Robert Ridgely Taylor was born Sept. 1, 1935, in Baltimore and grew up in Cincinnati. He showed an early gift for salesmanship when he sold a homing pigeon to a pet store - "numerous times," according to a statement from his family.

So let's all congratulate him for being an underhanded thieving little swindler.

Look, for those of us old enough to remember the pre-liquid soap days, liquid soap was a watershed in shower masturbation.  This man is to be revered as a visionary.

In general I agree, but the fact he pulled that off really made me laugh.

He also benefited from being a white male born in the year whose babies were most likely in American and world history to benefit from their times and achieve upward mobility and economic success.  If your dream is to be born poor and die rich, your best shot is to be white, male and born in 1935 specifically.

This cohort was the perfect age to avoid every draft, come of age in the heyday of post WWII economic boom, and be educated by the over-educated but often underemployed WWII vets who'd taken advantage of the GI Bill.  While obviously the years around it were good too, no other cohort has quite achieved the levels of economic improvement as those white males born in 1935.

Passenger pigeons are extinct. Homing pigeons, sometimes called carrier pigeons, are still around today.

This.

I can buy a six pack of bar soap for the same price of one of those pumps and I then don't have a piece of plastic to send to a landfill.

It's these types of "innovations" we can do without.

He did not invent liquid soap. I started using Dr. Bronner's liquid soap in the 1970s. The peppermint and almond oil soap are excellent. Maybe Taylor invented the handpump.

Dr Bronner's has a way too overpowering scent.  But the conspiracy theory crap printed all over it was amusing.

Mr Taylor's innovation was putting the soap in an easy to use and attractive pump.  That seems obvious to us, but all too often fortunes were made by doing what is now obvious.  But it wasn't until some guy thought, "hey, I have an idea!"

it is, says so right here: " pumpable liquid soap that rendered the traditional bar obsolete"

i'll have to check under my vanity because last time i looked there was some of the obsolete bar soap there. in fact i showered with some after mowing today.

Came to say the same thing.

Mass-retail sales of bar soap increased 4.7%, to $1.2 billion in 2011, from $1.1 billion in 2010

$1.2 billion a year hardly sounds obsolete to me.

Indeed. I wonder how much landfill waste his 'invention' is responsible for?

The only exception for liquid soap should be that foaming stuff they have now in most public restrooms, which comes in refill things anyway so not nearly as wasteful. That stuff is awesome. I despise places that haven't switched over from the nasty pink gooey soap yet.
