Top Ten Inventions in the Last 200 Years

The Top Ten

The Internet

This comment would be VERY hard to write if there were no internet.

You wouldn't be reading this without it. And sliced bread honestly isn't that impressive to be honest...

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.

Love it, need it, live it!

Automobiles

Love cars so much I die for the bugatti veyron and the ford mustang. How cool would it be to own your dream car. Cars are to die for. Ohh

We would be late for everything without them

Ain't nobody got time fo' walking

Automobiles. Proudly serving the world since 1885.

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.

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!

Actually, Joseph Swan invented the first incandescent light bulb - Ajkloth

Edison was not as great a guy, or teachers made him out to be! Great inventions, but incredibly cutthroat;( Lol, I'm not a tesla nut either, just saying

Empowered indidual, leading to increased productivity and equality

You can't access internet without this one and for mobile phones, it costs very expensive

The personal computer makes so much information easily accessible.

Refrigeration and aieconditioning put together brought about cooling and freezing. A boon to modern living and medical storage.
