I like the bell curve we got going on. On the subject of growing up in previous eras: I think I would rather grow up with the current generation. It seems people are getting more and more accepting of people's differences. And the Internet? On demand TV with no commercials and porn for days. I'm sure it has other cool things but those 2 alone would make puberty go smoother. The only downside I can see is too much social media. Growing up is tough, I can't imagine doing it with the backdrop of the constant interconnected world of Facebook and the like.
