OLDEST PAIR OF PANTS EVER FOUND: 3300 YEARS OLD!

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

I’m obsessed with ancient civilizations. Especially with Atlantis. I can’t get enough documentaries about all of the physical evidence they’ve left behind, of their advanced technology. They were way more advanced than we are today. They also had very modern clothing. The myth of ancient man wearing animal skins in a cave has gone the way of Columbus discovered America.

This ancient pair of pants, below, are in remarkable condition considering they’re thousands of years old! Found in an ancient graveyard in western China. They are the oldest pair of pants ever found, reports Science News.  With straight-fitting legs and a wide crotch, the ancient wool trousers resemble modern riding pants, says a team led by archaeologists Ulrike Beck and Mayke Wagner of the German Archaeological Institute in Berlin. The discoveries, uncovered in the Yanghai graveyard in China’s Tarim Basin, support previous work suggesting that nomadic herders in Central Asia invented pants to provide bodily protection and freedom of movement for horseback journeys and mounted warfare.

NEW LAW: VINTAGE & ANTIQUE SELLERS CAN’T USE CASH!!!

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

Yep, it’s true! Big brother is here.  The state of Louisiana has passed a law that forbids people who sell vintage , 2nd hand, & antique items from using cash when buying or selling. Even garage sales have to use a credit card or debit card. I doubt anyone will follow this law since it’s so stupid. I hope no other states follow suit. Maybe the ACLU will help take it down. We can only hope!
