You've got a few wrong ones in there. Email, and chat rooms are not 50 years old.

#11 Apparently, Richard Davis pretty sure, that he invented kevlar vest in 1969. Quote:-"In 1969, I invented soft concealable body armor and subsequently founded Second Chance Body Armor." - end quote.
So... did I missed something?

Dick, at least in the part you quoted there was no mention of kevlar. Could be he made it from something else at first? Or that the name kevlar came in '71?
