Inventions we can't live without

Postby MissLT » Sun Jul 24, 2005 7:31 pm

I bet we all have our appreciation and admiration for people who have invented all the great inventions such as airplanes, telephones, computers, cars, printers, scanners, cameras, etc. My question to you is which one(s) do you like best? In other words, which one(s) do you think the world would be dull if we didn't have that specific invention?

the country ?
the society ?
the web ?

I could live without an Internet for a long period of time if I had to, but I could not live without a TV. I must have my TV on when I'm at home. Sometimes, I don't watch it, but it still has to be on because I need noises. Quietness drives me crazy, for I tend to have my thoughts wandering a lot. It's not even funny especially when I'm home alone.

I have told my friends again and again: Do learn to say at least one sentence of foreign language if you are going to travel abroad----Where is the bathroom? 8)

:lol: funny)

On the one hand it's funny, but on the another hand it's important to know how to ask it in a critical situation.

Try to analyse last century! :idea: What was new? Electricity, machines (cars, trains, steam-ships), further modern machines, computers, Internet etc.
I can't mention the main invention for me. But just try to think what could we do without these...even without a toilet in the skyscraper? :lol:

I don't have this problem when I go out. My cousins do, though. One of my cousins has to go every two or three hours. Her bladder is just as small as a nut, I guess :lol: .

hi!!!

I would lose my will of living if I couldn´t listen to my cds. I wouldn´t know what to do without my stereo.I can listen to music on the internet too, but it is not the same.
It is too painful to think about it...

My cousins are like that when we're on a trip and if they don't have their CD player with them; they would get really grouchy. Quite scary to sit next to them around that time :lol: .

I think the most important thing that we need is electricity. In our home without electricity means light, TV, A/C, refrigerator, computer, etc will not operate. In public, there will be no lights. Manufactures, hospitals, businesses, markets, transportation and many things else will have a major issue. We use power to run things that we use in daily basic and we can not live without it.
