Best Inventions

April 6th, 2007 at 04:30pm

Good afternoon Glenn,

It's wonderful to hear you on the wireless in Canberra again, a very pleasant way to spend a Good Friday afternoon.

When you asked about the best inventions of all time, I instantly thought of the toilet. There have been a lot of good inventions, but the toilet, in its many forms, is an essential part of life, and without it and indoor plumbing and the sewer network, we could hardly have built the cities that we live in…and high-rise buildings wouldn't be at all practical.

Happy Easter!

    I think the best invention would have to be creamy potato bakes.

    Canned pinapples.

    I thought you’d surely have voted for the radio.

    Radio is certainly a good and important invention, but I think the advent of toilets and the sewer network is just a bit more important to our civilisation.
