The wheel, the printing press, explosives, the lever, radio, TV, computers, etc etc.......phooey. Let's hit on the REALLY important stuff. What are your most and least fav of the inventions nobody seems to remember or wants to talk about? eg for me:

BEST:

ketchup
paper towels
jeans
zippers
sneakers
ziploc baggies
"Pam" or similar spray-on cooking sprays
coffee makers
grilling forks with a temp. sensor built in
velco
duct tape

WORST:
ties
high heels (S.O. asked to put that one in)
jeans w/buttons vs zippers (??)
those #$@ little condiment packets that fast food places have
