4 Marvellous Mistakes: Why Accidents Don’t Have to Be the End of the World


Not every famous discovery has been made in a perfect laboratory at the perfect time. Sure, some were calculated, years of research, and tireless trial and error. Yet many were total accidents. 

At Jenkins Law P.L we see every day that life doesn’t always go to plan. Let’s look at the most famous happy accidents that have made the world a better place

  1. Beer

Let’s start with a fun one. Those clever ancient bakers who began domesticating wild grain made an accidental discovery when the wet grain used to make unleavened bread got wet and when combined with the yeast in the air fermented, producing alcohol as an accidental product. That stinky leftover foam was the first beer. Cheers!

  1. Penicillin

When Alexander Fleming returned from a vacation in 1928 with a real case of the Monday blues, he spotted mold on the petri dish of staphylococcus bacteria. Gross, right? Instead of tossing it out, he discovered that this happy accident contained the antibiotic penicillin, a now mass-produced and lifesaving drug that won him the Nobel prize in 1945. 

  1. Superglue

While many things around the home were happy accidents such as cornflakes, Velcro, and stainless steel, our favorite is Superglue since it can stick almost anything broken back together. In 1942, while trying to make clear plastic gun sights for Allied Forces weapons, the bonding compound was discovered. Hey, stick around for more!

  1. The Dead Sea Scrolls

The random wanderings of a lost goat are to be thanked for the accidental discovery of one of the most important literary findings in history. No, seriously. In 1947, shepherds in Israel were chasing a goat and accidentally discovered a deep cave with clay pots containing the ancient documents. Get that goat a medal.
