DESCRIPTION (250-400 words) : There are so many people out there in the world today who are hoping to create the next great thing when it comes to inventions. But what a lot of people don’t realize is that you make your money by obtaining patents and ensuring that everything is in your name before going public with your invention. Because if you don’t, you might end up like Catherine Hettinger, who invented the fidget spinner. At one point, she couldn’t afford the $400 to renew her patent, and now that the invention has blown up to widespread proportions, she isn’t making a dime. But, there are people who made sure that their patent was up to date, like the inventor of the Billy Bob teeth. While it’s hard to believe this invention made someone rich, you’d be surprised what the public is into. The Pet Rock was probably one of the most ridiculous inventions to ever go big, but its inventor is laughing all the way to the bank! The Singing Fish is probably one of the ultimate white elephant gifts for a group setting, and because it is so weird and unique, it got its creator extremely rich.
If you haven’t caught on yet, we’re going to be talking about unlikely inventions that got people very rich. If you have ever had a really weird idea in your head, but disregarded it because you don’t think it will catch on, think again. You’d be surprised at just how many people might share in your absolute weirdness!

She didn't "lose out" on making tons of money dummy; the reason manufacturers made the fad product was because it was free game with a wave of morons who bought and shared spinner. It's not expensive enough of a product to invest risk money to advertise...hence no large company would've wanted it back then. On top of that, there are plenty of loopholes in the utility patent that she had in which plenty of others could've made similar useless pieces of spinning trash.
So these inventors families can say for many generations what one of there family achieved something that not everyone can , inspiring other in there family to be successful in life , that's the real value of there invention the money may help to be more creative thereafter :)
@ 5:53 "if your a past or present meat eater?" Who's a PAST meat eater? What kind of moron doesn't eat meat? And does any one person FIGHT over the wishbone? Do you even know about what people DO with a wishbone? I guess you think someone would grab one and say, "this is MY wishbone" and then break it themselves.
Isn't it interesting how people will well knowingly know someone else invented something, but yet those people die broke along with their families and generations to be also being broke, when in reality their family member made something that made millions and sometimes billions.
Child marriages are common:
On a recent day, eight community elders sat in a [refugee] camp, some chewing khat, the narcotic leaf favored by most Yemeni men. Seven have married off their girls this year.
Even Salim, the elder who worked at the charity, is preparing to marry off his two daughters, ages 13 and 14. "I want to feel secure of their futures, if only for economic reasons," he said.
Mohammad Ali al-Ansi married off his two girls, ages 13 and 14, in April. "My heart is bleeding inside, but I was forced to do this," he said. "I have no job. Its difficult for me to feed my 10 children." He received $1,600 in dowry for each of his girls, he said. But after paying for their weddings and meeting other debts, the money has nearly run out. "If things get worse, theres no doubt Ill marry off my 12-year-old daughter," Ansi said.
More on Ansis 14-year-old daughter Fatma, married to 21-year-old Zaid:
Fatma spent her day cooking and washing clothes for her in-laws. When asked the name of her husbands family, Fatma didnt know it. She remembers her father telling her and her sister, Amal, that the family needed money. She remembers that Amal was in tears because her new husband was taking her to another region. The two sisters have not seen each other since their weddings.
"I am too young to be married," Fatma said. "I want to study. I want to learn how to write. I have sacrificed for my family," she continued, her voice dropping to a whisper.
Minutes later, her husband arrived at the tent, and Fatma went silent. He said Fatma was "at a good age to marry." When asked if she could attend school, he shook his head no. "Shes a little too old for school," he said.
Female sexual freedom among the Tuareg : Flora Drury has written up the sex habits of the Saharas Muslim Tuareg people based on the work by Henrietta Butler. Some excerpts:
Their men became known as the blue men of the Sahara because the dye from their distinctive indigo scarves rub off onto their faces giving them a mysterious air. The Tuareg evoke images of a long forgotten and romantic age.
