In 1853 Dr. Remus Van Shelton was experimenting with a formula that would turn him invisible. He worked tirelessly to come upon the right formula. During this process, he invented many products we now enjoy like colorless tape, the shoe horn, and the elastic waistband. The closest he ever got to the formula that would turn him invisible was getting his derby to float several inches above his head. Many a person looking over a tall hedge thought they had seen an invisible man. Consequently, Dr. Remus was never able to catch his hat. His derby floated several inches above him for the rest of his life. They say if you visit Dr. Shelton's grave late at night you will see his old weathered derby floating above his tombstone.
