20 Ways People Used To Have Fun

Quick! Name all your favorite activities. 

I'm going to go out a limb here and guess that most of them take place indoors. I'm not judging you. I get it. I just bring it up because it seems like that's where we used to have a 90-10 split between outdoor fun and indoor fun and now the opposite is true. 

If you're wondering how such a thing was possible, take a look.
