Remember Super Soakers? Yes, they are still out in toy stores. But have you ever seen the inventor of it? Ronnie Johnson, a very humble NASA scientist stumbled upon his invention in his bathroom. His invention changed the water pistol toy genre forever. I remember buying one of these when I was a kid, but always wanted the biggest and baddest one. When I did get it, It had 3 tanks of water, for barrels for 2 streams of water and a backpack. Being a little 4 foot 10 guy at that time, I quickly realized that bigger wasn’t always better. It took so long to pump to get enough pressure for both barrels and the backpack was heavy due to the water weight. ugh.
