My List of Top 5 Inventions

1) weapons & traps — to feed and defend yourself. We later created variations so we could play sports using hockey sticks, baseball & cricket bats, golf clubs, etc. Running and nets became an instant hit among the masses…

2) use of fire — to keep warm and cook food. We found it useful later to fry up a pagan or two after we questioned them and didn’t like their answers…

3) Language & writing — to express thought and transfer knowledge. Women must have learned to speak first and man has regretted that invention ever since. (JUST JOKING!) All you gals put down those weapons!! Ever notice when men talk over the phone or about cars it’s usually a series of grunts, snorts or pops? Yup, now you know about evolutionary progress. So ladies…. am I back on the kiss list??

4) money — was an abstract concept but it made the process of trade and doing a deal practical. Donald Trump ancient ancestors probably invented the concept.

5) electricity — became our new Prometheus and we have used it for all sorts of practical applications, like Angry Birds, World of Warcraft and Farmville… I’m now sufficiently embarrassed and will refrain from further inventive comment. I also couldn’t resist the pun.

I would like to hear your thoughts on what are the top 5 inventions. I screen these so play nice…
