    I'm cusp born. Depending on who's list you read, I'm either last of the baby boomers or first of gen x.

    The New Generation.

    I've always known that 1981 people were right on the cusp, but I'm used to the cutoff year for Gen X being 1980.

    None of the above.
    A lady never tells her age and a gentleman never asks.

    In the US, Baby Boomers are those born between 1946 - 1964.

    I've never heard of the millennial generations, I've only heard it referred to a Gen Y.

    She was indeed. And I was tempted to ask her out -- but she was much too young for me.

    Henie was overrated. Jackson Haines was better.

    You hear it a lot here, as the US media is currently obsessed with millennials. Today there was a great piece throwing baby boomers under the bus for all bad things millennial. Apparently, we're suppose to believe that all millennials are Vita Pierce and if you want to know why Vita is such a horrid human being, the answer is it's all Mildred's fault. After all, you made me the way I am mother, you made me like this! :lol:

    Close to the end of the baby boomers. It makes me feel old to think I am in the same "generation" as someone born in the 1940's!!!!

    X-er.

    These generations seem so broad. What is a current 31 year old supposed to have in common with a current 8 year old?

    I sympathize. I selected millennial (b. 1982), but I definitely have some Gen X tendencies. And I do feel I have little in common with those later millennial. Technically my twin nieces (b.2003) and I are both in the same generation, but obviously we don't have that much in common.

    I'm an X, I think, although some has me as a Y. I'll place myself as another Xy

    For what it's worth, Quantcast has the following estimates of age-groups for visitors to this site from the U.S.:


    < 18 7%

    18-24 5%

    25-34 33%

    35-44 12%

    45-54 18%

    55-64 20%

    65+ 4%

    https://www.quantcast.com/fsuniverse.net#!demo&anchor=age-gender-container

    I wonder whether there would be significant difference between the figures for the U.S. and those for the rest of the world.

    I don't really understand the concept of how someone who could be my child age-wise and I can be the same generation. That's weird and doesn't make much sense. ...

    That's my first thought...

    How could they be in the same generation? Who decides these generations? :confused:
