Betty White is a comic dynamo who's been performing for over 70 years in a variety of roles. (She actually holds a Guinness World Record for the longevity of her career.) 70 years seems like a long time (probably because it is), but would you believe that inventions like the ballpoint pen or even sliced bread hadn't been invented until after she was born?
Betty White was born on January 22, 1922, so let's see all the cool stuff that was invented after her birth.
Although it seems simple enough, sliced bread was not invented until 1928. Otto Frederick Rohwedder created the Chillicothe Baking Company, which sold the first loaf that utilized Rohwedder's bread slicing machine.
Penicillin was discovered in 1928 by professor Alexander Fleming - just 6 years after a little baby Betty White was born.
Most are under the impression that Scotch Tape originated in Scotland some time in the 18th century, but boy, is that not the case. A young ex-bango player named Richard Drew actually created the miracle adhesive in 1929 - when Betty White was only 7.
In 1929, Drew, an inventor for 3M, started the development of transparent tape - a game-changing product that was debuted to the public in 1930.
