Absurd etiquette rules from the '30s, '40s, and '50s

Dating in the modern age is a minefield, especially in the digital era with apps, texting, and entirely new codes of technological behavior in the mix. There are a lot of things to think about—you have to pick the right platforms, figure out how to properly construct your profile to attract the right kind of people, and not fall for any false advertisements. You also have to navigate texting (how soon is too soon to reply?), cope with the inevitability of being ghosted, and deal with a lot of things that are separate from actually meeting someone. Because of all these new complications, we seem to have a romanticized idea of dating in the past. In our collective imagination, romance "back then" was filled with meet-cutes, chivalry was alive and well, and there was an added air of mystery because you couldn't stalk a person's entire digital history online. Plus, you could lie about your age! But in all seriousness, dating in the 21st century is nothing compared to the strict social codes permeating the first half of the 20th century. Magazine columns and entire books were dedicated to teaching young folks the proper etiquette when it came to courting and being courted. While very detailed and highly regarded at the time, those guides have not aged well in the least. From shockingly sexist gender roles to hilariously ridiculous things that were considered in "bad taste," nearly every single one of these rules should be broken in today's age. You may be surprised at how far we've come since the 1930s, '40s, and even '50s, though it's equally surprising just how many people relied upon these guides to determine another person's character. Check out this gallery to see the most bizarre etiquette rules from not-long-ago-enough, and revel in the dating freedom we have today.

Interesting facts about immunization

The practice of immunization dates back hundreds of years, and it's undeniable that it saves lives. Getting yourself vaccinated is the best way to protect yourself and the people around you.

However, deadly diseases that are prevented with a simple vaccine are coming back. And this is mainly because of individuals who are against vaccination.

When World War II visited North America

When talking about enemy attacks on US soil during the Second World War, most people refer to the bombing of Pearl Harbor. But in fact this infamous military strike by the Imperial Japanese Navy took place before the United States had entered the conflict. The unprovoked act of aggression ultimately led to America declaring war on Japan. But even before those dark events of December 7, 1941, the country was being infiltrated by German spies. Bombardments and incursions by Axis forces on and into North American territory followed. But few people are able to recall these small-scale campaigns that saw the enemy directly target the nation and in some cases actually operate within American and Canadian borders. So, what are these little-known encounters, and when did they take place? Click through and discover all about when World War II visited North America.

Most wanted! Notorious outlaws of the Old West

The American Frontier of the second half of the 19th century and the early 20th century is a period sometimes referred to as the Old West. An era often characterized by violence as much as for romance and folklore, it’s also known as the Wild West for the numerous outlaws that took to the saddle to raid banks, rob trains, and hold up stagecoaches. Some of these gunfighters achieved an iconic, almost legendary status. Nearly all, however, were ruthless and brutal and truly deserved their reputations as dangerous gunfighters. Click through the rogue’s gallery of bandits, villains, fugitives, gunslingers, and desperados, and draw on some of the most wanted outlaws in the Wild West.
