Back in the day, I guess there wasn’t a whole lot to do for fun. Or at least there wasn’t a whole lot that could safely be done – theme parks weren’t a thing, the Internet and television weren’t even a glint in anyone’s imagination, and travel was basically limited to where you could drive (or, if you were rich, go on a boat that would probably sink and kill you).
What followed was that our ancestors likely took some pretty dangerous holidays – perhaps without even realizing how people a couple hundred years in the future would see things differently. I’m sure it also has something to do with the fact that we have a lot more rules, regulations, and government branches designated to making sure the human population doesn’t dwindle to zero due to pure stupidity.
It’s a big job, to be sure.
But before all of this beautiful mess we’ve created, our people had to wing it. And wing it, they did.
