RE: Best Invention / Worst Invention
Unfogged, that's exactly why I refuse to buy a smartphone, install Whatsapp and be available all the time (I work from home anyway. I already *am* available). And yet, people look at me as if there's something wrong with me (well, on top of everything else that is wrong with me)

And apparently I cannot use fuckinng Uber without one. Well, fuck you, too Dodgy

I'd go with the Internet as best (I mean, everything that helped us move on from a life dedicated entirely to finding food, preparing food and consuming food, and gave us the time to explore the world and learn about it, is up there too) - because it gave us access to pretty much all the knowledge we've gathered so far.

Now, what we choose to do with it, is a whole other story...

I might have to go with monotheistic religions as worst.

I'd say it is both one of the best and one of the worst. It allows amazing access to information but also allows easy spreading of garbage.

Well, like I said - what we choose to do with it is our fault, not the Internet's.

Maybe if the Elders of the Internet talked to the hoi-polloi... Rolleyes

Important not to mix those up. Otherwise you find only charred remains in the bedroom, meantime soldier-boy is spraying his enemies with anal lube...

Best: Can't choose. All are important. Maybe concept of written law and impartial justice?
Worst: Annoying adverts.

Worst: cellular phone - the expectation that everybody be available on demand to anybody, anywhere, any time and the inability for people to focus on where they are and what they are doing instead of being on the fucking phone all the time

The ringer on my phone is almost always off. I bought it and pay the monthly bill for my convenience.

I watch people around me who can't make it through five minutes without their phone and think to myself that if I had to deal with all those calls I would throw my phone in the driveway and drive back and forth over it repeatedly.

Nobody is that damn important all the time.
