Life without a goal is completely empty!

Here in Brazil it is known as burr!


From this picture of burr or another similar type is that the Velcro was invented in 1948 by Swiss engineer George de Mestral. One day, returning from a walk in the woods, he was angered to find burrs stuck in your clothes and hair of your dog. He decided to find out how they could cling so stubbornly, without any adhesive.


Looking through the microscope, Goerge found that the burr legs ending in little Ganchinho, which clung to anything furry. Imagine a light bulb lighting up over your head! Thus was born the closure made numerous hooks and laces (found in shorts, pants). The name "Velcro" is a combination of two French words "velours" (velvet) and "crochet" (hook).


Today in Brazil is the holiday of Independence, so we have a long weekend! Have a great week blessed by God friends ..
