    Being able to convince a bunch of homicidal meat loving apes to cooperate and work together, that's humanity's greatness.
    But only for the second paragraph,Crow.
    Man did not invent fire, I voted for the chip.
    Not an invention, but I'd say its his ability to observe and learn.
    The electric guitar, a noise maker, someone must be in jest.

    Re: Invention

    I would have to say Internal Combustion Engine because technological innovations afterwards just seems to have skyrocketed after that.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    How many thousands of years have humans been able to make fire before the invention of the internal combustion engine?

    Re: Invention

    I was torn between the I.C. engine and bubblewrap, but had to go with bubble wrap, first off, I have never had to send back anything packed in the stuff, and second, having a good pop session is an added perk to buying shipped items, it's a great stress reliever. Bwrap for the win!
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
