Mental Floss Brings You 24 Scientific Discoveries That Happened by Accident [Video]

Looks like we should be figuring out how to cause scientists to make more mistakes.

Eureka! We accidentally found a Mental Floss video of a bunch of accidental scientific discoveries. OK, we found the video on purpose, but you might be surprised to see that some of the marvels of science that we rely on today, like microwaves, pacemakers, and dynamite, were originally stumbled upon accidentally.

Actually, it turns out lots of explode-y things were invented by accident. If anyone ever told you that you learn the most from your mistakes, it looks like scientists might agree.
