Some people say accounting and accountants are boring. They would be wrong. Take for example Walter Diemer. Yes, he was an accountant, but that’s not only. Diemer also invented bubble gum.
Gum was invented in 1870, not bubble gum. Diemer invented the specific brand Bubble Gum. What made Diemer’s gum different was its stretch-ability, lack of stickiness and bright pink color.
Almost seven decades after the creation Diemer confessed: “[The invention] was an accident, I was doing something else and ended up with something with bubbles.” But what was Diemer trying to do? We may never know.
The spontaneous inventor passed away at the age of 93, about 20 years ago.
