It's amazing how little we change :P.
Shitposting. Shitposting never changes.
Dicks, butts, mom jokes, "I just had sex" statements and meaningless self-promotion in absence of any qualities advertised whether positive or negative have been a part of human condition for as long as we have had any sort of written language.
That said, penises.

And the now classic "you bastard gave me low quality copper!" from ancient Babylon, circa 1750 B.C.
@PaladinQuinn Years ago, in the early beginnings of social media---I doubt it still exists unless someone put it the Wayback Machine, someone translated The Pillow Book of Sei Shonagon into the form of a social media blog to demonstrate that its content was hardly different from any modern college girl blog. Part of the reason for that, is that it really WAS early social media. The fashion in those days was to leave those lying around "accidentally on purpose", while feigning a private diary.
@PaladinQuinn I literally laughed aloud at "this is very high"
I love how humans have literally not changed through history like the graffiti from Pompeii has people from hundreds of years ago writing stuff like "Marcus is gay" "I fucked a girl here" "Julius your mum wishes she was with me" and leonardo da vinci's assistants drew dicks in their notebooks just for the banter and mozart created a piece called "kiss my ass" so when people wish for 'today's generation' to be like 'how people used to' then we're already there buddy we've always been
The Hagia Sophia has inscriptions that were considered sacred for centuries until they were deciphere in the 70s to be Nordic runes saying "Halfdan wrote this"
my old english prof told us that theres a cave in Scandinavia where a viking grafitied some runes like 14 feet up on the wall and when they finally reached it all it translated into was "this is very high"
Now on the History Channel
@PaladinQuinn Btw, if anyone's interested in sources, I looked up the Hagia Sophia one. There's not just one, but two of them. Halfdan and Ári/Árni. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Runic_inscriptions_in_Hagia_Sophia
@PaladinQuinn This is amazing. I love this
