Useless Information #2


Chattanooga Aquarium Waterfall

Here’s the next installment of useless information that you might possibly be interested in, or not, whichever.

The next time you are washing your hands and complain because the water temperature isn’t just how you like it, think about how things used to be.

Interesting facts from the 1500’s:

Most people got married in June because they took their YEARLY bath in May.  They still smelled pretty good in June, however, since they were starting to smell Brides would carry a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor.

Thus began the tradition of carrying a bouquet when getting married.

Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water.  The man of the house took his bath first and had the privilege of nice clean water.  Next the other sons and men in the household, then the women and children and finally, the babies.  By then the water was so dirty, the babies could get lost in the water – which is where the saying “Don’t throw the baby out with the bath water.”

Sorry – that one was bad, but funny.  I highly doubt the validity on that last one.
