26 Things That Existed Way Before You Think

We have a lot be thankful for. The digital age has given us the power to transmit information at nearly light speed. The creature comforts afforded to us by the invention of things like air conditioners, washing machines, and dishwashers give us more time in the day that would otherwise have been lost. The internet gives us access to daily doses of dank memes and fun pics. Indeed, next time you're not gathering your ash to mix with pig's fat to make yourself some soap or trying to get upstream of the battlefield to wash your clothes, be thankful for life's modern pleasures.

That said, you'd be surprised just how much you'd get to keep even if you went a few centuries back -- from roman slave-powered social media to 4000-year-old flushing toilets, there's a lot of things around us that are a lot older than you think.
