Today in Geek History

Hey blog. How's your weekend going so far? It is the weekend right?

Today is March 30th and today in Geek History...

1811 German chemist Robert Bunsen, you know him as the guy that invented the Bunsen burner. He is born in Germany.

1842 Dr Crawford Long becomes the first surgeon to use anesthetic. It was either and thank goodness too.

1958 Hymen Lipman patents a pencil with an eraser attached. Why hadn't anyone thought of that before?
