Two responses in the Sydney Morning Herald to bureau of statistics classification of baby boomers as anyone from the age of 40 upwards:

I object to the bureau of statistics branding me a baby boomer. Born in 1969 and believing I was part of generation X, I have faithfully practised cynicism and sloth all these years. By the definitions of the bureau, Kurt Cobain, once considered the “spokesman of generation X” would also be a baby boomer.

Forty years old and lumped in with the baby boomers. It’s enough to give me grey hair.
