Site of the Day

Let's get one thing straight: I am no baby boomer. Some people say the baby boom ended in 1964, a year after I was born. Rubbish. Baby Boomers are the children of people who were of child-bearing age at the end of World War II. My dad was nine, my mom was five. Nyah. Find another

Nah, some of my best friends are baby boomers. But like an awful lot of us in the non-generation that came between the baby boomers and the next generation, I am sick to death of hearing about them. In fact, I'm sick of hearing about generations with names.

Not as sick as
this guy is.

Here, here!

If you believe the "people who know" these sorts of things, I'm one of the last baby-boomers to be born (12/1965).

But if you apply a little logic you find that, like you, my parents were far too young to be having babies in the mid-40's.

On a side note, are you aware of any support groups or org's. devoted to the plight of us non-generationals?

Oh baby, I am SO sick and tired of being lumped in with these whiners! I was born at the end of 1961, and have NOTHING in common with Boomers. I hate their music, their politics (Hillary, Bill, Kerry,etc.), their attitude that the world owes them something, the list goes on and on.

My parents were 12 and 9 at the end of WW2 as well, so there was no way I could be considered a Boomer either.
