Second worst invention: The telephone. Man I wanna beat Thomas Edison back to life and then kill him for this idea.

I'm kind of ambivalent toward the telephone. I don't like talking on them and even with my basic mobile plan, I never come close to using all my minutes.

Yet, the telephone for all its annoyances, connects the world and were it not for the telephone infrastructure, the internet would have never been impossible.

Clearly, the telephone is one of the greatest inventions, not because of the ways it's abused, but because it facilitates so well one of the most important necessities of society: communication.

By the way, Alexander Graham Bell is credited with the invention of the telephone.

Disclaimer: I am not a scientific/legal or medical expert in any field. Beware of my Contagious Memes! & watch out that you don't get cut on my Occams razor.All of this is my personal conjecture and should not be considered the absolute or most definitive state of things as they really are. Use this information at your own risk! I accept no liability if your ideology comes crashing down around you with accompanying consequences!

Explanation: IMO the two best Current inventions ever are gaffa tape and WD40 and here is why . Got something that shouldn't move but does well thats what gaffa tape is for and if you got something that doesn't move but should well then you've got your WD40. And IMO the worlds worst Current inventions are locktight for nuts and bolts and dangerous hand held laser pointers.

Personal Disclosure: I particularly liked pause4thought's reply concerning the O.P. and they were given a star.

Reality TV the worst? Come on, The Mole is pretty good. And I like Hell's Kitchen too. I can think of many inventions that are worse than reality TV.

How about automated telemarketing? That's pretty bad. And garden gnomes...pointless and yet kinda creepy. The worst invention ever is the bladder buddy.

Second worst is the auto pet petter:

The best invention of all time is something we all can use at some time:
