Outright Bizarre Facts From The 1900s We Did NOT See Coming

Times change quickly these days. Hell, 2009 was a whole different world from 2019. But imagine going back 110 years ago, to 1909. Things were way different back then. I would almost say incomparable, but fact number 4 sounds just like people today, so I guess we can't have changed that much. Anyway, if you rekcon you know some things about what went down in the 1900s, have a squiz at these weird facts. They are random as f*ck and make me glad that I'm not living back then. Plus, you'll be king/queen of the next trivia night you attend.
