the struggle

I dig stuff like this. It exemplifies how every generation has a penchant for creating struggle-based hagiographies, of course without ever mentioning how acts—like the one pictured—aren’t JUST alien to kids of whatever ‘modern’ era they’re shitting on, but those of several bygone eras. I mean for crying out loud we were manipulating electric light clay?! Light clay that was lovingly molded into athletic Italian plumbers, intrepid boy explorers, speedy hedgehogs and so on and so forth. I’ve seen similar memes that speak to the ‘struggle’ that was lugging around CDs and miniature CD players, completely ignorant to the fact that radios once looked like this!!! Oh, and grandpop don’t you start getting all hagio-eyed. No matter how big that thing was it was still a magical device that could snatch sound out of the damn air!!! Oh, and don’t you say nothin’ either great, great grandma. With your access to portable collections of ideas and stories that transported you to different parts of the world and into the deep dark recesses of other people’s minds all without the need for batteries or any sort of external power source. Oh, and ancient-ass ancestor, you bet’ not— Actually, let me stop. I’m pretty sure you can see where I’m GOING with this
