Ancient jeans

Blue jeans have a 6,000 year-old Peruvian ancestor

Indigo dye for clothing is a lot older than the invention of blue jeans — almost 6,000 years older, to be exact.

This man is the biggest con man of all time...
First there was the Russian hacking into the DNC's emails, and Trump's call for the Russians to hack into his opponent's communications; then there were the allegations of deep Russian connections amidst Trump's highest-ranking aides... And now, somewhat logically, comes this.

What's next, blood-letting?

Another pseudo-scientific fad, or a revolutionary old-new re-discovered invention?

The bodies of a number of Rio Olympic athletes have been covered with red circles from cupping.
The easier (lazier?) answer could be that there simply hasn't been a single female presidential candidate offered by either of the two main parties.
