The Silent Generation are people born before 1946.

The Baby Boomers are people born between 1946 and 1965.

Generation X are people born between 1965 and 1979.
Generation Y are people born between 1980 and 1995.

Why do we call the last one Generation Y? � I did not know until now, but the cartoon explains it eloquently... and now you too have learned something new!

Fun picture, thanks for a laugh.

The silent generation was of the '50's not '40's. Although it really is a misnomer. There is always an issue that stands out in each generation.

Anyone who knows me knows that. LOL

Hi Bob. I call the current generation of teenagers the "gimme" or "I want" generation. When I was a youngster, some 45 years ago I was more than happy for what my parents gave or could give me. This generation wants to have everything that's available to them regardless of what the costs are. I have seen parents go into hock (borrow) to keep their kids happy, sometimes with dire consequences.

I can't see the cartoon, it would not open...however, I am convinced that Gen Y may become the greatest generation.

I see a lot of truly amazing youngsters out there amongst the losers we always hear about. I spent a week at Ft Benning last week and saw them eyeball to eyeball. I work with some of them at Ft Detrick. They're doing all kinds of things that put me in awe.

I'm a Baby Boomer, and frankly I'm not impressed with what we've accomplished...managed to mess things up quite well, as far as I can tell.
