So I'm a bit of a history buff and and I always look at this "Today In History" thing and I saw that today in 1836 Samuel Colt at the age of 18 received an American patent for the Colt revolver.

Just thought that was kinda cool.

Sammy Colt was born 1814 so he was 18 in 1832, he did however apply for his first patent at the age of 18.
