70 years!

Today is the 70th anniversary of the discovery of something we oftentimes take for granted...Teflon, otherwise known as polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE). It was discovered by accident! It has molecular weight that has been known to transcend 30,000,000. For those of you unbeknownst of what this means; it happens to be one of the most capacious molecules known to man! What this all means is what most all of us already know; just try to get something to stick to it! The best part is that just like the post-it note it was discovered by accident.

Sorry about that....the nerd in me made me post
