invention

After a decade of the hit show "Shark Tank" you'd think that there would be nothing left to invent. How could there possibly be anything we haven't realized we're missing? We're already the laziest generation of record, what more could there be? Apparently there are a multitude of visions and ideas just waiting to materialize. So maybe we need to stop thinking and get on it. Science and innovation waits for no man.

Redditor u/stephen_d wanted to discuss what special projects are long overdue for civilization by asking.... What should have been invented by now?

You ever have a stroke of genius where you think "Wow, how am I not a successful inventor?"

Followed shortly thereafter by the realization, "I am not a genius, I just invented pleather."

Sometimes our brains miss the very last step of logic that reminds us this thing we thought we invented already exists. In those brief, shining moments where we believe ourselves to be geniuses, we see a world of possibilities ahead of us.

Immediately after, we see a world where everybody has already thought of everything.

We all thought it was cool but now we know... technology is going to end us. SO many things are being manufactured for absolutely no reason. Half the time the the items designed to enhance our lives has drawn more ire than joy. Why does it have to be so difficult and not helpful in the end?

u/Mrclump95 wanted to discuss how technology may have gone too far for no reason by asking..... What's the most inefficient piece of modern technology?

There are so many things that have been invented over time that were meant to enlighten and enhance our lives. And many have... the car, the movies, cellphones... snuggies. But many things that have been produced that really just bring down morale and cease any reason to live. I jest, it's not that serious, but it's close. There are just a few things we can all do without and wish we could make disappear.

Redditor StonerCPA wanted everyone to admit... What would you un-invent, if you could?

Pay the piper!

Payday loans. Damn predatory pigs.

The guy that invented them publicly regrets it. Shows how one person can really make an impact.

UsernameNumberThree

A ton of waste in exchange for a modicum of convenience.

Landmines.

Living in Croatia, can confirm. To hell with landmines. When I was a kid, parents took me to the countryside once. Me and my sister were having a walk trough some field when suddenly some older man warns us to stop and get back on track. Turns out the area still wasn't 100% cleared of mines. There's still thousands of them in Croatia from the war.

Education for all....

Giphy

Student loans. There is no way the cost of an education would have spiked as much as it did without them.

Reality TV.

Gross addiction!

Cigarettes.

The five-day work week.

9/80 and 4/10 schedules make so much more sense than the traditional 5/8s. I honestly have no clue why more businesses don't offer their employees custom work schedules. It doesn't cost the company anything and allows employees the luxury of a day off (or even a 3-day weekend) every week or every 2 weeks.
