What do you do with the thong, Jimmy? :)
For me there are a lot of good things worth to be mentioned:
- electric light
- central heating
- continental quilt and feather pillow
- anti aging cream (although I fear it doesn't really help, but hope dies last of all...)
- PC and internet
- supermarkets
- wheel --> railway and cars
- redwine (occasionally...)
- shoes

I like it cosy and comfortable :lol:

I want to say Printing Press but it relies on so many other inventions to be invented in the first place. That is true of all inventions though except the most basic. So I will go with music.

I feel a little guilty. I've been wondering what you look like in your hydraulic thong.
