Remember when you first heard from somebody, probably one of your parents, say, “It’s a hard, cold cruel world out there?”

As most of you know, they were right…

 

“We practice fiscal cruelty and call it an economy. We practice legal cruelty and call it justice. We practice environmental cruelty and call it opportunity. We practice vicarious cruelty and call it entertainment. We practice rhetorical cruelty and call it debate.” David Granger/Charles Pierce, Esquire http://www.esquire.com/blogs/politics/Cruelty_In_Excelsis

WHY A TOILET IS SOMETIMES CALLED A JOHN

Sir John Harrington lived in the late 16th and early 17th centuries.

The device worked by pulling a cord that would allow water to rush in from the “water closet”, which would flush away the waste. Why European toilets still use “cords” today…

PILGRAMS DIDN’T WEAR JUST BLACK AND WHITE CLOTHING

 

Their common garb was very colorful, as was the fashion at the time. They only wore predominately black and gray clothing on Sundays. The rest of the time, they wore heavily dyed clothing in many different colors; basically all the colors that could be achieved with natural dyes. For one example, a Pilgrim by the name of Brewster left his clothing in his will to someone, which was described as such: “one blew clothe suit, green drawers, a vilolete clothe coat, black silk stockings, skyblew garters, red grograin suit, red waistcoat, tawny colored suit with silver buttons.”
