What is the worst invention in you opinion?

I say Mobile Phone Calling Cards. They piss me off the whole time. If you call someone and they tell you that they will call back, and then they never call back. Then later when you call them again, they tell you they couldn't call you because they didnt have any money on their handy!!!!

Same thing with SMSs. It pisses me off every time somebody doesn't answer because they didn't have any money on the card!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The infomercial. They started off as entertaining. Now, I want to kill the masses chanting 'set it and forget it' and spouting off about how they made millions of dollars from their tiny, rat-infested studio apartment. Working late sucks. Nothing on but news and infomercials.

The answering machine/voice mail. I get all these people calling me but they never leave a messege. I am not the Yellow Pages. I don't know everyone's number!

GO CANUCKS!!

Nuclear weapons - sure, the first two weapons served their purpose. After that, it just became an insane race to see who would be able to destroy the world faster than the other country.

Red traffic lights.

Those primitive TV sets which are unable to automatically mute and black-out commercials.

The Swiss-German language - especially as spoken in Ober Wallis.

Happy landing, Preben Norholm



Always keep your number of landings equal to your number of take-offs, Preben Norholm

    Television = The first step in the creation of isolated mankind.

    Playstations/X-box etc. = The second step, especially for kids (I foresee a social disaster for the next generation).

    Silicon boobs = Better small and real, than those ugly balloons.

    French cars = doesn't need any explanation.



    BTW: Great topic!




    Every landing is a controlled crash
