Bullshit Ideas of Yesteryear

For those of us who enjoy looking at old ads, there is a limitless supply at Google Books. Get rich quick schemes, cigarettes, cars, food, underwear, leg warmers, bomb shelters, it's all there. Just pick a year and a magazine title and peruse your workday away.

I found this column of lies in a vintage Popular Science classified section, just after the full-page ad of the guy leaning on his Rolls Royce, promising to help you make $100,000 in 90 days.
