40 Things From The Past That Did Not Age Well (New Pics)


The future turned out a whole lot differently than people expected. For example, Simon Newcomb, a Canadian-American astronomer and mathematician, said: “Flight by machines heavier than air is unpractical and insignificant, if not utterly impossible.” 18 months later, the Wright Brothers flew a Kittyhawk. To prove that you can’t reallyknow what’s going to happen, Bored Panda has compiled a list of things that seemed OK at the time, but have become ridiculously absurd. Like, diet candy AYDS. Or acceptance speeches thanking Harvey Weinstein. Scroll down to check out the entries and if they’re not enough, fire up Bored Panda‘s earlier compilation of 30 Posts From The Past That Did Not Age Well.

The episode of Seinfeld where Elaine is dating a guy who shares a name with a murderer. He keeps getting mistaken for him so she gets him to change his name. She picks up a sports magazine and is trying to find a name for him in there, and comes up with “OJ” (Simpson, she was referring to). The episode was from 93, the murders happened 94.

The whole “cousins” thing they pulled in the english dub of Sailor Moon back in the day with Haruka and Michiru (named “Amara” and “Michelle” in the dub), who were originally written as a lesbian couple.

I know that lesbian couples in a kid’s show would have been a big deal at the time that it came out, but looking back now, they really did a piss-poor job at trying to make their relationship not seem romantic while also claiming they were related
