The decline of manhood: 1632

O miserable and effeminate age! when vertue by most men is despised, and neglected, and sensuall vice every where exalted : Nay; ruffian Pandors, by hopefull youth and prodigall gallants, are now clothed, Coatched, and richly rewarded; whilst best merits and highest deserts, of rarest spirits, are neither looked to, set by, nor regarded.
--From The totall discourse of the rare adventures...--

 Every man since 1590: total pussy.

Your blog never ceases to amaze me. Really, truly, some things never change.

Dude, they did wear puffy shirts and pantaloons.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

There are a lot of old ideas. I think if anything changes, it's the percentage of the population that thinks them.
