    Just now there is a thread about an invention that you could easily give up. I have a question.

    Tell me an invention (or more than one if you like) that never should have come to light.

    Here are a few

    Motorcycles (friend of a friend had an accident recently)
    Cigarettes (probably killed more people than tornadoes and hurricanes combined)
    Switchblade knives

    Cigarettes - need I say more

    Chewing tobacco - My BIL lost his tongue and lower jaw due to chewing this c--p

    Switchblades - they were only made to use as weapons

    Oil Rigs - They were a disaster meant to happen

    Houses on Stilts - Also a disaster meant to happen

    Brass Knuckles - again a weapon

    Aspestos

    Street cleaners - do they really clean or just move it around?
