There has been research into this. Class mobility has never been as great as we like to believe in the US (we mainly hear about the exceptions), but it has been diminishing over time.

I can see why the 1596 toilet was rejected by the general public. You'd have to haul water in and haul water out along with the waste. That's fine if you're the queen and have plenty of servants, but not so great for the rest of us. Modern plumbing is a blessing.

LOL someone has enough money to open more than one savings account!

But you're right about banks not being ready for millennials. My kid has had all kinds of problems with banks. She is 19, has some funds, a job, great grades, and plenty of documentation, but she's still treated like she can't be trusted with her own money.

People only look up words when they care about getting them right, and almost all these words are difficult to remember. I looked up "boutineer" last week (spellcheck doesn't know the word, Wikipedia gave me boutonnière).

But "gray"? I think that may be just people arguing about "gray" vs. "grey." The 50 Shades book did not help there.

Great idea. Now, when people consider a tattoo, they have to weigh the price and pain involved with the outcome. It sounds like the price will be in line with a one-year tat. But will the pain (and possible infection) involved be worth it?

When my brother was in college, some guys in the dorm threw chunks of sodium in the toilet because the toilet would just throw them back. Until one of these geniuses got the great idea to flush one, and shards of porcelain went everywhere.

While other government agencies sit around and talk about ideas to improve peoples' lives, then spend years designing a pilot program that ends up being too complicated to understand and difficult to use, the local library just up and does it.
