    ?? THE YEAR 1906 ??

    ?? THE YEAR 1906 ??

    This will boggle your mind,
    I know it did mine !

    The year is 1906.
    One hundred years ago.
    What a difference a century makes !
    Here are some of the U.S. Statistics for the Year 1906


    The average life expectancy in the U.S. Was 47

    A three-minute call from Denver
    To New York City
    Cost eleven dollars.

    There were only 8,000 cars in the U.S.,
    And only 144 miles
    Of paved roads.

    The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.

    Alabama, Mississippi, Iowa, and Tennessee
    Were each more
    Heavily populated than California.

    With a mere 1.4 million people,
    California was only the 21st
    Most populous state in the Union.

    The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower !

    The average wage in the US. Was 22 cents per hour.

    The average U.S. Worker made between $200 and $400 per year .

    A competent accountant could expect to earn $2000 per year,
    A dentist $2,500 per year,
    A veterinarian between $1,500
    And $4,000 per year,
    And a mechanical engineer about $5,000 per year.

    More than 95 percent of all births in the U.S. Took place at HOME.

    Ninety percent of all U.S. Doctors had NO COLLEGE EDUCATION !
    Instead, they attended so-called medical schools,
    Many of which were condemned in the press
    The government
    As "sub-standard."

    Sugar cost four cents a pound.

    Eggs were fourteen cents a dozen.

    Coffee was fifteen cents a pound.

    Most women only washed their hair
    Once a month,
    And used borax
    Or egg yolks for shampoo. (EE-EWW)

    Canada passed a law that prohibited poor people from
    Entering into their country for any reason.

    The Five leading causes of death in the U.S. Were:
    1. Pneumonia and influenza
    2. Tuberculosis
    3. Diarrhea
    4. Heart disease
    5. Stroke

    The American flag had 45 stars.
    Arizona , Oklahoma, New Mexico, Hawaii, and
    Alaska hadn't been admitted to the Union yet

    The population of Las Vegas, Nevada, was only 30 !!!!

    Crossword puzzles,
    Canned beer,
    And ice tea
    Hadn't been invented yet.

    There was no Mother's Day
    Or Father's Day.

    Two out of every 10 U.S. Adults couldn't read or write.
    Only 6 percent of all Americans had graduated from high school.

    Marijuana, heroin, and morphine
    Were all available over
    The counter
    At the local corner drugstores.
    Pharmacists said,
    "Heroin clears the complexion, > gives buoyancy to the mind,
    Regulates the stomach and bowels,
    And is, in fact,
    A perfect guardian of health."
    ( Shocking ? )

    Eighteen percent of households in the U.S.
    Had at least one full-time servant or domestic help.

    There were about 230 reported murders
    In the ENTIRE U.S.A. !

    Now I forwarded this from someone else
    Without typing it myself,
    And sent it to you and others
    All over the United States,
    Possibly the world,
    In a matter of seconds !

    Now having read this
    Try to imagine what it may be like
    In another 100 years.

    Троллей, как и тараканов, до конца извести нельзя. Избавься от одного, на его место всегда придёт новый; идиотов и социопатов очень много. Поэтому единственное верное средство от тролля - не вступая в перепалку "забанить".

    Но факты правда очень интересные. Даже страшно становиться представить что будет через 100, 200, 800 лет.

    Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.
