Gen X Neologisms

Neologisms from D. Coupland's Generation X. Phrases such as Legislated Nostalgia- To force a body of people to have memories that they do not actually possess: "How can I be a part of the 1960s generation when I don't even remember any of it?" and Air Family- The false sense of community experienced among coworkers in an office environment. Some are more useful/entertaining than others.
