It’s Monday again, and some of you might be reluctant to start your work week. Everything you take on is an absolute disaster, and everything you try to make things better only makes them worse.Sound familiar?
Oh, but listen to the unfortunate tale of chemist and inventor Thomas Midgley, as told on the BBC comedy/trivia/quiz show QI. I’m sure his disastrous inventions caused far bigger problems than you did.
The entire story is also on Wikipedia, but it’s funnier and more shocking to hear it get increasingly worse and see people’s reactions.
