    Romans 10:13 - For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.
    Acts 3:19 - Repent therefore and turn to God, so that your sins may be blotted out, in order that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.
    Ephesians 6:11 - Put on the whole armor of God, so that you can stand firm against the schemes of the devil.

I don't think it is so much that they have lost that ability, as it is that they never knew it as a part of life. Many of them began their toddler years with a cell phone in their hands most of the day. At first, it was just a toy. Then it became their first friend. Now, it is their existence. They honestly do live through a 3"x7" screen of plastic.
    I keep my virtual window smaller than three by seven. My "world's smallest android phone" is the smartphone for people who don't like smartphones. I can catch up on the forum if I really wanna, but I usually use it for a media player and to (get this!) talk to people on the phone.

    But I was referring to download speed. For a registered, card-carrying nerd the fact that I can get broadband so easily is wonderful. The majority of the user-friendly Linux distros all weigh in at well over a gigabyte. On dialup that would take DAYS to download.

    The 30's. The decade of smelting the iron. The Great Depression should have been called the Great Equalizer as economic class barriers blurred, steerage become coach, and the smelting began. Impurities jumped out of 40 story buildings.

    The forsaken, the forlorn, the dust choked brow beaten masses became the refined. I don't think the atrocities of WWII would have been survived without the fire.

    I don't have a favorite decade, but I do have a least favorite decade - 1960s. That's when the post-WW2 baby boomers in America grew up and somehow turned an understandable anti-war movement into a general rebellion against tradition, moral values and social responsibility. And because the USA was/is the leading superpower of the Western world, the so called Sexual Revolution spread across the world and ruined the modern world I was born into.

    I look at fashion, music, lifestyle and culture and think I was born at least 50 years too late!

    Probably the 80's.There was alot of naff stuff - but there was also cool stuff.Think roller skating rings, milkbars ( although they had those in the 60's in the U.S. too) perms, glitter make up, synth pop, soda streams, David Numan, David Bowie....then ofcourse we also had movies celebrating greed with one liners by actors like Michael Douglas saying," Greed is good"....we had the homosexual revolution, the rise of AIDS, neon anything and everything - which is so common...we had excruciating aerobics classes with celebrities like Jane Fonda saying, "Feel the burn!" ....and mullet headed John Farnham dominating the airwaves for months on end......I geuss it evened out in the end.

    Somewhere in Trondheim (about the middle of Norway), they have (or at least had) a milk bar that is made to look like a US style one- I've only been there once, a long time ago, but that picture of yours took me right back there

    oh, and my parents have a soda stream, they've become popular again I think

    I would say 1900. Industrial revolution, before the wars, Jobs were being created, people had a good living and families survived and thrived together. Every one had strong ethics and morals and it was a time when people viewed suicide as a tragedy. Now our government is legalizing it and no one cares, kinda sad if you ask me.

    Plus It was about the 20's during the great depression when they stopped covering spiritual and moral issues and started covering movies and entertainment and sports. Funny, the way its covered now is like the depression never ended lol.

    For music: The 70s.
    Fashion statements: 80s
    Entertainment: 90s

    Choosing one decade for the overall zeitgeist is difficult.
