I came across this interesting article on Fixing Your Terrible, Insecure Passwords in Five Minutes.

It is not related to the blog above, but I did not know where to put it. It is very interesting.

It does seem that all the positive elements of the childhood models such as Roy Rogers and Superman show young children that good defeated evil in every situation. The most productive income producing movies today would include shows about aliens, vampires, and destruction of societies. Either in theory or practible with children. There is a theme that children do believe in an armageddon or an eventual destruction of our modern high-tech society and those feelings and emotionals probably promote movie producers to create movies that fall on the dark side to turn our lives upside down.

The dark-side phenomenon is an interesting trend in American Society, but in all reality it started a long time ago. While young girls today may be sporting twilight lunch boxes, girls in the 70’s could find yellow submarine lunch boxes. Good natured vampires who only eat animals as an attempt to be more humane, or LSD laced songs about colorful lives lived beneath the sea… is there a change?

I think yes, but only in the medium in which it is conveyed. The concept is still essentially the same. The fascination with what you’re not supposed to do will always be there, why else would college freshmen go crazy as soon as they’re out of the protective eye of their parents. Which, as we all know, is not a recent trend.

Yes but the point is that these social moods determine what happens. Universities have entire depts devoted to finding the 'fundamental price' ofa stock, are you kidding me, prices never stay the same, they are the result of social mood, look at any price chart for the last year, do you see a 'fundamental price?

INdeed mary Shelley wrote Frankenstein wy back in the 1800s the point is that it was a change in social mood then also

Dont forget about all the people who while watching the original Star Wars movies felt that the best characters were Darth Vader and Boba Fett, tow of the most popular charecters in the entire franchise
