    4. During the Victorian era, women would use ARSENIC to clear up their skin.

    5. Corsets were laced so tight they sometimes cut a woman's stomach in half.

    6. Crinolines caused women to constantly fall over and occasionally set themselves on fire.

    7. Men would sometimes choke to death on their detachable collars.
