Year 1915

Thanks to Connie P.

This will boggle your mind!
The year is 1915 “One hundred years ago .
l schools, many of which
were condemned in the press
 AND the government as "substandard."
What a difference a century makes!

Here are some statistics for the Year 1915:
The average life expectancy for men was 47 years.
Fuel for cars was sold in drug stores only.
Only 14 percent of the homes had a bathtub.
Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone.
The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.
The tallest structure in the world was the Eiffel Tower.
The average US wage in 1910 was 22 cents per hour.
The average US 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 took place at home
Ninety percent of all Doctors had NO COLLEGE EDUCATION!
Instead, they attended so-called medical schools, many of which
were condemned in the press AND the government as "substandard."
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.
Canada passed a law that prohibited poor people from entering into their country for any reason.
The Five leading causes of death were:
1.  Pneumonia and influenza
2. Tuberculosis
3. Diarrhea
4. Heart
5. Stroke
The American flag had 45 stars ...  

The population of Las Vegas, Nevada was only 30.
Crossword puzzles, canned beer, and iced tea hadn't been invented yet.   
There was neither a Mother's Day nor a Father's Day.
Two out of every 10 adults couldn't read or write
And, only 6 percent of all Americans had graduated from high school.
Marijuana, heroin, and morphine were all available over the counter at local corner drugstores.
Back then pharmacists said, "Heroin clears the complexion,
gives buoyancy to the mind, regulates the stomach, bowels, and is, in fact, a
perfect guardian of health!"  (Shocking?)
Eighteen percent of households had at least one full-time servant or domestic help..
There were about 230 reported™ murders in the ENTIRE U.S.A. !
I am now going to forward this to someone else without typing it myself.
From there, it will be sent to others all over the WORLD all in a matter of seconds!   
It is impossible to imagine what it may be like in another 100 years

Water Bombing Fires

Thanks to David H.

The view from the cockpit!  What a lesson in coordination!  Four hands, four feet, and six eyes - all working as one!  Bombardier Aerospace Montreal made these aircraft. They don't "motor around" to fill the tanks---they touch down at approach speed, open the fill scoops, add lots of power and the tanks fill in seconds.  There's one scene in the film where you can see the two tank level gauges rapidly go up.  The other neat thing is watching the magnitude of the flight control inputs, especially aileron, as they are maneuvering down low---sometimes the pilot is literally going stop to stop.
