are we the only animal on the planet that's not allowed to kill things? why don't you give the sharks a hard time, their behavior is absolutely ridiculous. Or, how about ripping into snakes or posinous spiders. humans really need a break.

1) Wrist watches

-Someone has most likely gotten thier watch caught on something that lead to thier untimely death

2) Cuckoo Clocks

-I'd wager someone has had a heartattack by those nansty little things....scared the hell out of me as a child

3) Purified Water

-I gaurentee someone has drowned in it.

4) Calculators

- this ones many people using calculators to figure out thier broke and take thier own lives have happened.

5) Paper

-Many people have died in accidents at plants that make paper.

6) Fax Machines

-I wonder how many orders have gone through fax machines that ended peoples lives.

I could go on and on, but as a pervious poster has said the intent of this thread seems rather pointless. You could look and anything that has ever been created the has cause a death or mamed someone either on purpose or by total and freak accidents.

Instead of always looking at the horrible side of things how about looking at things that have been created that have been used for good, either on purpose or by accident

Bread as OP suggests - Millions dare not billion of lives on this earth since it's creation have been saved from starvation because of bread.

Shoes - Has saved many a toe from being stubbed!!

Clothes - Has saved many from freeing to death as well as shielding unsuspecting viewer from horrible sights i'd bet.

I could go on and on.

My trifle over something like this is pointless. Everything kills or can cause death by accident. Nothing is perfect. Humans are not perfect so by no means can we create something perfect. It's just the way things are.

There is nothing that humans have made that has not killed
either accidentally or on purpose.

Life is the one thing that nobody gets out of alive.
unless you happen to be immortal then you do not get out at all.

1.) James bond's wrist watch has a lazer on it which kills.
2.) A cuckoo clock could give somebody a heart attack and prob has. unless you can prove otherwise.
3.) Purified water can be mixed with harmful chemicals to poison somebody and without the delivery through water would not be as effective.
4.) We used a calculator to crunch numbers for the Atom bomb. that killed people.
6.) Fax a big your fired to some fat guy in office who then croaks.
5.) You can give somebody a thousand or more paper cuts and kill them that way. Also making paper involves killing trees which reduces the amount of oxygen producers in this world.
7.) Somebody scans over to somebody else the address of somebody and a picture of them, that person in turn kills them because of the info provided.
8.) Zip drives killed the floppy disk. enough said.
9.) What is a syquest drive?
10.) I'm sure some obsessed fan died from watching the Simpsons over and over again.

The synthetic element Roentgenium Atomic no. 111, half life of ten minutes...

No confirmed deaths in its 10 min life time.

I got it.
Pure oxygen.
Any takers on how this killed anyone?
I spent hours thinking of it.
And im not saying compressed, just pure oxygen, with all other gasses removed.
Damn, nevermind.
I just did myself in.
Back to the drawing board....

Everything we have created, has somehow, indirectly or directly, led to somethings death.

To be fair every time you move you kill micro organisms so it is imposible to make or do anything without hurting or killing something. In the course of making something you kill thousands of skin cells. You kill yeast cooking the bread before it can even choke someone. So nothing.

reply to post by guinnessford

The Apollo 1 fire was caused due to a spark in a 100% oxygen environment.

Don't get the point of this thread. The same works that inspire the greatest of us can cause also bring out the worst in a person.

By the same loose qualifications you've put forth here, nature itself is little different.

yeah, you can stand there and kill brain cells and blood cells. So you cant even do nothing without something dead.

I tell you what though, death doesnt even exist. Infact, prove to me that things die.
