Cover of Barrons had an article saying milennials are 37-18 years old. At 35 years old no way I'm a millennial.
You're not a millennial if you remember when George Clooney was on Facts of Life.
If you remember the episode of Diff'rent Strokes where Kimberly's hair turned green because she showered with acid rain.
If you remember exactly where you were when Kurt Cobain died an were actually sad about it.
#1. Don't remember
#2. What you talkin' about Willis?
#3. I don't remember where I was the exact moment he died, but I remember where I was the moment I first heard about it. It was on Channel 1 in my homeroom. The same place I learned about Easy E's death the next year.

You're not a Millennial if you remember when the Space Shuttle Challenger exploded.
If you watched the last time MSU went to the Rose Bowl.
I remember that. They wheeled in the TV cart and we watched the news.
I forgot that her hair turned green because of "acid rain"!
I'm 37 and consider myself to be firmly within the Gen X generation.
Having said that, I don't remember George Clooney being on Facts of Life, and I can't recall a single plot line from Diff'rent Strokes.
I do remember where I was the day I found out Kurt Cobain died. I was 17. I don't know that I was particularly sad about it, but it was a fairly significant event for someone that age.
Most people use the early 80's to start defining Gen Y/Millennial and sometime around 2000 as a cut-off.
Remember when MTV and BET were running PSA's alerting women who had sexual contact with Eazy-E to go get tested?
I'm a balling, scratch golfer, PGMF'er, thirty-something RCMB mod, lawyer. That makes me a milennial-aire, right?
Photo on strike.
Maybe they meant 37 minus 18.

I think we're firmly in between. We have no generation. There are a lot of things I have in common with Gen Y/Millenials but a shit ton more that I don't. Gen X barely resonates with me at all on the other hand.

Come on, if you are going to mention a Different Strokes plotline it has to be the one with the child molester. Arnold freaking left Dudley with the molester!
I'm on the border of the usual demographic breakdowns (born 1979), but there's no way I'm actually a millenial. Of course, there are things about GenX that I don't identify with (Sixteen Candles was not a seminal moment of my adolescence) but I certainly don't identify with the current crop of 20-somethings.
I think it's just bizarre because for most of the 90s and early 00s, the consensus seemed to be that Gen X ran through 81 or 82, and certainly no earlier than 80. Now, in the past few months, it seems that the definition of Gen Y is suddenly stretching back to the mid-70s. Why redefine it now?
I actually dialed a rotary dial phone until my teenage years, and this thing is calling me a millennial?! Uh....no.
My first game console was a PS1. I R mulleneal.
I remember making a girl you like a mix tape. And when Poison wore makeup!
you watched MTV for the music videos
Atari 2600 and a Commodore 64 in my household. The Atari arrived around '81 or '82 and we got the C64 sometime around '83.
My neighbor had an Intelliivision which sucked in comparison, but his parents were never home so we played it all the time.
I was a little late to the NES party. All my friends had an NES first, and I didn't get one until around 1989. We got a Windows PC around the same time.
If you have any kind of a work ethic;
If you haven't lost all sense of reality;
If you possess a modicom of common sense.

There are plenty of lazy and stupid old people.
How can you reference a Different Strokes episode and it not be the one when Arnold and Dudley got molested at the bike shop?
Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance
Intelevision followed by Atari then Nintendo.
The correct spelling is modicum. And apparently being a classless prick isn't limited to millennials.
2600 to 7800 to NES to Super NES then out of the game until XBox then to 360
For some reason I feel like taking my shirt off?
