April 9th, 2020 : Mundane Madness

Two years ago Atlas Obscura produce Mundane Madness to determine the greatest invention we under
appreciate every day. In the first round, the sweet 16, I picked all the winners but because I didn't know
what a Brannock device was and too lazy to Google it, I went with tape measure. I lucked out.
See if you agree.



Quote:
Mundane Madness is a month-long quest to anoint the most overlooked everyday objects.
When we asked for nominations for our Mundane Madness competition, we expected to be inundated with wondrous workaday inventions—and we were. Readers suggested all sorts of unsung objects, from zip ties to lighters, that make their lives a little easier.


They must have had smart voters in the second round, the great 8, because they matched my answers 100%.

Quote:
Many were discrete and fairly forgettable, the kind of stuff you keep in your junk drawer until you need it. But as the competition rounds progressed, those types of inventions lost ground to the sort of things that make the modern world possible, but are still somehow overlooked.
Once again in the third round, the final 4, they proved nimble enough to keep up with me.



Oh no, they blew in the clinch, the final, for all the marbles, the Champagne, kiss from Miss Madness on
the podium. No shit, right smack on the podium in front of everyone. wistful sigh
I adamantly disagree with the final outcome. Without paper you have no sewer or much of anything else,
things like electricity, cities, cars, planes, and internet.
Must be these whippersnappers with all their electronical gizmos, they don't understand the porn they get
on them came from paper. Just don't understand the importance of paper in bringing them the classics like
Lady Chatterley's Lover and Call Me Madam.



Oh the humanity... the shame.
