Ah yes...... 1904. The year that silk was cheaper than cardboard.

Presumably they were shipped in wooden boxes and not in cardboard ones. The first time cardboard was used for commercial products storage was for Kellog's cereals, which wasn't even founded until 1906.

This!
And before you wonder: "But hey! Wood might still be cheaper than silk!" Consider the worktine: The boxes had to be build. and I'd say a tailor could make 3-5 times more bags than the carpenter could make boxes that would have the perfect conditions for tea.

So what you're saying is that wood, a material that literally grows on trees, would be more expensive than the most expensive fabric available? According to a 5 second google search it takes a hundred man hours to produce enough silk for a single blouse. Now, I'm no carpenter, but I bet I could build a small box in an hour.

And, following the trend, I am fun at parties. But this isn't a party.

Fun fact- fact 2 (sniper guy) was using a rifle that only zeroes in to about 1.1km not 2.5km so he would have had to adjust his sights so that they were far above the person he was aiming at. That is absolutely amazing.

Actually they did not have such a vote. The source of the myth comes from a proposal before congress to print laws in German and English....there was never such a vote to make German the official language of the United States.

I'm going to tell you about their test..... they make you grab two bars and they ask you probing questions, questions of the personal nature meant to cause emotional reactions like gripping the bars tighter.

While they ask you these questions they increase the sensitivity of the grip machine at their own discretion, this causes a "jump" in the readings which supposedly is an emotional response.

A neat little trick here to play is that when their hand (slowly) moves the sensitivity dial, you gradually loosen your grip on the bars to keep them from getting these readings. :/
