I think that's pretty funny, but I also think it's probably true and that's a little scary. ::nod::

I need some help here. I am a baby boomer so I know who(when) they are. What follows? And what date determines, birthday? HS graduation?

My 2 sons were born in the early 80's. Are they millennials or something else? I should google this.

I thought the interviewer handled that one well.

Steve I believe your boys would fall into generation X as my chillun do.

Maybe Greg, that's why I asked. One reference(Wikipedia) indicated the beginning of the 80's is used by most as the starting point for the millennials. Also according to wiki they could be gen x depending on who you talk to.

The attitude expressed by that girl, if accurate, scares the hell out of me. I don't run into many so I can't say.

This list was posted in "Time Magazine" a couple months ago and is relevant to the U.S.A. population.

If the millenials are the parents of generation Z I'm afraid they don't stand a chance of survival. ::teary_eyes::

I literally almost cannot abide this hairstyle on men.

If you're not a Sumo wrestler, there is no reason for a man-bun. ::shrug::

I don't dislike vegans, I just think that's funny. ::tu::

There was a fashion show recently that featured men's skirts. Sooner or later, we will all be wearing the same outfits. ::facepalm::

Right on with that. Today I should feel honored to be waited on by Yungins. Fast food restaurant, that will be $2.53. Ok put down a ten and count 53 cents out of pocket and put on ten dollar bill. Yungin says I can't accept money like that, I say what? You have to pick the money up and put it in my hand. Well I picked it up and w alked out of restaurant. Bet owner would like that. ::td:: ::td::

Greg, I think Smokey Mountain sold them a few years back.
All are single blades, marked U.S.A.
The small footnote printed on the bottom of knife states: "c 1992 King Features Syndicate, Inc. Of the Hearst Corporation."

My wife just informed me that when she thinks of man buns it has absolutely nothing to do with what setting on top of his head. ::rotflol::
