You are absolutely correct. I knew there were eight but I can't count!

Not a lot of people know about that strange event. You must be a history buff.

Delaware has a few:
Nylon developed by the duPont Company
Several duPont mansions in Wilmington
The Playtex Living Bra
Related, Apollo (and many subsequent era) space suits made by ILC, which was a spin-off of Playtex
Joe Biden (well, he moved here from PA)
The first state to ratify the Constitution (ergo, we are known as the First State)
George Thorogood and the Delaware Destroyers:

The Destroyers may be the most exciting thing to ever come out of the Blue Hen State.

I live in Ohio and I know about the Molasses Flood of 1919!

Now how many know about the Cleveland East Ohio Gas explosion of 1944?

I hate history tests! But...The earliest white visitors to the great Allegheny forest talked of the redmen they met and the wonders they were shown by the enthusiastic Indians. A letter dated 1629 describes a visit with the Seneca Indians in 1627 at the oil springs near Hinsdale, New York. Ischua was the Indian name equivalent to “Oil place” or “Plenty oil here.”The earliest white visitors to the great Allegheny forest talked of the redmen they met and the wonders they were shown by the enthusiastic Indians. ” But, heck, all this was just history (ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha)

it had to be an awful way to go, suffocating, drowning effectively in molasses.
probably would take about 30-60 seconds to loose consciousness.
