Things We Worry About, And The Insane Ways They've Changed

Cracked pays people to make smart memes. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get in on it.

It seems like everyone's worried, right now. It's not that we haven't been worrying all our lives - that's human nature. What has changed is the things we currently need to worry about. We've changed. Our lives have changed. The world has changed.

We asked our readers to show us side-by-side comparisons of the things they used to worry about, vs. the things they worry about now. The winner is below, but first, the runners-up:
