What surprises me is the general lack of recognition that:

- people change, and a person at, say, 53 is very different from his 17-year-old self (I know that I am pretty different now from what I used to be 10-15 years ago, and completely different from what I was at, say, 14)
- cultural norms change
- sexual arousal can cloud the mind (I think Dan Ariely wrote about a series of experiments among college students that demonstrated that in an aroused state young men were more likely to perform actions they would not normally consider)
