    5. Skilled Cowboys could turn regular Dynamite and Fire Bottles into Rocket Propelled versions just by looking at a target, concentrating and throwing.
    6. Horses would walk off cliffs to find their owners.
    7. A person on top of a train, shooting wild animals with no regard for safety, was not a cause for concern back in the Wild West.
    8. Nobody back then knew how to swim. 
    9. Horses included.
    10. People did not drown, they simply died instantly when in too deep water.
    11. Horses included, again.
    12. Some carts and carriages had Hydrolics that defied physics.
    13. Mountain Lions and Bears were the Ninja's of the West.
    14. Nuns could give out rosaries that would make people be less accurate when shooting at the person holding the rosary.

    18.  If you were a prison guard and a prisoner escaped custody, it was standard practice to shoot them in the head even if they are returned to you hogtied and helpless. 
    19.  horse hooves magically absorbed bullets and transferred them to the rider. 
    20.  apparently people were more coordinated back then as they could ride a horse, fire a gun dry, reload, and repeat all without crashing their horse or carriage. nowadays, people can't change songs on their ipod or answer their phone without swerving into oncoming traffic.

    24. Back then tobacco really was good for you, giving a person bullet time reflex speeds. Moonshine also had this effect, though it was rumored to be part of early Government experiments due to it's lack of use among the general population. Popular among reformed criminals.

    I wanted to write something about that, but didn't have enough experience with snake bites in the game to tell it properly. I've only been bitten once by a snake before I shoot it in the face, but it looked kinda damaging and seemed like two bites (before regaining health) could kill you. So, do you (or does anyone else) know how many bites it takes for one to kill you? 
     
    Also, if you don't mind me expanding on that one just a tad...
     
    27. The bites also contain no venom or long-lasting effects.
