    Kinda sucks to think that my youngest son, (on Ba), is the same age as most of you. But then again, I'm proud of my battle scars

    Well I was born in 1951 but I'm immature because . . . . you can only be young once but you can be immature forever.

    1964, but most of us from '62-on prefer to disassociate ourselves from the 'Boomer' tag, as well as their culture. I'll thank you not to hang that one on me, thankyouverymuch.

    Beer transcends the generations, 1948, plus i invented the ibm card.

    If you want to be disassociated, why do you use Jerry as your avatar? Just cool I'm guessing.

    1957 was without a doubt the best year my parents ever had. And my kids are following in my footsteps(my daughter more than my son but he's coming around)

    Not a boomer... to quote Maxwell Smart "Missed it by THAT much".

    Don't consider myself an Xer either.... like the rest of kids on the short bus. I'm pretty damn special.:p

    Still can't drive 65!

    Yeppers. And a few years before Gen-Xérs learned how to misuse the wheel, fire, computers, and the internet.
