The greatest inventions of all time
BY MERRITT ANDERSON ON NOVEMBER 25, 2014
Have you ever looked at something and thought “Wow, this object is simply amazing! How could I possibly live without this?” This is a constant thought that flashes through my mind on an everyday basis. So, I would just love to enlighten you all on some of the inventions that seriously changed my life, and I know seriously changed yours.
The spork: the simplest yet most amazing invention of all time. Ever have trouble choosing between a spoon and fork? Of course you have. The spork eliminates this controversy. Say you are eating pasta...you need the spoon for the sauce, but the fork to poke the noodles. How does one experience the best of both worlds? Why, a spork of course!
Ever run into a situation where you need close-toed shoes that are also water-proof?! Duh! Well guess what?! Crocs were invented. The single most amazing shoe that has ever made it on the market. I don’t know about you, but I wore my Crocs every single day at the beach as a child. They are perfect for any occasion, and from what I hear Crocs are slowly but surely working their way back “in.”
So, you find yourself wanting to look fashionable, but you don’t want to try too hard. No worries, we have a solution: SILLY BANDZ! A simple and cheap way to rock that stacked bracelet trend. Not only are they colorful bracelets, but they double as super cool shapes!
Next time you turn in a paper, I suggest you use a paper clip. Why use a stapler when you have a beautiful piece of bent up metal that you could conjoin your papers with? This invention has an intricate design that only those who truly appreciate paper binding will understand.
Earrings are also a wonderful thing. This is yet another way to accessorize just like silly bandz. All you have to do is shove a needle through your ear and leave it there forever!! But no worries, it will probably only hurt for the first few months!
Artificial plants are so amazing. How could you live without a fake tree in your living room? It’s simple, ya couldn’t. The abstract look of the leaves does just the job of relaxing your mind and fooling you into thinking you are at one with nature when in reality you are far from it and staring at a computer screen. You can find about any plant your heart desires in a faux version at your local Lowes.
Adventure on, humans. Find new creations, make new creations, use new creations.
