Was wondering what Meh was, So I did a google and this is what I got.

Quote

Meh


05]

Millennials aren’t interested in what they aren’t interested in. And they have an expression for it: “meh.” There’s no mystery where “meh” comes from. It was expressed, and even spelt out, in episodes of The Simpsons, which could be considered the ultimate Millennial TV show. At first, when the Simpson daughter, Lisa, used it in 1992, it was hardly more than a mutter, but it was used again from time to time and in a 2001 episode she spelt it out, dignifying it as a word and not just a sound.




05]

Homer: Kids, how would you like to go to Blockoland?

Bart and Lisa: Meh.

Homer: But the TV gave the impression that…

Bart: We said meh.

Lisa: M-E-H. Meh.

I used to spell it m-y-e-h, but lately I'm seeing it as m-e-h everywhere. I use it as a textual shoulder shrug in my posts, usually.

@Josh you are the trailing edge of Generation X. The leading edge of Millennials are part of the Boom Echo which started in the early 80s. This article provides an excellent summary of the "4th Turning" theory of generations.

Your in the USA Josh. :tease:

Seriously though this is a worrying theory,

Quote

The Strauss–Howe generational theory, created by authors William Strauss and Neil Howe, describes a theorized recurring generation cycle in American history. Strauss and Howe laid the groundwork for their theory in their 1991 book Generations

not the theory itself mind you. The worry is the people who take it seriously,

Quote

Steve Bannon, Chief Strategist and Senior Counselor to President Trump is a prominent proponent of the theory.

Bannon is "very familiar with Strauss and Howe’s theory of crisis, and has been thinking about how to use it to achieve particular goals for quite a while.

There are two classes of people. Those who classify others into categories, and those who do not. :hysterical:

Strauss and Howe apply their theory to US history but I think it can be used more broadly in Western civilization as well. It's a fun theory but you have to be some sort of weirdo to try to get a practical application out of it. :w00tx100:

according to which article you read, you could be Generation X or Y Probably Y is closer.

Here is a chart I found.
Mel


Generations table

The following table summarizes what you need to know about Western generations so you can track your own in time.      



Generation
Births from
Births until
Coming of age
The G.I. Generation – Greatest Generation
1900
1924
1918 - 1942
The Silent Generation – Lucky Few
1925
1945
1943 - 1963
The Baby Boom Generation – Baby Boomers
1946
1965
1964 - 1983
Generation X – Latchkey Kids
1966
1979
1984 - 1997
Generation Y – Millennials
1980
1994
1998 - 2012
Generation Z – Gen Next
1995
2016
2013 - 2034

Most of these primary generations still have a role in today’s market place, but the recent research has shown that Millennials have overtaken Baby Boomers as largest generation in the US.

where I live, I'm referred to as "old, but awesome".  OTOH after 35+ years of loud rock music, guitars, drums, amplifiers, PA systems....perhaps my hearing isn't what it used to be.  but it sure sounds like "old, but awesome"!

"Awesome" and "fart" are easily confused for one another when you're hearing impaired.
