OP, that's not a "fact."
And your statement is not only non-factual. It is false, both for anti-parasitical health and public health efforts in the early-to-mid 20th century, and for the prevalence of helminths and other human parasites today.
The true story of America's public health campaign to end the pandemic of hookworm in the US South is forgotten by most but represents an effort of amazing effectiveness, sensitivity and power. But even at that time the estimated prevalence of hookworm, the most serious parasite among all ages, was found to be about 40%. So shut up, you wormy turd.

The foolishness of people - scholars, actors and general dumbshits - who claim Shakespeare's works were written by someone else (Marlowe, Bacon, Oxford, the Man in the Moon) - ignore a particular metaphor in "The Rape of Lucrece." The image is that of water passing rapidly through an arch on a bridge, with things rushing through being driven back in the swirling current to appear again upstream of the bridge. This phenomenon still can be seen today at the old Clopton Bridge, extant from Shakespeare's time, where Shakespeare as a youth would have observed it.
To this random fact can be added the many names of Stratford people Shakespeare knew who appear in the plays, the Warwickshire phrases and the knowledge of country life not likely to have been part of the early life of those cited by the "He couldn't have done it!" cabal. Never mind the lifelong associations of the players from the Lord Chamberlain's/King's Men with the Stratford Shakespeare, who also were mentioned in Shakespeare's Stratford will.

The phrase "to a T" is derived from the phrase "to a tittle", a phrase dating back to early 17th century England. A "tittle" is the dot atop a lowercase 'j'.

The word "nickname" basically used to be "ickname," and "apron" used to be "napron." The changes to the current forms occurred because in spoken English you can't really tell whether you are saying "an ickname" versus "a nickname," or "a napron" versus "an apron."

From the sixteenth to the nineteenth century many famous paintings contained the color 'mummy brown,' which was a paint containing pigment derived from ground up Egyptian mummies, or 'mummia'. Mummies were also ground up to add to medicines. There were also mummy unwrapping parties held by fashionable members of the British upper class (I've been told this hasn't been proven but I believe it).

Almost every earthworm in most of the U.S. came from somewhere else. Native earthworms all but disappeared more than 10,000 years ago, when glaciers from a Pleistocene ice age wiped them out. A few survived further south. But today, virtually all earthworms north of Pennsylvania are non-native.
