As we all know, everyone thinks that the thought of a life hack is just some new thing created by folks on the internet. But this Reddit post you’re about to see, will put you in awe about how people have been thinking of clever ways to create easy solutions for over a hundred years.
If we go back a century from now, we would probably be able to find life hacks from yesteryears in the cards that are included in cigarette packs.
Yes, that’s true! Before Google, smartphones and bald Russian Guys came, cigarette manufacturers have provided our great-great grandparents with clever solutions to everyday problems.
According to Mental Floss, Gallaher cigarettes printed a series of clever “How-To” cards in 1910 to help them from several emergency situations. But really they were just placed there to strengthen the containers that hold the cigarette packs.
Surprisingly, some of these hacks will probably still work today. Take for example, how to stop a mad dog… or how to rescue someone from electric shock. These are absolutely pretty interesting stuff.
