Did you invent anything in life?
The idea for the trampoline came to 16-year-old George Nissen in 1930 during a trip to the circus. George liked the way the trapeze dancers ended up falling into a large net. Since he was an enthusiastic gymnast in the gymnastics club from an early age, he imagined a new piece of sports equipment on which one could make great jumps. At home in the garage, Nissen built his first trampoline. The name trampoline comes from the Spanish word "el trampolín" (German: the springboard). The trampoline was best known during World War II: The jumping device was used to prepare pilots, parachutists and divers.
Popsicle, or also: popsicle
One evening in the USA in 1905, 11-year-old Frank Epperson wanted to make himself soda with soda. He mixed everything together and stirred with a wooden stick. Since the soda wasn't cold enough for him, he put it outside to cool down. The young Epperson forgot his drink and since it was winter the lemonade froze overnight. The next day he brought in the frozen soda. In the warm room the ice cream peeled off the rim of the mug and Frank had a popsicle in his hand. It wasn't until years later that he applied for a patent for the "Popsicles" (ice lollies) and sold the first at a party.
In the winter of 1873 in the United States, 15-year-old Chester Greenwood went ice skating. He had a scarf wrapped around his head because the woolen hats of the time scratched him too much. However, the scarf kept slipping and Chester's ears froze. That's when he got the idea for earmuffs. He straightened some clincher hoops and then asked his grandma to sew real fur on it to pad the ears. In 1877 he had his invention patented and earned a lot of money with it.
In an accident in his father's workshop in France in 1812, three-year-old Louis Braille (pronounced: Braj) went blind. The parents tried very hard to ensure that Louis still got a good education. It wasn't that easy back then. Louis came to the Paris Institute for the Blind and learned the so-called "night writing" there. This font was intended for the military to be able to communicate even at night without light. Louis Braille tinkered with the night script and tried to simplify it. He replaced each letter of the alphabet with a certain number of dots that stood out from the sheet. At the age of 16 he had developed Braille. In 1850, Braille was officially introduced as Braille in France and then in other countries as well. Even today it is the official Braille worldwide.
