Writer's Block: The Best Invention

What would you consider to be the single greatest invention in the history of the world? Why?


I'd have to say "writing", because the written word is what allows us to communicate with people far away (via letters, the internet, books, magazines...) It even allows us to communicate with people in the far future.

Because of the written word, we can get messages from the greatest minds that have ever existed, from Aesop to Shakespeare, from Homer to Martin Luther King, Jr.
