Re: What's worse: nostalgia or anti-old timer bias?
Whats dangerous are these posters who think that modern technique equals smarter and more athletic as if the old timers were to primitive to even learn it. There is a prevalent bias in the media that claims the U.S. population is more politically, physically, mentally evolved than thier forriegn neighbors. All this stems from the prevalent University teachings that prehistoric human races such as Neanderthal and H.erectus were wiped out by the more evolved Cro Magnon man--no wonder we are hated. However, when you put our best athletes with all their scientifically advanced technique, sports medicine, steroids, equipment, etc..... they still cant beat the socalled primitive forriegn neighbors.
