Don't call them UFOs any more; the Navy prefers you now use this term.

CINEMA

The main characters’s performance of “Singin’ in the Rain” was completely unscripted in this iconic film.

HISTORY

It's the only document that U.S. Military Intelligence was unable to decode.

What is the Voynich Manuscript?

May not be what you are looking for, but I’m fairly no one has deciphered it.

It's exactly what I was looking for.

The Intelligence Service would spend its free time deciphering encrypted historical documents, including the Voynich Manuscript, a 15th century codex written in an unknown encoded language. It never succeeded, nor has anyone to date (although a translation within the last couple years holds promise).



Well done. TBIY.

From Wiki on Play-Doh:

quote:
The non-toxic, non-staining, reusable modeling compound that came to be known as "Play-Doh" was a pliable, putty-like substance concocted by Noah McVicker of Cincinnati-based soap manufacturer Kutol Products. It was devised at the request of Kroger Grocery, which wanted a product that could clean coal residue from wallpaper...McVicker's nephew, Joe McVicker, joined Kutol with the remit to save the company from bankruptcy. Joe McVicker was the brother-in-law of nursery school teacher Kay Zufall, who had seen a newspaper article about making art projects with the wallpaper cleaning putty.[5] Her students enjoyed it, and she persuaded Noah McVicker (who also sold the putty) and Joe McVicker to manufacture it as a child’s toy.

I've seen Play-Doh on lists of things discovered by accident.

OK, so how about "What is Silly Putty?"

Correct, specifically whiskey, which could be sold by prescription during the Prohibition era.
