Let's take a look at some of the things someone born in 1900 might have witnessed.

1. The first radio broadcast was in 1904. Imagine hearing a voice talk to you through a small box for the first time and thinking "Wow, it can't possibly get more entertaining than this."

2. She lived through two world wars, two Iraq wars, the Hindenburg explosion, , 9/11 and The Titanic.

3. She probably had a diary and lived to see Facebook.

4. This women lived through the discovery of Pluto and the determination that it wasn't a planet.

Obviously, there is so much more but isn't it astonishing to see what events and technological advancements one can witness in their lifetime?
