Accidental Discoveries That Turned Out to be Game Changers

If you've been following Neatorama for years, you can go ahead and guess that this list will contain Post-it Notes, microwave cooking, penicillin, and Viagra. But this video covers 13 different accidental discoveries, and Viagra is not among them (but you can read that story here). I might argue with the inclusion of Nutella, which doesn't seem to have been an accident at all, but it's still an interesting story. They all are! History classes in school have a hard time covering just the important foundational stories they need to go over, so the history of everyday products rarely gets a mention, no matter how good the story is. That's what the Weird History channel is for.  -via Digg
