Top Ten Inventions in the Last 200 Years

The Top Ten
1 The Internet

Sometimes would the world be better without the internet. Possibly people did survive without it. What's wrong with reading books, talking to people in real life, you will find board games easier than video games no I'm not on about snakes and ladders. There are many board games out there and talking to people face to face.

You wouldn't be on this computer or whatever you are on right now if there was no internet! I would probally die without internet, the only thing that would be good about no internet is my homework

It went beyond any other invention including Microprocessors and Computers. It helped getting may other inventions and ideas created and expanding beyond any wild imagintation

3 Light Bulb

Without it: can't see in the dark so there wouldn't be any interior rooms, car can't see in the dark so you wouldn't drive at night, there'd be no monitor for your computer and thus there'd be no internet for this list.

We need nightlight because they keep you safe and alarmed. They help kids and their fears and gives them reassurance of the dark.

It is amazing because it gives us light and then we don't need torches or candles.

It's a good invention, Thomas Edison you rock dude!

Morphine, Penicillin, Smallpox Vaccine, Flu Shot, Diabetes Vaccines, Dramamine, Tylenol, Advil, Motrin and millions more have helped people increase the average lifespan from 50-60 to 80-90. Why is this #11?
