Humor: What Would Instagram be Like if it Had Been Invented in the ’80s?

Here’s a fun little thought experiment for you: what would Instagram have been like if the filter-tastic service had been invented back in the 1980s? Well, in the most recent episode of Wonders of the World Wide Web, the folks at Squirrel-Monkey try to answer that question… with a little touch of humor of course.

We won’t ruin the details for you, but suffice it to say 1980s Instagram offers a lot less filter options and requires that you take a short jaunt to the local gas station every time you want to turn a snapshot into a slightly blurry, pixelated or sepia-toned versions of the original.

    Aww, jaguars are adorable when they’re just a year old, but they get pretty ferocious when they’re not kittens anymore.
