    NO, NO, NO. Radioactive hair was NEVER in fashion. However, female munitions-factory workers in WWI Britain would use TNT to bleach their hair a bright golden yellow-blonde. Just working in the factory turned their skin golden yellow too.

    And early hair dyes (and modern ones) contained Paraphenylenediamine (PPD), which causes severe allergic reactions, and can cause blindness if it gets in the eyes. Hence the warnings on dye packages not to use it on the eyebrows or eyelashes. Several women in the early 1930s were blinded, and one was killed, by Lash Lure, an eyelash dye that was almost pure PPD.

    Your older stuff is fantastic too?
    You were made for this 😉

    I remember there was once a rumor going around that Cher had some ribs removed. She pointed out that if she did that, she wouldn’t be able to wear the revealing outfits she did because it would show the scarring.

  11. Unknown Chan on February 11, 2022 at 10:29 pm

    2021 anyone

  12. Don Cheeto on February 11, 2022 at 10:31 pm

    The things people do just to look pretty. Just keep your body clean and healthy and you will look fine…

  13. Leigh Irvine on February 11, 2022 at 10:32 pm

    Great Video, very informative

  14. Patte on February 11, 2022 at 10:32 pm

    The "worst operation ever" is a complete lie, spread by opponents of corsetry. There is no evidence whatsoever of even one rib-removal surgery ever having been performed anywhere in the world.

  15. EFIL WV on February 11, 2022 at 10:32 pm

    Humans are a stupid species of animal.

  16. Aditi qrstuvwxyz on February 11, 2022 at 10:33 pm

    Do these people actually want to make themselves attractive just to die from it

    A silent movie actress, Martha Mansfield, was playing a character in "The Warrens of Virginia" and was wearing a Civil War-era costume with a hoop skirt. Somehow, her gown caught fire. Although people were able to put out the fire right away, she suffered severe burns that took her life the following day on November 30, 1923. She was 24 years old. There’s still a lot of controversy over how the dress caught fire.

    Where is the volume without headsets? Why do you waste my time?

  19. Kathy Florcruz on February 11, 2022 at 10:38 pm

    Your details leave a lot to be desired. 100s of years of rib removal?? BS.

  20. Charlie Handsome on February 11, 2022 at 10:39 pm

    Lmao massive ass

  21. Goodiesfanful on February 11, 2022 at 10:40 pm

    There were other forms of footbinding, depending on the region, which were less extreme and deforming than the one shown. Another alternative was to wear platform shoes that mimicked the lotus foot walk without the lotus feet.

  22. Donna Braham Worsley on February 11, 2022 at 10:40 pm

    Basicly SNAP THE FOOT OFF is basicly the goal of it

    I’ve wore a crinoline and I still don’t know how they say down wearing what’s basically a metal cage

  25. eve on February 11, 2022 at 10:45 pm

    Actually, hardly anybody tight laced their corsets as it was seen as shallow and even less women would remove ribs ( there’s actually hardly any evidence suggesting this practice!) so I would say that the food binding should DEFINITELY be the most dangerous as it effected so many more women than tightly laced corsets

  26. Stephany Reynolds on February 11, 2022 at 10:46 pm

    Everything was so serious intill 4:05 🤣

  27. Miss Alexandra Desiré on February 11, 2022 at 10:47 pm

    #1 is noting more then a ‘urban legend’.
    As far as I am aware there are only 2 recorded instances where people have had their ribs surgically removed for aesthetics reasons and these two were very recent. Most surgeons will outright refuse to do this type of surgery because it poses a danger of collapsing a lung. The two lower ribs are extremely close to the lungs.
    Consider this also, surgery in the past has always been very dangerous and always without anesthesia or painkillers (no, I do not count laughing gas or strong alcohol.) Doctors did not practice hygiene (like cleaning tools or washing hands). Oh and no blood transfusion, or at least not regulated on blood type.
    So even if a woman would soldier through the horror of this type of surgery, wake, hellish pain, trauma of someone cutting into you and breaking your ribs to remove them, did not loose to much blood and had a doctor who practiced hygiene like it is done nowadays. She would probably die of infection anyway because she would have no antibiotics.

    So believing this last point is pretty unrealistic. Honestly, I cant believe the author of this video put it in there without thinking this claim is pretty dumb.

    Just so you know Eskify. Someone wrote an article and used your text of this video almost one to one.

    For today it would be being underweight.

  31. purppldead on February 11, 2022 at 10:52 pm

    Massive arse

  32. Anselma Reich on February 11, 2022 at 10:53 pm

    There also were corsets available for men. Yes, there were periods, especially in the early to mid 19th century, when it was desirable for men to have a small waist as well. I’m not even joking.

  33. Patte on February 11, 2022 at 10:53 pm

    Lest we get too cocky about foot-binding being only a "foreign" practice, fashionable women in the 19th century bound their feet in tight cloth bandages, in order to squeeze them into tight-fitting shoes and boots, in as small a size as possible. Modern ballet slippers are a holdover from early 19th century shoes. Pointe shoes had their origins in the flat shoes of the early 19th century. Ballerinas tried to outdo each other, rising higher and higher on their toes, until they were actually dancing on the tips of their toes, with their feet tightly bandaged inside their soft ballet slippers. The hard-toed pointe shoe was invented in response to this.

  34. Lemon Sky on February 11, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    This is the first I’ve ever heard of radioactive hair. Bizarre. Also, I read an article about the plight of young fashion models having to keep super thin. Some of them actually have teeth pulled to make their faces thinner. I wouldn’t be surprised if ribs were removed, too.

  35. Rainbowhugs on February 11, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    3:11 did he say Nigerian women???

  36. Claudia Arnold on February 11, 2022 at 10:54 pm

    The last one is just not true, Victorian surgery was just not up to it. And before the Advent of anesthesia it was totally unthinkable.

  37. SirParcifal on February 11, 2022 at 10:56 pm

    women who wore corsets would die often in child birth – also there was a lot of lead in cosmetics… I’ve been using less and less cosmetics and not surprisingly, my skin is getting better just with a moisturizer that has spf in it!

    The only good beauty product today or ever is nothing.

  39. Natalia Skoczeń on February 11, 2022 at 11:02 pm

    The story about rib removal is inaccurate. This is a modern day trend and in history people rather use a photomanipulation proceses than a rib removal surgery that first case of is known on late XX century . Lucys Corsetry makes very good film about it. Corsets used more earlier than XIX century and was not for waist reduction but for spine and bust support and for achieving apropriate stilhuette. So thight lacing wasn’t as popular and a form of pre victorian corsets does not allow this procces because they were still boned . often wooden or whale so it wasn’t flexible.

  40. Mamma Bear Channel on February 11, 2022 at 11:03 pm

    That’s messed up.. people need their feet to walk or run.. they shouldn’t be doing that to somebody or anybody….

  41. A cup of bangtan on February 11, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    OMG foot binding is so-

  42. Jim Brewer on February 11, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    That "high collar" for men also would compress the carotid arteries resulting in loss of consciousness at first but within 4 – 6 minutes would cause irreversible brain damage and ultimately death, all while they’re still able to breathe normally. This is also a combat and law enforcement maneuver or hold called a "sleeper" hold which would cause unconsciousness or semi – consciousness in a matter of seconds allowing someone to gain control of an adversary or suspect. It’s taught in hand to hand combat, police academies and some personal defense classes.

  43. Patte on February 11, 2022 at 11:04 pm

    Arsenical green wasn’t just in clothing. It was used in paint, paper, wallpaper, carpet, curtains, and even as food colouring. And arsenical dyes weren’t just green. I have a book of samples of arsenical wallpapers and fabrics from the 1880s, and the one with the highest content is a piece of vivid magenta fabric.

    I saw the thumbnail and knew instantly "Footbinding in china" and was like sure let’s watch it

    This video made me so uncomfortable

  48. may on February 11, 2022 at 11:09 pm

    huh, I never knew I was going to be grateful of when I was born.

  49. Elemental Steve on February 11, 2022 at 11:09 pm

    I don’t want to do that

  50. [WUT] Hi hiii was here on February 11, 2022 at 11:10 pm

    Y’all believe corsets are actually deadly women exercised in them and guess who made the story that their deadly…. Men , the people who never wore them

    I can’t explain it all in a comment but here it’s a better explanation https://youtu.be/ZhN0XOyHO5g
