Playing pool could also be much more exciting than it is today.

There were other dangers. Women, for example, apparently were at risk of having advertising copy tattooed on their decolletage. And of course, there was always the threat of encounters with Zulus, Pathans, Mahdists, and Sir Garnet Wolseley.

Too bad they (Victorians) didn't have reality TV. "Up next: WHEN TOILETS GO BAD". I'm sure a Geraldo Rivera type could be found to host.

No wonder they always looked so serious.
