Without mother-in-law, the history of the entire civilization could have developed differently. For example, we owe the discovery of X-rays to Wilhelm Roentgen's mother-in-law. Here is how it was. Wilhelm worked late in his laboratory office. Going to bed, the tired physicist forgot to turn off one of the devices. He turned off the light and went to the bedroom. An hour later his mother-in-law woke him up: “I was passing by your office and through the crack under the door I noticed that there was something shining. Go figure it out, otherwise I don’t know what to turn off. ” As it turned out, a screen with barium synergistic was glowing - under the influence of rays unknown at that time. If the mother-in-law did not notice the glow in the late evening, Roentgen would not have seen it in the light of day, and therefore would not have discovered the rays, which were later named after him.
