The automobile is #6 on the list.Rasputin wrote: ↑Tue May 30, 2017 7:52 pmThere are not many genuinely meaningful things that have been invented recently enough for us to know whodunnit, or even argue about it, so I think it's a bit of a false question really. I could do without cars, but then in a world without motorised transport I might be labouring in a field, so I guess motorised transport would be on my list - but do we equate that with the invention of the car, or should it be the steam train, the steam ship... Everything is connected to everything else. Once you have the idea of a motor, the car is inevitable, and the Greeks figured out that steam power was possible.
I think the list will say more about the US Librarian of Congress than anything else.
