We all talk of 'the good old days' but were they really? In some cases, they may not have been. as TWQ (The Weekend Question) asks this week.
Can you name some things that were better in the past, and also some improvements in today's way of life? List as many as you like.
My answers are:
Better in the Past:
Education: Children were taught without the aid of calculators and could do it all in their head. Now they are unable to do so. Exams were a lot tougher. TRhey have to be easier now, otherwise no one would pass them.
Sportsmanship: Everybody was more sporting; now it's just about money.
Communication: People can call each other via a cell phone or contact each other by e mail around the world.
Home entertainment: People have DVDs with crisp sound and sharp pictures. They can see the films when they like and not on the tv laced with adverts.
Now it's over to you...
