1. Black-out blinds/curtains.
2. Water slides
8. Magic Eraser
9. Spell Check
I defy you to think of anything better.
Vespa’s are way better than black out blinds.
Post-its are pretty awesome.
I hate spell check! The words I need help spelling are never in the program and it doesn’t fix the homonymic (see? Just got spell-checked on that one!) errors that can indicate a far deeper ignorance of English than normal spelling errors. Which I make sometimes, embarrassingly. I disable spell check on my word processors until the very end. Grammar check is verboten at any time. Computers do not understand the complexities of human grammar systems and cannot dictate them.
But everything else I agree with. Electricity is a blanket one, though. It might be cheating. Specifically washing machines and dishwashers and hot water and … you know. Everything.
I will take your challenge!
1) Air conditioning 2) showers 3) ok, I lose. I can’t top waterslides.
I will take your challenge! I believe I can top even waterslides! (This was a collaborative effort with Ryan).
1) The internet
2) Birth control
4) Vitamix, the all-powerful blender
6) Public libraries*
10) Running water
*I concede that straws might be cooler than public libraries
**I would have to agree with Jacki about air conditioning except that my newest cause is believing that people who hate the hot (me) should live somewhere that doesn’t ever require air conditioning (where you live).
the number 8 turned into that sunglasses guy…had no idea that would happen. Kids these days.
Family, HA that beats them all!! I know what your all thinking and get past all little petty thoughts and nothing beats your family!
Oh yeah how bout the honest laugh of a toddler, or a hug outta nowhere from your little one. Your kid was in a way invented/created, and so was your family / family unit. Hugs were also invented. Another one would be your child snuggling up for a nap and whispering I love you as they fall asleep. How bout when you come home from work and your kid rushes you, and squeezes with all their might and screams in delight HI DADDY I MISSED YOU!!! Ok sorry for all the mushy stuff, but those are my favorites things in life!
(I posted this once and it didn’t appear. Trying it again, so sorry if it’s here twice. Can you delete one if that happens? Love ya! Aunt P)
Although I would agree with Josh that family is better than all of these, I wouldn’t put it into the invention category. However the only one I would swap of all these great suggestions would be swapping dental floss for spell check. Totally fine to have a misspelled word, but beyond horrible to have popcorn stuck in your teeth.
