Spencer Silver was supposed to invent a strong adhesive for the aerospace industry. But he accidentally made the opposite; a weak adhesive made of tiny acrylic microspheres.
I'm supposed to invent a strong adhesive.
But instead, I've made the exact opposite.
Spencer Silver tried to convince other businessman and businesswoman to sell the "Sticky Note". But none of them gave in. Instead they rejected it, and saying it was the most craziest idea in the world. They thought it would never sell, and it wouldn't be worth it.
Are you crazy Silver! You think this would work. This is the most craziest idea you've ever had!
I think the "Sticky Note" will work. We can at least try.
5 years past, and Silver had no hope. Until one day, a guy name Art Fry, another 3M chemist and frequent choir singer, joined Silver to make a better "Sticky Note". Fry had some problems with his every day things that the "Sticky Note" could fix. The two men made a more better "Sticky Note". After they did, they sold it, and they sold a lot. Know, everyone is buying it for school supplies, office supplies, and more!
