    Not neccesarily... I hate the whole "zomg hourglass figure!" mentality... huge breasts and a butt that wobbles O.o; WHY!?

    Oh well, whot can yeu do.

    At least some of the more silly styles like "break yeur feet so they're smaller" or "tie a flat board to yeur skull to flatten it" are out of style...

    Piercings, tattoos, and circumcisions (they really have zero health benefits, it's a myth to perpetuate it, even if it's not really harmful either, and most people agree they look better... I disagree but apparantly I'm in minority >.> Wait I didn't say that! Durr whot's it look like O.o )

    In any case, physical appearance changes like those are just stupid. But go figure.

    OK but you get my point, there is a fair old amount of stuff that we do today that will seem quanit or stupid, eve very preciously held assumptions.

    Right now we can measure thought, we have no idea what thought looks like as a construct.... (sorry thoughts are my big thing this week)
