C'est plus ca change...

I picked up a book yesterday and it fell open at the page below. It's a general moan about how complicated life has become and how the youth of today are pants. It's remarkably relevant stuff - and all the more interesting as it was written during the Battle of Britain. It cheered me no end as it's clear we're worrying about the same silly stuff that our great/grandparents worried about.
