Time is not just relative, it gives a whole new perspective of things that wasn't there. Think of it as an ultimate test to determine whether stuff is legit or not. And while some things remain unchanged, like the world still hailing Keanu Reeves, others turn sour, like an acidic vinegar you’d never, ever dare to call wine.

This phenomenon is known as poorly aged things, which means they not only didn’t get better over time, they got way worse to the point of passing cringe or meeting regrets. So in order to see some of the best of the worst real-life examples, we took a visit to the “Poorly Aged Things” Twitter account that does precisely what it says: “showcases poorly-aged things and blinx.”

With 719.9K followers and counting, it offers some of the most remarkable examples of feeling remorse over something you were honestly proud of before. How did this 180° change happen? I told you, it’s all time’s fault.

Part of the beauty (and the horror!) of the world we live in is that things are for the most part unforeseeable. I mean, nobody would have believed you if, back in 2018, you told us there was the greatest pandemic in modern history right around the corner that would forever change our lives as we were used to. But on 31 December 2019 (it’s hard to believe it was two years ago!) the coronavirus was first reported from Wuhan, China, from which it rapidly spread around the globe.

But what if we could have known it prior to the outbreak actually happening? Could we have changed the debilitating course of events that followed? The question may never have answers, but we can have a look at what it takes to make predictions about the future, and how accurate they actually are.

If you've never heard of superforecasting, it’s the practice of prediction that covers everything from whether a currency will become stronger, one country will invade another, or there will be civil unrest in a city. Superforecasters calculate the probability of something happening and then adjust that as circumstances change. In this way, they’re able to come up with consistent predictions.

But it’s much more complex than that. According to Bloomberg, superforecasters did not accurately predict Brexit, putting the chances of a Leave vote at 23% in June 2016—the month of the referendum. Their predicted figure had been higher a few months previously but they had adjusted the likelihood downwards, reports the BBC.

Being a superforecaster entails one quintessential personality trait, which is superior analytic ability. Philip Tetlock, the Leonore Annenberg University Professor in Democracy and Citizenship at the University of Pennsylvania, identified many people who could be turned into “superforecasters”—people whose analytic ability is considerably better than random people (or who, in financial analyst terms, “beat the market”).

It doesn’t mean trusting your gut is all there is, since analysts have to do many other things besides just forecast, but it surely helps, Philip argues. Other personality traits for a superforecaster include being intelligent, playing games and solving puzzles, being able to pragmatically use other people’s ideas, and being open-minded to new data which shows up.

I really don't care if I get down voted, but I know I will. Jk Rowling is not transphobic. I've seen her tweets. I'm not saying that all trans people are like this, and most trans people are wonderful and inspiring people. Sometimes, but very, very rarely men say that they are woman to get into woman's mental hospitals and refugee camps and do horrible things to them. I'm a massive supporter of trans people, but I believe that Jk Rowling is not homophobic. Down vote me because I don't care. Have an amazing day to whoever is reading this 🤩

Trans women are women. Trans men are men. Cis women have different life experiences to trans women and vice versa. Trans men have different life experiences to cis men and vice versa. And that's OK, because people's life journeys are different. No one's experience is more "valid" or "authentic" than anyone else's. There is no gatekeeper of "womanhood" or "manhood". I don't understand why this has to be a fight. Let love rule.

She makes a few comments about a controversial topic, and suddenly, everyone goes berserk. I will not say whether I support trans or not, because that is not the point. People are mad at her for expressing an opinion, and they always will be because people are always desperate for a reason for anger, drama, and pettiness. However, refusing to read a book because the author has different views is foolish. The books are great, whether the author is popular or not. We can't just cancel culture because we don't like it.

Anna Banana

We can, because we can all choose which values are important to us. For some it's not a big deal, but for others it's a dealbreaker, and they have the right to their feelings - and subsequent actions. I'm in my 30s so I don't particularly care about Harry Potter anymore, but I've stopped watching things with known sexual predators on cast because I don't feel comfortable. I can't get immersed and I don't take any joy from it anymore - so why should I keep watching? Because I would be called "foolish" otherwise?

But as soon as she started protecting women from men-who-think-are-women she's bad. Fortunatly for her, she's rich enough so she does not care in either case and she's just true to herself, not popular opinion

So, to summarize the general opinion of the Pandas here: If people feel insecure because they are very tall, with freckles, red haired, grey haired, old, fat, have a missing limb or are born with both genitals, we’re all pro body positivity: embrace your body and accept it as a part of who you are. But if people feel insecure about their sex (or in rare cases even their species) most Panda’s are suddenly pro body change. This doesn’t sound very consistent to me.
