When such as Roman emperors had food testers to test their food......obviously,how long did the emperor wait to see if it was safe to eat or not? My thoughts are that if the tester didn't drop dead there and then,the emperor would then eat the food,but didn't they think that a slow working poison might've been added to the food?🤔
Are you thinking of Emperor Claudius? Poison was a woman's weapon.
 
Why, in the age where you could leave your front door open without fear, did all the wardrobes have locks on ?
They may have been the most secure place to keep stones so no-one pinched them to make circles.

Why do women in the Middle East wear black burkhas? Wouldn't white burkhas be cooler?

Interesting, burkha can be spelt burkha, burka or burqa, which probably makes it a handy word in scrabble.
