In the late 1700’s they thought that drinking all day, every day, was a good health practice. Of course on average, they also died in their 40’s and 50’s.

You could openly hang out in the town square and purchase people’s votes with booze.
Dueling was still considered an acceptable way to settle a dispute.

You see, we figured we had all learned some shit over the last couple of centuries.

Well, now that kid has a deadly weapon.
