Hello my name is Richard James and I am a naval engineer
I invented the Slinky
This is boring
It was 1943 when I accidentally invented the slinky
I hate my job
I was stationed at the William Cramp & Sons shipyards in Philadelphia
WHY WON'T THIS WORK?
I was developing springs that could support and stabilize sensitive instruments aboard ships in rough seas.
I accidentally knocked one of the springs from a table, and watched as the spring "stepped" in a series of arcs to a stack of books and to the floor.
And that was when the slinky was born
