If you were born between about 1966 and 1980, you're a proud member of Generation X, or Gen X for short. The name Generation X was popularized by a 1991 novel of the same name by Douglas Coupland.
Gen Xers came of age with MTV, John Hughes films, and all those '80s cartoons that seemed made just to sell toys. (We still love you, though, Care Bears.)
They also came of age with—and helped popularize—some truly tubular slang terms. We gathered together 10 slang terms that rose to prominence when many members of Generation X were at the height of their slang powers: the late 1970s to early 1990s.
Can you pick out any that you've used recently?
