Btw, the newer generations e.g. Larry Page, Sergey Brin are theoretically X-ers but have a totally different mindset than the alleged generational traits. It only shows how seriously we can take these generalisations....NOT.
A guy growing up in Moscow in the 1970s does not have the same generational traits as American counterparts… what a surprise...

Who said it was a surprise? ......

Btw, his parents emigrated to USA when he was 5. Just saying. I would say he's an American product, me. You're entitled to a different opinion, of course.

Thats because boomers are sensible and prefer quality news sources… like Fox News.
As I've never seen Fox news, I guess that I can't be a boomer!

Re: Boomer - meaning

Wonder what they call the generation after the Boomers?
The 50 year old contingent are too young to be Boomers but definitely ancient enough to be considered decrepit by the young.

Is that a trick question? The generation after the boomers is called “generation x”.

I don't think it was a trick question. Most people don't give a rats ass on this stuff hence are not versed in these "findings".
