The Filth of Victorian Luxembourg – Roblox 1867


oh! can you smell that! disgusting! I’m on
the street of the tanners here in 1867 Luxembourg I’m in the low spec version
at the moment that street stinks because of the urine used to treat the leather
but it stinks all over the place oh! here I can smell excrement floating in the
river and on streets there will be horse poo dog poo dead dogs dead bodies of all
sorts and worse that I dare not mention so if you are squeamish please turn off
this is gonna be one horrible video in 1867 Luxembourg the city
stunk there was poo dead bodies urine and all sorts of disgusting things around
the city in fact in London in 1894 The Times
newspaper reported ‘The Great Horse Manure Crisis’ in which it said … in 50 years time
London will be underneath 9 feet of horse manure 9 feet! can you believe that? no way! I can’t believe that! that’s what it said but,
there again, there were 50,000 horses in London and that’s not all in other
cities they were even more New York had a hundred thousand-plus
horses more than a hundred thousand horses
every day just think all that mess 35 pounds of horse manure for every horse
two pints of urine for every horse every day now remember a horse has got a
working life of three years and after three years many would just pass out due
to sheer exhaustion oh! isn’t that sad there’s a dead horse here!
but horses are big things you can’t just pick them up and carry them off you’d
have to leave them there for several weeks you’d leave the corpse (in
Victorian times) on the street for several weeks so that the corpse would
fester and after a few weeks the meat would become soft and easy to cut up oh a thunder storm! hey, that’s better so
you’d often find a dead corpse of a horse on the streets just waiting for a few
months until it festered and rotted away so it was easier to cut up and then they’d used the
hooves for glue the mane for brushes the meat and bones for fertilizer or boiled up
and used as glue but (just imagine) in those few weeks there’d be rats all
over the place that would explain why there’s cats here ’cause householders would
keep cats to keep the rats away ah, isn’t it sweet! if you want to, you can
coax the cats look how my cursor changes into a hand cursor here kitty kitty kitty
oh you sweet thing! and if you click on the cat I’m going to ‘click’ oh look at
that! I’ve got the ‘cat coaxing’ badge
so when you see a cat on the street just stop and give it a coax but I’ve got work
to do I can’t spend all day coaxing cats so
goodbye YouTube just be thankful you can’t smell the city as well as see it
otherwise I don’t think you’d be here for long …
poo! can you smell that!
