    Greatest Inventions

    Not to reinforce any national stereotypes, but in a recent poll we British have voted for Teabags as one of the greatest inventions ever.


    This article
    lists these other inventions in the top 10:

    The wheel
    The fridge
    Sewers
    The plough
    Penicillin
    The internet
    Armour
    Light bulbs
    The clock
    Teabags


    There is an on-going vote to decide which of these is the most important invention.

    Speaking of voting, I'm sure there is some other voting thing going on in the UK today...?

    I'd of thought the telephone would top the internet? Without the former there would not be the latter!

    And harnessing electricity/ water with copper wire/ pipe plays a large part in my life.
    As does armour when I've woken the household after another vocal gaming session.

    Soap? We'd probably need a lot more penicillin without it. Just sayin...
