Kids Today vs. Kids of 1982 [Infographic]


Hey, remember the ‘80s?

It might be four Presidents ago, seven Olympics ago, and several questionable iterations of fashion ago, but the totally radical kids of 1982 have more in common than you think with their iPad packing equivalent of today.

Kids today are less likely to graduate, but more likely to go to college. They’re less likely to smoke cigarettes or marijuana, and they can make more money than their ‘80s counterparts.

Can we draw a line from Olivia Newton John to Adele? From Pete Rose to LeBron James? Who is the Justin Bieber of 1982? Is there be an equivalent to Michael Jackson’s Thriller today? Will the people of 2042 look back at some of our fashion the way we look back at leg warmers and big hair?

Read on to see just how far kids have come since 1982, and just how much things stay the same.
