So I was watching The Mummy movies, and it made made me think about how much better the world was back then (late 19th/early 20th century). Think about it. Most areas outside of the west were not industrialised, over populated shitholes. Planes weren't widely available. Technology was limited. Empires still existed. The world was full of mystery, intrigue, and adventure. You could explore exotic lands and locales and boast about discovering old ruins and artefacts from long lost civilisations. You would be treated with respect and reverence from locals. God, I was born in the wrong time. Pulpy adventure media is an escape for me.
