If you were born 100 years earlier what would you do for a living, hobbies, etc? Keep in mind that for the most part that would mean most of us here were born in the 1880's and 1890's. No cars, no computers, no technology really as we know it at all. The lightbulb was literally just being invented. As for me, I think I would be a blacksmith. I like making things and I think that is one of the few things that I would enjoy. I'm not even sure of all the jobs that one could have back then. Being a scientist would also be very interesting and maybe helping create things such as the lightbulb and other things that have evolved into very important technologies for life today. As for hobbies I don't really know. I would probably go hiking and exploring a lot and play games like chess and card games. (The Joker was first added to the playing card deck in 1870 in fact. Bicycle playing cards first appeared in 1887. Random tidbits of knowledge there.) So, what would you do if you were born 100 years earlier?
