Boobies...and more

That was actually a well thought out article. I may not agree with everything in it but I enjoyed the premises and the logic behind writing.

Bare boobies. Fake apparently, but nevertheless...

Dan Rowan got a couple of them spot-the-fark-on, in jokes in the late 1960s on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In:

Police car from Demolition Man, which was made in 1993:

The Honda Insight:

Curious fact: shortly after Demolition Man, my family noticed that car designs RADICALLY changed. I had a 1995 Mercury Tracer, and it was still "pointy", actually had angles and corners. A generation later, all the cars started getting rounded off.

/So, my tracer was called a "Pre Demolition Man" Design

FTA regarding childcare in the UK: "In order to look after your neighbour's children if the parents should want a night off at a restaurant, you'll need to go through a government screening procedure, and pay for the privilege. Parents who leave their children with anyone not thus certified, even if it's their neighbour of thirty years, risk harsh intervention from social services."

Total rubbish.
Babysitters

Babysitters often care for children in the family home either to provide time for leisure activities or to bridge gaps in other childcare arrangements. Often babysitters are friends or neighbours who are well known to the family.

Parents need to be aware that if they leave a child with a babysitter under the age of 16, the parents remain legally responsible for the children during that time. There is no independent mechanism for a babysitter to have a Criminal Records Bureau check.

The entry for shaved heads seemed kinda odd, but I'll give it leeway because I was only 10 in '92 and have little idea of how common it was to shave your head out of fashion then (oddly enough, I do shave my entire head bald on a regular basis).

Though Brazil being on there for predicting "The 'litigious society' / passive-aggressive corporate management" is so-so considering that Kafka was THE guy who predicted that with books like The Trial and The Castle.

Plus Village of The Damned, while fair in being labeled as a horror film about Communist infiltration (because what sci-fi film then wasn't?), was also a reaction to the perceived growth in youth violence and rebellion during the 50s and 60s. Films like The Wild One and Rebel Without a Cause, as well as many MST'ed drive-in shlock, presented a more literal look at the phenomenon.

Still, an interesting article, none the less.

I think the shaved heads thing started with black athletes in America and then spread out from there.

I actually find it kind of refreshing to see such a ridiculous claim that isn't rooted in partisan politics.

Ahem, the real start of the shaved head fashion:

The Little Jerry (Original air date 19 Dec 1996)

JERRY: Is he from the future?

ELAINE: No, he just shaves his head. I think it's pretty gutsy.

...

JERRY: So he just shaves his head for no reason?

GEORGE: That's like using a wheelchair for the fun of it!

If only real implants had looked as good as the movie effect breast enlargement on Gynoid Ross.

the inexorable rise of children's rights
Modern kids ... they're still scarier than they've ever been


Damn those children and their "rights". First its "you cannot beat children (even your own)" then it's "you must educate your children". Next thing you know 10-year-olds will be refusing to work when their parents drop them off at a farm, or refusing to work more than 80 hours a week, or demanding they be paid the federal minimum wage for their work. We must stop the menace of "children's rights" before it's too late.

*pout* Movie comes out with rounded off cars, suddenly cars get rounded off. Yes it's a silly observation and its probably coincidence, but the same can be said for the article.

Demolition Man used actual concept cars, remember reading about the "police car" in Popular Mechanics, so it's not entirely silly.

It's called fashion. And, like much fashion from the late 90's, was based on blandness. Wasn't the Tracer just a Escort from Ford's "punishment for not having a truck" line of vehicles?

Hell, I dunno. It was my first car, it was cheap, it got 30mpg no matter what I did to it. It was also indestructible. It ran with all the belts broken (at least long enough to limp into the shop), it ran missing teeth on the timing belt. Now the pinch welds are rusted through, the trunk rusted through, the wheel wells rusted (that damn Michigan salt! Even washing it every week in the winter you may as well be fighting the tide). It was sold for four hundred bucks to a friend of my mom's, whose boyfriend welded everything back up as he could. It's still running.

When was Robocop in theaters? They had actual rounded off Fords in those. No concept car needed. Chevy had commercials mocking the Taurus for being rounded off, but they rounded their own cars off soon enough.
