The more things change: 1694

The present State of the Designs and Studies of Mankind is so very different from what it was 150 Years ago, that it is no Wonder if Men's Notions concerning them vary as much as the Things themselves.

--From Reflections upon ancient and modern learning--

Still true!

I mean in 1694 they had the black death.

In 2009 we have Sarah Jessica Parker and Robin Williams.

Same thing.
