Pargenz, here's one to add to your collection:

1958: Johnny goes up to the pharmacy counter when no one else is close by and in a normal tone says"give me a pack of Marlboros" and then in a hushed tone says "and a package of rubbers".

2012: Johnny goes up to the pharmacy counter when no one else is close by and in a normal tone says "give me a package of condoms" and then in a hushed tone says "and a pack of Marlboros".

1958: Susie wears a skirt above her knees to school with a spaghetti strap tank top and slip on shoes. Gets sent to the principals office where both her parents are waiting to take her home to have her change into something more modest and tell her why it's important to dress like a respectful lady. Marries a man who respects and loves her THEN have kids.

2012: Girls wear skirts above their knees to school, church, and pretty much everywhere else with spaghetti strap tank tops and slip on shoes. No one notices a problem with this it is "the style", some adult women dress the same and think it looks cute on their girls. Gets the attention of several guys, has a few kids, moves in with her parents to help take care of the kids, and gets financial help from the state.

the guys are blamed for being irresponsible and disrespectful

*this doesn't apply to all women so don't throw a hissy fit

Not exactly High School in 1958.. Was only 4.. But imagine this

Family coming home from wonderful vacation together in a 1958 Olds.. 3 kids in the back.. parents up front.. Everyone stretching out and trying to take a lil nap.. so the 4 year old,, crawls up behind the back seat, under the rear window and quickly stretches out and falls asleep.

1958: Harmony and a nice quite ride home for the family after a very busy family vacation..
2012: Highway patrol sees such a lawless violation and quickly pulls over the family.. Drags both mom and dad out of the car for frisking and cuffing while social services is called. Parents are haul'd off to jail while kids are taken to foster home...

Unfortunatly your right Pargenz. I don't know what the 50's were like(only 32) but I do work in a tough urban school system where everyone has to be afraid of lawsuits and losing thier certification. Its a shame because there really are some excellent teachers and parents out there. And hug a kid who is crying, your crazy, you'll get brought up on charges. Its a damn shame.

Sophomore male riding a bus to a field trip moons 2 young women in the back window of the bus. Young women turn out to be school teachers who were "offended" by the action.
Teachers got the name of the school off the side of the bus(DOH!!) and call principal the next morning.

1981-- Student gets called to principle's office, gets his ass chewed, and is asked to write a letter of apology to the teachers. Principle is told that it was a harmless prank, and told to go blow his apology out his ass. End of discussion, nothing else happens, nothing more was ever said.

2012-- Teachers call police immediately on cell phone, bus is stopped by 6 law separate agencies. Student dragged off bus and arrested as a sexual predator. Drug dog called, bus driver, teacher and 3 other students arrested for possession of pot. Highway is blocked for 8 hours. Flasher is registered as a sex offender and cannot live, travel, or work within 4 miles of civilization until his 45th birthday, ends up on government assistance gathering a house full of guns, ammo and pipe bombs while planning an overthrow of the Walmart corporation for not allowing him to buy underwear made in America.
