* A source of humor in ''Film/TheFinalGirls'' comes from the differences between the main characters and the 80's campers they find inside the movie. Particularly, the treatment of LGBT people(Chris, who [[HasTwoMommies was raised by a gay couple]] gets easily mad by one of the campers making homophobic comments) and technology(Vicki trying to explain to another camper how smartphones work).

** To be fair it's established that Gus won't tell a teacher because kids do t believe in snitching which is still a common attitude in schools even today, and there's no teachers or other staff around to witness the incident(even when bullying policies were more lax it still wasn't permitted and there would have been '''some''' punishment especially given the rather savage extent of the beating) and so the only adults aware would be Gus's parents who may believe in standing up to bullies as the best solution, which would fit the attitude of a career military man. There's also no way Gus could be expelled, since he didn't hit Gelman back and even if he did it would have been ruled self defense since Gelman clearly wasn't going to let him simply walk away. If anything Gus's parents could have a potential lawsuit against the school since it occurred on school property and the playground was unsupervised despite the large amount of kids still on it.

* ''Series/AmericanGods2017'' shows us how ridiculus quick this can come. One of the Antagonists is The Technical Boy, the AnthropomorphicPersonification of the Internet. In the 1999 book he is portrayed as a pimply, overweight teenager in a Matrix-coat who tries to act a lot tougher than he is. In the 2017 series, while still fairly young, he's more of an obnoxious, Mark Zuckerberg-esque hipster douchebag who vapes in his pure white limo, and is far more violent, in representation of the overly hostile [[GIFT]]-populace and how they have led to increased real-world violence. As Gaiman put it:

--> ''"Technical Boys in 1999 were living in their moms' basements and trying to figure out how to order a pizza through the Internet. (Now) they are abusing people in the back of Ubers or monetizing fake news."''

** The football team causes several problems. The one black football player hooks up with the one black prostitute, who I don't recall being in the rest of the movie, because [[WhereDaWhiteWomenAt interracial]] [[BlackGalOnWhiteGuyDrama sex]] is worse than prostitution, presumably. Plus, the lyrics make it clear that the team expects to "get made", that is, lose their collective virginity. The idea that the football team of a major university in the 1970s are all virgins is ludicrous; hell, it would be far-fetched if a ''high school'' team in the ''1950s'' were ''all'' virgins.
