The Hills Hoist! A rotating clothesline (sort of) which dries clothes quickly outside, utilizing sun & wind! An old Australian invention. It is brilliant. (I would never use one of those internal, power-guzzling dryers, no!)

Well, the best thing since sliced bread was the electric starter.
Yes. You are so right, edgar! All the squillions of $$$$ wasted on developing those destructive weapons could have been spent on constructive endeavours ..... like eradicating world poverty. And why not do that instead?
20th century inventions?
I must tell you, I quite enjoyed David's perving. I mean, spying.
But......can you come up with something in the 20th C? I know David and Bathsheba are so 19th C but DO stick to the topic eh?

I agree, Mame. If you're too lazy to peel something without a battery prolly shouldn't be in a kitchen. I can say the same about electric toothbrushes - how much effort is it too move a toothbrush around in your mouth?
Stupid inventions would have been a great title...didn't think of it.
