question of the weekend: If someone from the 1950s suddenly appeared today, what would be the most difficult thing to explain to them about life today?

1950s future kitchen

Today’s question comes via something Lanna Lee posted on Facebook, which apparently originated on Reddit:
If someone from the 1950s suddenly appeared today, what would be the most difficult thing to explain to them about life today?

I suspect it would be the social changes, not the technological ones, that would stun a 1950s person the most. To hear that it’s likely that “your wife” would not be busy in the kitchen making dinner with the high-tech “microwave” oven would probably more shocking than the existence of the microwave oven. Maybe it would be a married interracial gay couple and their adopted child making dinner in “their kitchen”!

What do you think?
