I think that over time things have changed so much do to people changing their interests and norms. Fashions have changed so we don’t wear the same things anymore or wear the same type of clothing. The way people act has changed because certain things have become socially acceptable where as before there were not. Places people work have changed because we don’t have record stores anymore and its harder to get a job in our time. For a lot of them you have to be 18 or meet certain requirements. We look back at our parents and grandparents and think the things they did and the way they grew up was weird but 30 years from now people are going to look back at us and think that we’re weird too.
