Our generation is full of people asking questions. Why does this happen, why can't we treat each other equally, why can't we just blow into a Nintendo Wii to make it work like we could in the old days. Generation Why successfully demonstrates to others our curiosity, our scientific nature and our ability to solve questions by listening.
But more importantly this is a great name for our generation because it's ironic.
My generation loves irony. Like a fat kids loves diet coke... completely ironically.
