tonight’s fact made me lol rather a lot 😂 due to the fact that it is irony at its very finest 🙈
let’s get on it …
#tdil that the patent for the fire hydrant was lost in a fire 😅
because of the above, it isn’t actually verifiable who invented the fire hydrant! like, how brilliant is that 🙈 the guy or gal who invented something to destroy fires will never be verifiable due to a fire 😂
the story goes that the typical fire hydrant that we know and love was invented by a dude named frederick graff … but the patent was destroyed in 1836, when the washington d.c. patent office suffered a fire 🔥
turns out that fred was pretty active in the world of fire-fighting tools … he apparently invented all sorts of things like water-filled cauldrons and underground tanks.
it feels like it all just makes it even more ironic that one of his greatest and most revolutionary inventions will never be officially his … because of the very thing he was trying to prevent! 🙄
anyway, today’s was super short but i really enjoyed it 😂 i hope that you did too!
goodnight 😘 #tdil
