And I think Junior and that crowd is considered Gen Z. Can anybody confirm that?

I think they're going with Millennials, or more pointedly, the 'Me' generation.
So the 70s was the "Me Decade" and they are the "Me Generation"? That's so confusing. Or were the 80s the "Me Decade"?

70's: Me
80's: of Excess
Gen Y = Millennials = Echo Boom (kinda)
See, but I thought they were making a distinction between the Gen Ys and the kids that are in their late teens/early twenties now. (Junior, the rat)

Gen X sounds like a roach spray.

Gen Y sounds like a lubricant.

Take your pick.

I always think that my generation will be defined as the first to grow up after 9/11. I was in 8th grade when it happened and it has totally colored my memories since then. Before was nice and idyllic and after was a little grittier. Like in Gears of War. I still try to maintain optimism and I think I do a pretty good job of it but it would have been a lot easier if that event hadn't happened and the following measures (The Patriot Act, for one) weren't put into effect.

I'm 20.

19 until the 10th of August.

In the future, all of our disagreement shall be settled with, "Listen to your elder, child!". Then I'll run away giggling.
