My Favorite Scientist
All the time, I am thankful for the invention of something that has enriched my life and for it, I thank George Washington Carver, one of the first African-American scientists. What did he invent? Peanut Butter. (He invented all sorts of other things too, but it's the peanut butter that I thank him for.) As I understand it, GWC was lactose intolerant and was looking for something else to put on his toast. He was also a scientist that was working with peanuts at the time and discovering all sorts of new uses for peanuts, so peanut butter was born.
