10 truly bizarre Victorian deaths

Recommended Posts

reminds me of other things you pick up over the years from the same time where they simply didn't know any better.

 

like the face powder they used had lead and arsenic in it with predictable results.

the tin cans of food were sealed with lead solder causing poisoning.

and the famous Madame Marie Curie working hands-on (literally) with radio-active elements.

Although they were more ignorant their hospitals did not spread MSRA.

 

I believe they had elegance and Brass handles on operating theatre doors,

and I recently read that Copper/Brass has sterile/antiseptic properties which are absent from Chrome/Stainless Steel.

 

Join the dots :rolleyes:

Number 6 seems pretty gruesome - the only thing worse than being clawed to death by a bunch of cats would be getting eaten alive by a bunch of cats. :unsure:

Who wouldn't want to get drunk with a bear?

 

Aside from the fact they have huge claws, sharp teeth, and smell like a fish cannery, I'd have no problem at all. :lol:
