Deda Tech: Best Idea Since Sliced Bread (26) RE: Tech: Best Idea Since Sliced Bread 30 Nov 05


I think the packing trunks mentioned were called "steamer trunks."

And after "sliced bread", the next most common is "best thing since zippers." So when were zipper invented?

Toilet paper is actually a fairly recent invention, late 1800s I think. The ancient Romans used a sponge on a stick -- not to get too gross here.
