Just spent the weekend camping with my 3 year old grandson - what a blast.

His dad brought along a couple of stainless insulated cups marked STANLEY.
Nothing odd there - but under the logo it said “since 1913”.  What happened in
1913 that they would call that their start date?

Also, I though this experiment failed in the 60’s

and why would it have this disclaimer:

 WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals including lead, which is
known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other
reproductive harm.

Unless you were planing old lead water pipes?
