the little white lie. You know the one you use when you want to spare someones feelings? Like when your wife asks if she looks fat in those jeans. You don't really tell her she does, right?

Brilliant Savak. I wish I could master the art of the white lie Most of the time I tell it as how I see it. White lies are an art, but then, the do I look fat in those jeans...... is a no brainer lol. Us males know better than to fall for that ones these days. But do not learn enough Haircuts is another important one, I thought I was being honest when I said I like your hair when it is long on the day she got it cut short Lesson learned!

Oh, I think we could live just fine without phones. After all before they were invented mankind got along just fine. Of course phones sure have helped out with communication.

Ummm... I don't agree with God as human invention! :/ God created humans and all things, and so all the human inventions is created by God, indirectly!

As far as I know the greatest invention in human history is Power or more commonly called Electricity. Its the basis for all other inventions that we are seeing right now in today's world.

I agree with Madu , without power we can't reach this computer and gadget age. All inventions depended in the power supply. Think of an invention which did not use power for its making and for its functioning . So we must be very grateful to the inventor of electricity.

Hello, moneylots87. I think that the greatest invention was the sock/shoe combo. I am so greatful for socks/shoes. I am sure that if it wasn't for socks/shoes, we would have more sore feet. Thank you sock/shoe inventor. :) :)

I am not sure if this comes under as an invention, but i would say Fire is the greatest human intervention. It is little difficult to connect the dots, but i think Fire gives us a great perception about energy and all the ways we can make use of energy.

Yea, sure someone long and long time ago in prehistoric era, invented it, and Iam sure it would be because of natural causes, like lightning struck the tree and the tree got burn, or something like that!

Yes computer, is really a useful stuff, without it, life would be harder, you need to operate something always with human manual.

Hi, It is very difficult to mention the greatest invention because every invention has important role in our life. But I think Electricity is the great invention. Now a days we all are machine dependent and almost all machines need electricity. Our computer is also dependent on electricity and we are now computer addicted.

Well this is a tricky question, since a lot of the things i would say are the greatest inventions actually require other things in order to work. i.e. electricity needs a generator, the generator needs a steam turbine, the steam engine needs fire :) So i would probably say the fire or the wheel considering they are the basis to everything else mankind has done ever since.. Anyway without all this historical thinking, i would say the steam engine, it finally made people capablo of being free of hard manual labour.
