I have read that archaeologists have found mother-in-law jokes in ancient 
Egyptian hierogliphics in the pyramids.

We have about 10,000 years of some kind of written history. In all those 
records, there is not one indication that basic human nature has changed. 
Why should children and parents today act in any substantially different way 
toward each other (or any people toward each other) than they did 2,000, 
4,000, or 8,000 years ago?
