In the pantheon of great equation discoveries, Einstein’s theory of relativity, developed in 1905, is near the top of the list. E= MC2 was a huge breakthrough for the world of physics. An equally as important equation is ‘White Cotton + H2O = EXCELLENT RESULTS". I doubt that’s what Alvin Davis had in mind when he introduced the world to the Super Soaker, but sometimes great discoveries are made when you aren’t even looking for them!
Unfortunately, Alvin Davis passed away on Friday, June 5th, at the age of 78 in Wynnewood. The super soaker was introduced to the market in 1990 and sales took off immediately. His legacy as a toy-manufacturer who brought joy to millions of kids will love on for a long, long time. However, his accidental contributions to beautiful women getting their chests soaked with water and therefore turning their shirts see-through will forever be appreciated.
