Century Ride

By Sensi Staff
[secondary_title allow_html="true"]

One hundred years looks much longer when you break it down into days (36,500) months (1,200), or decades (10). But for something to survive a full century takes a lot more than third-grade math. According to, the following came into existence 100 years ago and survive all this time later. We’re not sure what this says except Baby Ruth, Wonder Bread, and Cheez-Its, you must have some serious preservatives.

  • The term robot, originally called R.U.R. (Rossum’s Universal Robots)
  • Baby Ruth candy bar
  • Lie detector machine
  • The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier
  • Chanel No. 5 perfume
  • Wonder Bread
  • Cheez-It crackers
  • Barrons magazine
  • The roller coaster
  • Insulin
  • White Castle burgers
  • Laughing Cow cheese
  • Wise Potato Chips
  • Lowes Home Improvement
  • United States Figure Skating Association

The one thing that ties everything together is staying power.
