  There is a range of  stories (not all of which have been published in The Swan Magazine) to review from the list on the right hand side of the page

For instance:  Do you know that an internationally renowned physicist from Long Island invented the Kippon (using Velcro (R) hooks to keep the yarmulke or kipah (Jewish ritual skullcap) firmly on the heads of Jewish boys, so that they could play basketball?

It’s a really hilarious “investigative” story, and I’m thrilled to be mentioned along with the authors of a number of very prominent Velcro (TM) applications!  
With many thanks for your message & story,
