Friday Nite Fireworks -- April 18, 2018 -- The Next Big Thing

This will generate a fair amount of interest over the next year in the Bakken. From The Bismarck Tribune:
Mineral owners and their attorneys will be busy for the next two months reviewing a new study of the historical channel of the Missouri River, a report that aims to resolve disputes over oil and gas ownership.
Consultant Wenck Associates presented Tuesday an overview of its study of the ordinary high water mark of the Missouri River as it existed before the construction of the Garrison Dam, which created Lake Sakakawea.
The full survey and supporting materials will be made public by Friday at
I love maps.

Wait for Friday Nite fireworks.

The Next Big Thing

Speaking of fireworks, I've added this to "the next big thing" page.
LSD, micro-dosing, 24/7: yes, actually happening in Silicon Valley. The story "broke" in 2017, but is now hitting mainstream media, posted April 18, 2018.
I missed this a year ago, but better late than never.  Huge, huge "thank you" to Scott Adams.


Wiki now has a page on "millennials."

Follows "Generation X"; precedes "Generation Z." Therefore, also known as "Generation Y." 

Note: the correct spelling -- two "n's."

For various reasons, I'm going to update the following post by making one change. I'm changing the years of birth for millennials (previous, 1983 - 1998) to 1984 - 2000 (comes pretty close to range that wiki gives).
Millennials. Lots of talk these past few weeks about "millennials." Time to re-look at the "definitions. From an earlier post:
I had forgotten the "definition" of "Generation Z" but vaguely recalled blogging about it:
  • iGen, generation Z, centennials: 2000 -
  • oldest iGen: 2000 - 2005 (my thoughts -- teens in 2018)
  • middle iGen: 2006 - 2011 (my thoughts -- middle schoolers in 2018)
  • younger iGen: 2012 - (my thoughts -- pre-K in 2018)
  • millennials, generation Y, 1984 - 2000 
    • younger millennials (part of generation Y, children of baby boomers): 1992 - 2000
    • older millennials (part of generation Y, children of baby boomers): 1984 - 1991 (in 2017:  26 - 34)
  • generation X: 1965 - 1983 (no precise dates, late baby  boomers)
  • baby boomers: 1946 - 1964  
Definitions (from this site)
  • iGen, generation Z, centennials: 1996 --
  • millennials or generation Y: 1977 - 1995 (18-year span)
  • generation X: 1965 - 1976 (11-year span)
  • baby boomers: 1946 - 1964 (18-year span)
  • traditionalists or silent generation: born 1945 and before
Birth years important to me:
  • 2014: youngest iGen
  • 2006: middle iGen
  • 2003: oldest iGen
At age five years of life, for
  • the youngest iGen, 2019 - Apple's iPhone X
  • the middle iGen, 2012 - Apple's iPhone 4s
  • the oldest iGen, 2009 - Apple's iPhone 3g
There was a huge jump from iPhone 3, 4 to iPhone 6, 7, 8 and, then iPhone X. Based on iPhone models, the middle and oldest iGen generations are very similar; however, the youngest iGen generation is almost a new generation, being so much different than older iGen individuals.
