I retoned a 1882 ad for Lydia Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound and was about to post it… then realized that the exact same ad was already in use as an illustration on her Wikipedia page.
Well, never mind then. Still, the best cure for cramps that 1882 had to offer is still worth a look-see.

And that boys and girls is why you are supposed to wear a helmet.
THIS. ALL THE TIME THIS. I see so many motorcyclists not wearing helmets these days and I get so scared for them! Please wear a helmet all the time! On your motorcycle? Helmet. On your bike? Helmet. Skateboard? Helmet. First day of High School? Helmet. Last day of High School? Helmet. Going for a leisurely stroll? MOTHERFUCKING HELMET.
I had a client ask me to make him a Jayne hat to wear on his bike on his commute. Only hat I ever turned down. I begged him to please wear a helmet instead. I know it wasn’t my business and I sounded like an overprotective mother, but my husband had just taken a tumble on his bike that landed him in the ER. Thank goodness he always wears his helmet. I couldn’t in good conscience take this Browncoat’s money knowing that my hat might be the thing keeping him from riding around helmetless.
I never heard back, which isn’t surprising. But I still think about him sometimes and hope he’s safe.
