Default Re: Which generation are you?

I'll have to convince my grandparents to get on this forum, so we can get some representation from the Silent Generation.

The President of the US (Obama) is a Gen Jones.
I really don't mind one way or the other tbh

I accidentally left out the Interbellum (inter= between bellum= war in Latin) Generation, and lumped them in with the Greatest Generation. The IB generation is from 1901 to about 1913. I met someone from the early part of that generation yesterday, and she didn't like being lumped in with the Greatest Generation.

Well, it has never been the only means of video in my home, there was always the antenna, then cable. I still use mine, I have two VCRs, one super VHS, and one MiniDVI and super VHS.
