Generations

Post  pinhedz on Mon May 19, 2014 9:39 am

This might not be exactly right; think of it as a first attempt: geek 

Best generation: boomers dads, who saved the world from Hitler and invented nukes;

boomers: born 1946--1964 (the ones who made good started to be called "yuppies" around 1981 and later);

gen-Xers: born roughly early '60s--early '80s (also known as "baby busters"), who moped and pouted all the time because the boomers thought they had all the good music;

millenials: born 1982--2004 (the years for "gen-Y" are almost the same). Some commentators say the millenials will be "our next great generation," with traits such as confidence, tolerance, entitlement and narcissism

-Truthfully the Russians did the bulk of the work in saving the world from Hitler, but that shouldn't detract from your enjoyment of all those fun Duke Wayne & Tom Hanks movies ... Americans did the bulk of work in saving the world from The Japanese (  Suspect ) by atom bombing them "because they wanted to keep their emperor," and then letting them keep their emperor afterall  scratch ... later it was said they were atom bombed because "100,000 or maybe even 1 million American boys would have died in invading Japan"  even though Japan was ready to surrender  scratch 

-nuke inventors weren't Best Geners


HistoNugget : many things attributed to Boom Babies actually started much earlier, i.e. Orpah Winfrey / Deepak Chorpa Narcissistic Self-Improvement & Fulfillment Regimens clearly began with the writings and speakings of Dale Carnegie, in the 1930s and 1940s

One of my teachers in Moscow said that the warfare between Russia and the Nazis is referred to as "The Unknown War."

Why? "Because Americans don't know it ever happened."
She was greatly surprised to learn that American students had already heard that Russia participated in WW-II (not making this up  ). How else could there have been ever a Warsaw Pact?

It's true the Boom Babies like to say "our pop music is the best of all time" but what they mean to say is "the music we bought is the best ever" because the brightest stars of The Baby Era like Dill Bobbin, Jim Hendrix, Jimmy Morrison, Frank Zappa, The Stone Beetles etc. were born before The Baby Era began, and these fartists cashed in on the gullible babes you see

-one of my distant relatives worked on The Muppets take Manhattan Project and was born in the 1890s, I think a lot of The Nuke Inventors were born then, what are they called?  The Gay Generation, because they were born during The Gay Nineties?  

-Nicholas Ray said The Boom Babies were partially justified in being such brats because Ray said his generation were not the best parents.

That seems consistent--so you agree with this then?

The Manhattan Project had some old-timers in their 40s, but the average age was low enough to be worrisome. Suspect

THE STRAWBERRY ALARM CLOCK BAND & THE THREE DOG NIGHTS.

The Millennium Generation excel at Social Media, taking pictures of themselves, and Social Media startups.

Boomers used to write for movies and TV--but it was time to turn it over to fresh thinkers, I reckon.
