Hurt: Pump I have never used it....

Umm...yeah, so...there would be no computer without a printing press. In fact, we'd probably still be stuck in the 1700s. Oh, and jerkfight - if you drank any drink, took a shower, washed dishes, filled up a gas tank, put out a fire, flushed a toilet...then yeah, you've used a pump. :-P

good point... I feel dumb

Why do I get the feeling that the computer is going to win by tomorrow?

EDIT@Panhead: You wouldn't be able to use a computer without electric generation! :D

but its still invented, just because it makes something else impossible doesn't mean it is better IMO, also i consider electricity to be a discovery

Everybody, hush about the discovery thing already. I get it, I'm an idiot, go away.

Heh, check this out:

Computer- American

Electrical Generation- American

Light Bulb- American

Printing Press- American (Johannes Gutenberg , german,1454)

Pump- ??? (d.a. was right we due it to Archimede, Greek)

Telecommunications- American

Television- American (scotsman engineer John Logie Baird, 1925)

Toilet- American (ehr, may be we due this to ancient Chinese and Hindus ( whilst also my ancestors, the ancient romans, did a large use of these devices in their houses) but we may perhaps due the honour of the modern w.c. to the british Alexander Cummings,1775

America clearly owns all other countries 8)

Cars, yeah, useful things but there has to be a better way to get around. I'd say that Bikes are better for shorter journeys (into town or similar), & public transport is better for longer journeys.

The light bulb, a useful thing, it's also partly responsible for the electrical generation as someone made one with 2 filaments by mistake & noticed that there was a current going between them & the thermionic valve was born. The valve (or vacuum tube) was & to an extent still is used in Hi-Fi, televisions (not now, but it was), guitar & bass amps, & numerous other things.

Same reasons as yesterday.

BTW, I think Computer should have been replaced with Transistor. Now, THAT was a pivotal invention!

I was thinking about that, but decided against it for two reasons:

1) I couldn't decide between transistor, vacuum tube, modern microchip, etc.

2) I didn't want three pages of people asking "What is a transistor?" :-)

Pivotal as the computer is, the Printing Press has really done a lot more for civilization in the past few centuries than the computer has...yet. I think in another hundred years, the computer will win out, but right now, if the computers across the world were to be scrubbed from history, we'd only be set back about a hundred years. If the printing press were never invented, we'd be rolled back a millennium or so. (Why that long? Because I think a second dark ages would've actually backtracked our advancement)

The toilet is what allowed cities to develop. I'm serious.

See, before the invention of the toilet, for sanitary reasons, human populations could only fill up as much space as a bloody potato wagon (technical term) could reasonably travel every day. Once the toilet (and, of course, the sewer) were invented, we were able to build larger and higher. The pros and cons of this can be debated, of course, but it has certainly advanced human knowledge considerably to be able to live so near those we work with. :-)

EDIT: Oh, well, it's dead anyway. Long live the toilet!
