Pro baseball once had women players.
While there are currently no female players in Major League Baseball, there have been plenty of women in professional men's leagues. The first was Lizzy Arlington, who pitched during the ninth inning for the Reading Coal Heavers in 1898 and won her team the game. A little over 30 years later, an African-American woman, Jackie Mitchell, pitched against the Yankees during an exhibition game, striking out both Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig. What's more impressive: Mitchell was 17 years old at the time.
Cars Weren't Invented in the United States

Registering as Married at a Hotel in North Carolina Makes It So
Let's say a man and a woman walk into a hotel in North Carolina, request to share a room, and claim they are married. By common law marriage rules in the state, that man and woman would legally be married.
As the couple "outwardly present themselves as husband and wife to the public," they are deemed a common law marriage, that is honored and valid in North Carolina.
Should you find yourself in need of a hotel room for the night, you may want to fess up if you aren't a married couple.
