This List of Facts About America From 1915 Are Pretty Mind Blowing

  • Someone posted this on Imgur and it’s totally blown up on social media:1915
  • The most interesting ones to me:
    • The average life expectancy for men was 47 years (my time would be up in a few months)
    • More than 95% of all births took place at home (all anti-vaxxers, I would guess, too)
    • Most women only washed their hair once a month (now that’s only in Venice, CA)
    • 2 out of every 10 adults could not read or write
    • Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were all available over the counter at local drugstores

One thing they did not mention – the federal debt’s percentage of the country’s GDP was a fraction of what it is today:usgs_line.php
