|Same storm; bigger teacup.

It's amazing how even if you leave college, college never leaves you. I have an odd musing about degrees and the like but it's not that.|
So, I was having dinner with friends, and we got talking about old acquaintances, and the shit they pulled. In fact, some things people did things that caused a major storm in a teacup, with the teacup just being a relatively small bunch of people.
After college, you move on; you meet, and work, with different people. You're introduced to different social circles than in college, and those old groups generally disperse. Such is the way of things. Sometimes you gravitate back to each other, but all of you have trod different paths, and you all see bigger pictures than when you were in college. You're different people meeting again.
Then you find someone from your college years, causing the same sort of storm as before, just in a bigger teacup. Half a decade, or even a whole one, is both a long and a short time for someone to change. So here's the rub, if you see the same storm, with the same characteristics, only bigger, can you assume they're pulling the same crap as before?
