So you might as well know. Yes, the sugar cube was invented by Jakub Krystof Rad in 1841 in Dacice, Bohemia. Somebody told me that this event was going to be observed today in the town of the sugar cube's inception. I found an article about it, but was unable to find an exact date, or know why October 12 is seen as an appropriate day to mark this revolution in sugar-chunk shaping.

What a sweetheart to invent a cubing machine to stop his beloved from being injured. Nowadays it's, "Just hold on to that bit of the engine, while I start it!"
