A suburb of Chicago, located to the southwest of the city. Orland Park is viewed as a haven of rich, white, preppy kids. This is a rather unfair generalization, as most of its residents are middle-class, and the only reason people are seen as "rich" is because no one ever saves their money. Splurge is the name of the game in Orland Park.

Orland Park is home to a very large cross-section of drug users and alcoholics. Abuse of prescription drugs, like Vicodin and Adderal}, and non-prescription drugs like No-Doz and Robitussin, is fairly common among younger teens. Illegal drugs such as marijuana and cocaine are quite prevalent in populace, as is ecstacy and LSD, much to the chagrin of the local police force, who tend to spend more time charging people with crimes pertaining to illegal substances. Alcoholism is probably the most common vice, with several drunk driving arrests every week, with even more who don't get caught. Domestic Abuse is also common, but goes largely unreported.

Thieves and other such unsavory characters come from all around to shoplift from any of several hundred stores in the area. If they're not black, they're foreign (generally from the former Soviet Bloc countries), but are almost always poor.

Many young people here are posers, be it Scene posers, Ghetto posers, or what have you. Most of them will deny any affiliation, but are clearly trying to be part of something.

The terrible truth about Orland Park is that the "affluence" of the area (barely) hides the extraordinary amount of lowlives and petty criminals within.

Apart from the foibles of it's people, Orland Park is not really a bad place. It seems stagnated to long-time residents, but there are still plenty of things you can do around here. If you're not able to have fun here, then you're not far from someplace where the fun is. Prices are ridiculous if you need gas or cigarettes, but since Will County is so close, it's easy to get around the high prices.

There is very little undeveloped land, most of it being commercial area. The undeveloped areas are either incapable of sustaining buildings, or is federally protected forest, or wetland. Strip malls are abundant, but usually contain identical stores. There is no shortage of ways to lose your money here.
Chicagoan: Orland Park people wish they lived here.
Orlander: Right, because I want all my stuff stolen and I wanna get shot.
Chicagoan: That's a stereotype.
Orlander: So's what you said.

1. A song by Black Sabbath, appearing on the album "Vol. 4"

2. A type of trip experienced during psychedelic drug use. User on a supernaut trip will typically feel lighter than air and be able to travel around the globe at high speeds. Not uncommon is the altering of colors within the trip. Supernautical trips are easier to come by while listening to psychedelic music, but is also possible during a hard rock or heavy metal session.
1. What song is this? It sounds super cool.
It's Supernaut by Black Sabbath.

2. I put on an acid rock CD and did some salvia, and I had a Supernaut trip.

Generation Y is harder to define. The only reason for that is that we are still involved in it and therefore still doing research. (By the way, whenever I say, "we," I mean we. Me and my friends have spent long hours thinking through all this stuff.)

Generation Y started fresh off the crash/burn of Generation X; a kind of rise from the ashes. Generation Y involved anyone who attended/completed high school between 1997 and now. Most of those heavily involved in GenY have had an older sibling heavily involved in GenX. GenY has suffered a divide, unlike our predecessors, in that few groups of people ever come together against something. Associations are limited. There is an abundance of us, however. Our younger siblings may end up being a Generation Z, but that remains to be seen.

Generation Y still have competition from a second wave of Gen-Xers. The new Gen-Xers are in typical fashion of days of yore, but with contemporary styles. Generation Y pervades this, but all in all lives alongside it. Generation Y kids tend to be more vocal about things, but usually do less.

Drug use is still rampant, that's for sure.

More will be added as research is developed. Bear with us.
Generation Y started in '97, possibly climaxed in '03, the stagnation of the culture became evident in '05, and may be ending this year, if not next year.

People that completed high school at any time between 1989 and 1996. Stragglers have been identified through the class of 2000, but were the minority of their graduating class. In its heyday, Generation X boasted some high numbers. MTV was a haven for Gen-Xers, and has been described as, "the only TV channel that didn't care just as much as you." Gen-Xers can come in a variety. Light Xers are usually just into the music and don't really look the part. Medium Xers were way into the music, and could be easily identified. Heavy Xers were about nothing but the music, and took the lifestyle to it's limits. Major Xers are identifiable even today; they usually wear clothes they didn't buy or are older than they are, tend to talk slowly, and feel more at home in a dark room. Grunge permeated in this time period, and it fit the bill.

Very characterized by music.

Light X: Nirvana, Pearl Jam, other major radio bands
Mid-X: All of the above, Monster Magnet, Kyuss, other bands that started small and "got big."
Heavy X: All of the above, Fu Manchu, Soul Coughing, other bands that stayed small but got major underground movement.
Major X: All of the above, The Atomic Bitchwax, Desert Sessions, bands that remained underground or even "indie."

Generation Xers were complete stoners. Most clean up, but some don't. If someone claims to be GenX but doesn't/didn't do drugs, they are liars.

GenX was a great place to be a part of. The world had it's troubles, but they just didn't care enough to do anything about it. It's okay because they still had the support of the people who did do the activism. True harmony.

Generation X was followed by a major culture change, then culture shock, then was followed with Generation Y. Generation Y is still in existance as of today 1/5/06, but will probably peter out as the year progresses.
Generation X started in '89, climaxed in '94, fell out of place in '97, and died out in '00.

orland park slang for a short cigarette. claytons come about by removing the cherry from a half-smoked hundo, and placing it back in the box to be finished later. the term is nearly exclusive to the region, but has confirmed uses in some illinois college towns.

stoner 2: then make a clayton out of it and finish it later.
