The original thread is now of a quality that is far too high for me (and I must admit, I don't even try to follow anymore...)
Back to the real world and something more easy to understand :P
bad inventions:
- the wonderbra: pretending a lot, and when the facts are freed (which is the hidden goal), it can only cause disappointment and shame, AND it is very uncomfortable as well
- Hamburger :P
- piercings: what are they good for???

Hmm I am a native Hamburger, so please be careful or I will name the "Kieler Sprotte" as the worst invention ever.

I would name the TV as the worst invention.
It is perfect in getting millions of people into calm, slow, no more thinking pieces of flesh.
Close second are botox, DDT and all non-working diets,
Kind Regards

Lets just say that there are benefits above and beyond cosmetic...

With this said and done, I was (briefly) seeing a woman who had a set of rings running up her back almost like a eyelets of a corset. It looked REALLY good...

Men with leashes around?
I have bad accidents in mind under certain conditions. In fact I recently heard about a couple (both pierced at private locations) which needed medical help to seperate :ph34r:

Plastic mandolins (the cooking not the musical versions.) The real cook's quality ones are great, you can guafrette a potato at lightening speed. The plastic ones? Far less effective than a sharp knife.

What's wrong with him or her?? Isn't a person living in Hamburg called a Hamburger?

That is also a Hamburger and (s)he is of course perfect ;)
I meant that flabby piece of bread without any taste filled with a ton of mayonnaise, mustard and ketchup, a slack idea of a salad without any vitamin and an undefined thing which they call meat. Perhaps a Danish Hot Dog (not what a Chinese* would order) is worse because that Wurstel inside is also full of red colour.
*sorry!! No offense intended, that is only what they tell us here all the time...

Bingo...

This is a good choice for one of the worst (wurst?) inventions ever.
What idiot came up with the idea of putting mayonnaise on perfectly good hamburgers?

I've actually divided the US into different mayonnaise zones.
I keep careful track of those states where they consider it standard to place Mayo on the burger. i still remember the first time I got surprised with this.

Shudder...

What about these things that are supposed to stick to the wall to put your towels on. They ALWAYS fall down.

BTW TV is not a bad invention, some (most?) TV shows one would be better off without, though.

Well, I am not a big fan of mayo (e.g. burger alone will do), but I find extremely disgusting ketchup itself.... :)

Didn't JFK think something along those lines when he said "Ich bin ein Berliner".

Which of course means "I am a doughnut"
