Is That What We Said, Strange Are We Still Saying It?

The fast food restaurant is convenient for a quick meal, but I seriously doubt they will ever catch on.

 

When I started driving my first car, who would have thought gas would someday cost 25 cents a gallon.

Guess we’d be better off leaving the car in the garage, if it gets any worse.

Oh I am only kidding the government will never do that to us they know we need to get by with our cars,

 I suppose 25 cents a gallon is only a temporary measure.

 

 

If they raise the minimum wage to $1.00,
nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store anymore and we would have to wait forever to be helped.
Thank goodness that will never happen

 

I’m afraid to send my kids to the movies any more. Ever since they let Clark Gable get by with saying DAMN in GONE WITH THE WIND, it seems every new movie has either HELL or DAMN in it, we just cannot tell what will be next. Heaven forbid if they start using the Lords name as a curse word. But then I am sure that will never happen.

 
Welcome to 2012 things sure have changed a lot since these statements were made,or have they ?

Here Are Some Statistics For The Year 1911

Here are some statistics for the Year 1911

One hundred years ago. What a difference a century makes!

The average life expectancy for men was 47 years.

Fuel for this car was sold in drug stores only.

Only 14 percent of the homes had a bathtub.

Only 8 percent of the homes had a telephone.

There were only 8,000 cars and only 144 miles of paved roads.

The maximum speed limit in most cities was 10 mph.

The tallest structure in the world was the EiffelTower !

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 disease
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 the local corner drugstores.
Back then 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!”

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!

Try to imagine what it may be like in another 100 years.
