    I'm a casual Redditor, and I saw this one post today that looked really interesting and automatically I was like, "I wonder what the guys on RJ would come up with!". Basically, imagine that Youtube was available in 1912, what kind of videos do you think would be on it?

    I could see a video along the lines of "How to properly lace your corset" actually, I could see that being a huge hit with millions of views icon_smile.gif

    It makes you think how important cultural events like women's suffrage movement and prohibition would have transpired in a communication/technology revolution.

    There would have been discussion about the election.. the perceived disappointment in William Howard Taft by Theodore Roosevelt, the Bull Moose Party and those of us who would be all over it with Woodrow Wilson for President.

    No doubt Taft would have some challenging videos posted. It would be intriguing!
