    Best invention/Worst invention,.. You name it.

    I figure the best is the 'merry go round'. Children, with unlimited energy, can play on these things for hours. All they do is go around in circles. Parental dream come true. I remember it from my childhood. Being on the machine was sort of like being on a ship, captain of the ship. Unfortunately, wet weather and muddy conditions enabled us to roll out huge 'turds' of mud. We would compare them for size. Children can ruin almost anything, but this is the best invention ever.

    Worst invention, the mirror. I can only imagine what women might have been like before they could primp in front of the mirror. I am sure they would have cleaned their faces and done something with their nasty hair. Not spent hours primping. Back then they might have been cooking or cleaning or some such. Fetch me a beer or something.

    The first thing that came to mind for the worst was that thing that you put on your abs and it shocked you until you got 6 pack abs.....

    The personal computer for both.

    Best: It has enabled people to connect and to stay informed on an unprecedented level and at speeds unheard of and undreamed of before.

    Worst: It has enabled an entire generation of children to NOT know what a merry-go-round is.

    Best: powered transportation. Allows folks to be able to conduct commerce beyond the distance they can carry something.

    Worst: governments. Allows a few really slick liars to rip off HUGE masses of people.

    The best invention was electricity, without it we wouldn't be having this conversation or HVAC.

    The worst invention was television, it made a majority plain stupid, for they believe all the lies told by it.

    Best- women's pump shoes

    Worst- rap/ hip-hop music

    I have to admit the electric guitar was a close second for 'best'

    Ga has the correct answer for 'worst' so I tried to keep it more comical with mine.

    Best invention, paper. Helped spread knowledge throughout the world. On the flip side, video games. Only because Rap music was already taken.
