    what's the best invention as of now?

    i like indoor plumbing and a good toilet. i'd have hated to have to go outside everytime i needed to wiz.

    but electricity is pretty much amazing as well.

    I'd have to put fire in first place, followed by the spear. With these two things our ancestors were able to defend themselves from predators, hunt big game, stay up past sunset and get some useful work done by firelight, and stave off disease, parasites, and cold.

    The new world had a thriving culture before the white men came, making no practical use of the wheel at all...

    Many great answers already, but I'd say electricity.

    But with the wheel, we ran over their old culture, proving yet again that round things are superior.
