Farmers in China had been turning up the bones in their fields for generations but most often they were ground up and sold as medicine.

The bootlegging and brothel organization was massive and when asked what he did, Capone often replied "I am just a businessman, giving the people what they want".

The reasons for the explosion are still disputed.
