Interesting History Facts

Post  Horizon on Mon Oct 29, 2012 5:11 pm

Just thought I would share a little History with my Friends! We can never know too much!!

Where did tick Poor come from?



Interesting History


They used to use urine to tan animal skins, so families
used to all pee in a pot & then once a day it was taken &
Sold to the tannery.......if you had to do this to survive
you were "tick Poor"

But worse than that were the really poor folk who couldn't
even afford to buy a pot.......they "didn't have a pot to
tick in" & were the lowest of the low

The next time you are washing your hands and complain
because the water temperature isn't just how you like it,
think about how things used to be. Here are some facts about
the 1500s:

Most people got married in June because they took their
yearly bath in May, and they still smelled pretty good by
June.. However, since they were starting to smell . ..... .
Brides carried a bouquet of flowers to hide the body odor.
Hence the custom today of carrying a bouquet when getting
Married.

Baths consisted of a big tub filled with hot water. The man
of the house had the privilege of the nice clean water, then
all the other sons and men, then the women and finally the
children. Last of all the babies. By then the water was so
dirty you could actually lose someone in it.. Hence the
saying, "Don't throw the baby out with the Bath water!"

Houses had thatched roofs-thick straw-piled high, with no
wood underneath. It was the only place for animals to get
warm, so all the cats and other small animals (mice, bugs)
lived in the roof. When it rained it became slippery and
sometimes the animals would slip and fall off the roof...
Hence the saying "It's raining cats and dogs.."

There was nothing to stop things from falling into the
house. This posed a real problem in the bedroom where bugs
and other droppings could mess up your nice clean bed. Hence,


a bed with big posts and a sheet hung over the top
afforded some protection. That's how canopy beds came into
existence.

The floor was dirt. Only the wealthy had something other
than dirt. Hence the saying, "Dirt poor." The wealthy had
slate floors that would get slippery in the winter when wet,
so they spread thresh (straw) on floor to help keep their
footing. As the winter wore on, they added more thresh until,


when you opened the door, it would all start slipping
outside. A piece of wood was placed in the entrance-way.
Hence: a thresh hold.

(Getting quite an education, aren't you?)

In those old days, they cooked in the kitchen with a big
kettle that always hung over the fire.. Every day they lit
the fire and added things to the pot. They ate mostly
vegetables and did not get much meat. They would eat the
stew for dinner, leaving leftovers in the pot to get cold
overnight and then start over the next day. Sometimes stew
had food in it that had been there for quite a while. Hence
the rhyme: Peas porridge hot, peas porridge cold, peas
porridge in the pot nine days old. Sometimes they could
obtain pork, which made them feel quite special. When
visitors came over, they would hang up their bacon to show
off. It was a sign of wealth that a man could, "bring home
the bacon." They would cut off a little to share with guests
and would all sit around and chew the fat.

Those with money had plates made of pewter. Food with high
acid content caused some of the lead to leach onto the food,
causing lead poisoning death. This happened most often with
tomatoes, so for the next 400 years or so, tomatoes were
considered poisonous.

Bread was divided according to status. Workers got the burnt
bottom of the loaf, the family got the middle, and guests
got the top, or the upper crust.

Lead cups were used to drink ale or whisky. The combination
would Sometimes knock the imbibers out for a couple of days.
Someone walking along the road would take them for dead and
prepare them for burial. They were laid out on the kitchen
table for a couple of days and the family would gather
around and eat and drink and wait and see if they would wake
up. Hence the custom of holding a wake.

England is old and small and the local folks started running
out of places to bury people. So they would dig up coffins
and would take the bones to a bone-house, and reuse the
grave. When reopening these coffins, 1 out of 25 coffins
were found to have scratch marks on the inside and they
realized they had been burying people alive.... So they would
tie a string on the wrist of the corpse, lead it through the
coffin and up through the ground and tie it to a bell.
Someone would have to sit out in the graveyard all night
(the graveyard shift.) to listen for the bell; thus, someone
could be saved by the bell or was considered a dead ringer.

And that's the truth....Now, whoever said History was boring!!!
Soooo....now don't you feel much smarter????

That really WAS interesting, horizon. But I'm wondering if you changed the term in the first paragraph? I'm betting the original phrase wasn't "tick poor", but something a little more graphic.

All very interesting indeed Horizon..... With reference to the above, just to expound a bit, "Tick poor" is also another more suitable term for "tick Poor" (Horizon is too nice to say it that way but, y'all know I'm not that nice).

Also, the real poor lived in either old delapidated buildings or mud huts and neither of them had windows (that was a luxury). So, as horizon pointed out about the real poor "didn't have a pot to tick in" well, the real real poor "didn't have a pot to tick in or a window to throw it out of"....

There ya have it........ The rest of the story:)

That's funny stuff right there Sebbie!! LaughingLaughing

So, if the DDD word processor turns shite in to "cabbage" and it turns Pi$$ into "tick", what happens if I try to say F I guess I better not try to spell it out, knowing my luck it would go thru and I would be banned for life!!

I wouldn't want to get "cabbaged and ticked" on....

Hey, Terbo, now that you mention it, as we are reflecting on those historical moments, I am suddenly reminded of what Grandpaw must have really been saying all those years ago when he used to tell my young brothers and I that he would be out to watch TV with us in a few minutes........ Right after he "Tucked" Grandmaw in for the night!!

Did he have a brother named ' Tucker'? Like the car they built back in '48- They called it a Tucker- The first few were built with no reverse gear, because bad engineering- When people realized this, people would bring it back to the shop to tell the dealer the car had no reverse gear- They said 'go see the guy that built it'- They did, and he told them,if you can't push it out of your garage, well then, 'Tucker'-Let 'er sit there!I say, I, I say, that's a joke, son! {Foghorn Leghorn}
