You can find out what generation you are by the response of a different generation to you. So it was that in a recent conversation I find out i’d been missing a whole junk of cultural changes, that no longer do years go BC and AD, apparently now its Common Era and BCE or “Before Common Era”.
Well why not have a TLA (three-letter acronym) if you’re changing history. But apparently we are not, ‘cos BCE replaces BC and Common Era replaces AD, so actually its just name calling that has changed. Oh well.
