Thread Name: Tune A Penny Whistle?
Subject: RE: Help: Tune A Penny Whistle?
Myself, I fall into that very strange group of people who get called baby boomers, but are really too young for the title.

-The Vietnam War was over before I was of draftable age
-I was still in my 20's when "Thirtysomething" went off the air
-When they started defining "Gen-Xers" as people in their 20's, I was already in my 30's.
-By the time I got to high school, drugs were for losers.
-My mother is younger than Ringo.
-I am not a Baby Boomer. I am not a Gen-X-er.
-I have fallen through the cracks.

Therefore I refer to myself as a member of "Generation W" (one letter before "X").

Nobody cares what we think about, or like, or don't like, because there are too few of us.

In this way we will take over the world.
