ease) I don't think it's too much of a concern.

    I'm Gen X - I hang mostly with Gen Y (or whatever they are called now) and Millennials - people my age just look and act too old ;) I've run into people from high school that look 70+ (not that that's a bad thing, except that they are only early 50s). Some living a hard life, I suppose.

    My Millennial kids are all well adjusted, employed and/or attending school, passionate about their beliefs and pretty driven. That doesn't sound too off from where I was when I their age.

    Then we really will be in the dark ages. How am suppose to learn how to cook, fix something, tell my friends what's going on in my life and most importantly self diagnose myself with cancer (or some other terminal disease)?
