Throughout the years, man has developed and created many inventions. Many of these ideas have helped us all in one way or another, either by making life more easier or ways of doing certain things a little more faster. I thought it might be fun to see what everybody thinks the greatest invention that mankind has ever developed. It can be anything, from the electric can opener, television remote, or boot jack, to power steering, air conditioning, or microwaves. It can only be one thing, so take some time to think about, and then let us know what it is.

 

Mine? I think the snooze button on my alarm clock is fantastic! I'm sure you all will come up with better things, but for now, that's my favorite. 

 

Have fun!  :thumbs:

The front door. It brings me joy with everyone that passes through it. Some when they enter, others when they leave.
