Sweep the nomads into the gutter, and they'll crawl into the quacks.


Yes, I know, stupid lame pun.

Gimme a break, I woke up hungover, and STILL drunk.

I don't know about that. Back in the day when photographs were still very uncommon people wouldn't get their pictures taken until after they were dead. When you died, they'd dress you and sit you up and open your eyes and put you in some life situation and take a picture of you.

For the fearful/squeamish, this site features Victorian post-mortem photography. The vast majority are children, dead from things that vaccines have pretty much wiped out and--

oh wait.

Well. You might want to direct the anti-vaxxers you know on over. Not that it'll sink in to all of them, but it might just make an impact.

There's got to be at least 5 or 6 dudes in drag in that photo. I mean, c'mon, I'll eat my hat if Pointy McFinger there isn't some middle-aged man playing Victorian dress-up time.

Hey, these types have transcended mere politics. They really have made it a cultural way of life to shun rational thought, despise science, and embrace a brutal, caveman-like attitude towards everything.

They aren't just sh*theaded. They're MILITANTLY sh*theaded!

Up here high five. 100% right. Wasn't that some of the most stunningly dipshiated idiocy you've ever read on Fark?

I'm already confused. Are you talking about a Tea Partier, which has nothing to do with this thread at all, or the dumbshiat Liberal that insists his herpaderp be dragged into the most mundane of topics?

I dunno... it's what I was thinking too. This portrays the lives of "ordinary people" in a world where the rich did as they pleased, the state mandated religion, and the social safety net was rudimentary and usually punitive of its recipients. In other words, right-wing heaven.

Ironic it would seem that they're at the opposite end of the spectrum now, in Liberal heaven...7 cameras on you at every second of the day. Handing over half your pay to the government that knows what's good for you. Stories every day of people not wanting to actually work or contribute to society because why bother when you can just get your gov'mint check that others so generously donated to?

I'm sure there's a happy medium in there somewhere though, right?

If any of your ancestors were English, GIS "Proceedings of the Old Bailey" which was the Central London Court from the 1600's through the 1950's. The court dealt with these people with hanging, flogging, imprisonment and forced transportation to Australia and it is all remarkably preserved with original documents and printed translations. Search by surname and if any of your predecessors were arrested or charged, they will be in there.
