The Internet Is Going Wild For This 1865 Dating Profile

Dating is a disaster now but imagine what it would be like in 1860's... Well Max Roser, a researcher at the University of Oxford, found out when he discovered this personal ad from the 1860's. 

First of all, this guy sounds like a real down-to-earth dude. His teeth are straight and his potatoes are bully. I don't know what else a girl could be looking for. 

I truly hope he found someone up in Maine those years ago. And ladies, the next time you're on Tinder, think about this fellow when judging your potential suitors. 


The cannabis industry has a packaging problem. In fact, more broadly speaking, it has a sustainability problem. Regulations in legal states, aiming to childproof cannabis products, have had the side effect of creating massive waste, while cultivation can be energy and water intensive.

Can we see some ID please?
