If you think the past is boring, remember that the study of history isn't all names, dates, and wars. Sometimes it's also a large dildo dropped in a toilet.

Archeologists in Gdańsk, Poland were digging up a latrine recently when they discovered a well-preserved dildo in the shitter. It's made of bristle-filled leather and capped with a wooden tip. The dildo is also eight inches long, big enough to make most men say, "I never thought I'd be jealous of something found in an 18th century toilet." The archeologists believe the dildo was dropped in the latrine by accident, because the leather is high-quality and the dildo was likely very expensive.
