Now that's a cool product. I'll have to buy some when they come out.

A lucky break for a man who may be the world's worst chemist. I mean, trying to invent something and not writing down what he was trying? He could've killed himself with that nitric acid. Crazy bastard.

Worst chemist, because he wasn't a chemist at all. I believe he qualifies as an inventor though. You know, one of those crazy people who try things without really knowing what they're doing?

Definitely. His method consisted of "what happens if I mix this specialty shampoo with this industrial dye?" He was working off of trial and error, not the scientific method.

Most inventors do actually know what they're doing. I don't know where you got the idea that they're paid to flail around randomly.

He's an amateur inventor, not a professional. He didn't get paid unless he actually worked something out.

On the other hand, professional inventors rarely if ever get rich from their inventions, because the company (3M, and Postit notes being a big example) owns the invention, and the inventor gets no recognition or any extra pay for it.
