On a more serious note, I'd go for the airplane. (It'll permit me to go spend two weeks in Corsica in August) ;-D

I would have to say the automobile. Without cars we would live in a world the size of one decent day's walk - not much more than ten miles in diameter. You'd have to work, go to school and do all of your shopping, entertainment and whatnot within your local area. The world opened up once the car was invented. ;-D

How about the alphabet/written word? It's pretty hard to imagine having anything we have today without someone somewhere recording it via writing it down.

I'd have to go with the internet.

Perhaps the Grill as a close second. (Charcoal of course) ;-D

Shoes are nice.
Plastic is good.
Concrete, the automobile, telephone...

I don't think electricity and fire can really be considered 'inventions'. More like 'discoveries'.

I think you would get a better presentation if you used the 'computer' rather than the 'internet'. With the computer, you could talk about everything from business use to radio astronomy to video games, and have the internet in there.

Shoes. Seriously, life would suck without shoes.
