  • you mean like an adult white male just poofed here from 1950...

    internet. definitely the internet. i mean they barely had computers, and they were giant room sized ones at that. and now we can access the world's information in the palm of our hands!?! that would be crazy!

    i also think civil rights would be hard to explain: no segregation, women working outside the home after having kids, and SSM rights. i would imagine that could be a difficult thing to get use to.

  • I think about things like this all the time. Especially since reading Stephen King's new book 11/22/63.

    I think it would be fun to explain to a man of that era that I am a mom who works outside the home full time. lol
