The modern washing machine is less than 200 years old, having been invented in the 1850s. Ancient peoples cleaned their clothes by pounding them on rocks and washing the dirt away in local streams. By the early 1800s a washing machine was invented in France, called the Ventilator. It was a barrel-shaped metal drum with holes that was turned by hand over a fire.

Many of the artists are looking to send messages.

January 15 is National Hat Day - the day set aside to pay a tribute to one of the most needed human "inventions" - the hat. Hats may be worn for safety and protection, religious reasons, ceremonial reasons, warmth or fashion. In the Middle Ages, hats were an indicator of social status. Structured hats for women began to be worn in the late 16th century. Millinery is the designing and manufacture of hats, the term “milliner” derived from the city of Milan, Italy. The best quality hats were made in Milan in the 18th century.
To observe National Hat Day at Freaking News, design hats with any unusual shapes, or from any unusual elements. Here's some good examples.
