What did they even do? We asked the Internet to answer — and they gave us some pretty funny answers.
1. Flappers were just short skirts.
The internet had some very interesting responses to this one, and there was more than one version of the tale (including an explanation for why flappers didn’t wear pants), but we’re going to get to that in a minute.
2. They don’t really wear tights, but they wear pants.
In some versions of this tale, they dress like an American girl, but they do wear pants. (And don’t even get us started on those leg stretches!)
3. She was wearing a skirt, and he was dressed like a man!
There’s definitely a gender difference here. Men wear pants, women wear tights.
4. He was wearing socks!
In one story, they were wearing socks for modesty (they were in the throes of summer, after all).

6. They never wore tights in the first place!
The Internet loves this one too. One version even included a reference to a book that supposedly describes the secret to dressing like a woman.
7. He’s so short, he shouldn’t wear tights!

8. I know, but these pants would be so tight.
If you like this story, then here is one about girls with tights…
9. …and girls without tights and…
This is also kind of fun because at least one person even suggested that he was wearing a suit!

A new study says the Earth’s biggest natural disaster—Hurricane Sandy in 2012—could have been avoided if a major shift in the Gulf Stream and global warming would only occurred once every few hundred years.
This is important because hurricanes are very volatile weather systems that can cause enormous damage. In the United States
