Mark: I agree with "kⁿgf_f". I too, was also born in 1978, and to be honest, I don't think that many people my age were really "into" the 80s when they ***actuallY*** occurred (although for some s... More, posted to "My Turn"

Jennifer: Friday, December 13, 1963. My birthday - turning 40 next week. With a due date of November 22 I was over 3 weeks late. I must have thought that wasn't a good time for babies. I agree - 1963 does s... More, posted to "Boomer Timeline, Part 2"

Steffie: I'm right smack dabb in the middle of Gen-X-1972. I do believe that Gen-X extends to 1977 rather than 1972 like Coupland stated in his book. I also think that the older the Gen-X the more they'll res... More, posted to "My Turn"
