    Mr. Kemetstry you are right in a very basic sense that Fortune 50 Corporations, every type of intelligence and law enforcement agency and other entities as national and global investment trading firms, etc are vigorously pressuring any and every government agency controlling anything that has a hand in our economy that can't outrun them to have paper currency removed from their spheres of control and tracking and we all know why. The real world problem with a total elimination of any type of tangible currency, paper, coin, Government sponsored Treasury notes, bills and investment banking money market, capitol gains funds & private bearer bonds are based on the market value of such backed by our Gold Standard that lies in the bowels of Fort Knox and the balance of International loans to us held by other First World Nations which if even one country called in their individual accrued loan held in escrow by guess who? The Federal Reserve Bank. America as we know it would cease to exist in the global economy and the nation requesting we satisfy their loan agreement would definitely collect their debt by a massive cyber attack on every section of our infrastructure shutting every computer controlled and maintained mainframe down or commit to an unbelievably horrendous bloody conventional military invasion (lest their citizenry start an insurrection and they would overthrow the existing power structure to collect their money the government probably already refused to release) which would more then likely escalate into WWIII. This scenario was touched on in the movie "Countdown to Looking Glass". Several national and global White Papers have been written concerning this issue. Quite boring and one needs an education in economics and geopolitics to understand the graphical template but just the basic understanding of the implications of a currency free America are quite sobering. If such a thing were to happen I truly would not want to be alive to witness the global catastrophic consequences.

    I find researching statistics almost as bad as throwing up in public but here goes Mr. Kemetstry. Every statistic has it's variables so here are a few sources and their estimates on the Millennial age spread.

    1. NY Times: 1976-1998
    2. Newsweek: 1977-1994
    3. Hower and Strauss: 1982-2004
    4. Time: 1980-2000
    5. U.S. Census Bureau: 1976-2004 Note: They make this clear that the age spread is only their "opinion" based on marketing data since that's not their primary area of responsibility.

    As in oldest of the litter (kiss) ... In other words, the first born of that generation in contrast to the last born. Lastly, the entire generation exceeds puberty :facepalm:



    GENERATIONS X,Y, Z AND THE OTHERS

    Generation Y, Echo Boomers or Millenniums

    Born: 1977-1994
    Coming of Age: 1998-2006
    Age in 2004: 10 to 22
    Current Population: 71 million

    The largest cohort since the Baby Boomers, their high numbers reflect their
    births as that of their parent generation. The last of the Boomer Is and most of
    the Boomer II s. Gen Y kids are known as incredibly sophisticated, technology
    wise, immune to most traditional marketing and sales pitches…as they not only
    grew up with it all, they’ve seen it all and been exposed to it all since
    early childhood ...

    Generations X,Y, Z and the Others

    We often use phrases or words that we don’t fully understand. Sometimes we even use words or phrases the meanings of which we are totally clueless. As people with a passion for words and language, that is generally not viewed as a desirable...

    X,Y,& Z are not true millennials. The oldest millennials are still in their late 20s, early 30s. They still play video games and don't know what an LP is. Millennials have always had cell phones. They tend to hate baseball. They seem to be commies

    Cease fire, mutual surrender or truce? You decide.

    My sincerest apologizes for the profanity, couldn't find a G Rated meme for the truce. Even peace can be violent.
