Vintage Mag Offers Insight On The Husband-Hunting Tactics Of Yore

Dating has come a long way since the 1950's. We've been blessed by what sometimes feels like too much technology, and being able to scroll through hundreds of prospective suitors in just a few minutes. Singles back in the day really didn't have these luxuries. Meeting "the one" involved a lot more time, energy and though. Facebook user Kim Marx-Kuczynski shared proof of this in the form of a 1958 McCall's magazine. The classic women's magazine, which folded in 2002, covered topics such as news, fashion - and some seriously funny relationship advice. This piece, which is geared at helping women find a husband, shows a starkly different dating game than we're used to. And it's terrifically funny to boot.

57 Dank History Memes That Roast Pretty Much Everyone

We can say with a good deal of certainty that many horrific historic events are glossed over in textbooks, at least in the United States. This partial picture of the past can be pretty misleading at best, and honestly damaging at its worst. History memes, however, take part in very little of that rosy selective memory. Instead, they pretty much roast every damn empire, government, and war that has ever existed. And for that reason, they may be more educational than any of the expensive tomes they assign you in school. These memes make for some pretty great proof.
