Just two weeks before he died, Mr. Baldwin was offered several million dollars by electronics giant Sony for the non-tangling design. He refused point blank and publicly ate the blueprints for the design at a press conference in New York.
Family members said the 83-year-old was always a very stubborn man and enjoyed watching people trying to untangle headphones on a regular basis.
Since his death in 1961, it is estimated that $20 billion has been spent on research into the manufacture of headphones that do not tangle.
Yet not one individual or company has succeeded in producing a solid pair of headphones that will not tangle, making Mr. Baldwin out to be one of the biggest cunts that has ever lived.
