Re: Where are the younger people?
I was born in 1983, definitely a "child of the 90s" ...but...I grew up on a farm...had a 19" TV that was nearly never on...wasn't allowed to play "Doom" (Mom caught me playing Wolfenstien 3d once...made me delete it)...was thrown outside and told not to come inside until the fireflies came out..and my idea of a good time was when my cousins would come over and we'd build hay forts in the barn, shoot each other with "pea shooters" [hollow aluminum arrows that we would use as blow guns to shoot soybeans], and whack at each other with wooden swords playing "capture the flag." My parents' idea of a good vacation was either hiking in Glacier National Park, or (the lap of luxury for us) going to a guest ranch in Colorado. I'm guessing that my upbringing is very non-typical for my generation...
