23 'Modern' Things That Are JUST. SO. OLD.

Cracked pays people to make smart memes. Visit the Photoplasty and Pictofacts Workshop to get in on it.

People like to think that modern trends are just that: modern. But surprisingly often, it turns out that a thing we assume is brand-new has been a thing for decades, or even centuries.

Since we hate being wrong about stuff, we asked our image magicians to dig up the true histories of things we think are modern. And we gave some old-fashioned cash to our favorite entries.
