Hard to believe kids drew all these incredible pictures and there's not a boob to be seen.

Contractors at Emerson High School in Oklahoma City were removing chalkboards to replace with whiteboards only to find another layer of chalkboards underneath`that had been untouched since 1917. They're very cool and creepy as hell, because the people who drew them are all dead now. But they sure knew how to draw a turkey!

Apparently every board has a lesson on Pilgrims, so elementary school hasn't changed much in 100 years. The district is working to preserve this rad discovery, saying, "This is so cool!" Not really, but that's what they should say. Or they could say, "Time grinds us all to dust, dressing children up in construction paper Pilgrim hats is eternal."

Actually the principal, Sherry Kishore, says she wonders if the drawings are by kids serving some form of prehistoric detention:

“Their names are here; I don't know whether they were students in charge that day that got to do the special chores if they were the ones that had a little extra to do because they were acting up... But it's all kinds of different feelings when you look at this.”

After feeling a sense of my own mortality, I mostly feel a little sad that no one knows how to write in cursive anymore, which will make it hard for future generations to read the Declaration of Independence when we're all iHumans.

Makes our version of the Pledge of Allegiance seem very casual in comparison.
