Have you used post-it notes?

Post-it Notes came about through a fortunate accident.

Spencer Silver, a scientist at 3M, accidentally developed a weak adhesive that stuck lightly to surfaces but could easily be removed.

Years later, another 3M employee, Art Fry, recognized the potential of Silver’s adhesive when he needed a solution to keep bookmarks in his hymn book. Together, they turned this chance discovery into the iconic product we know today.

A lucky chance!
