Most Important Invention

January 29th, 2003 · No Comments

Time for a few more smiles. Writes CNN:

In a nation obsessed with sparkling teeth and minty-fresh breath, the lowly toothbrush is the king of inventions.

So say the findings of a new survey released Wednesday by the Lemelson-MIT Invention Index at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which asked which of five inventions Americans could not live without. The toothbrush emerged the undisputed champ, beating out the car, the personal computer, the cell phone and the microwave — in that order — as the most prized innovation.

“It makes a lot of sense,” said American Dental Association spokesman Dr. Richard Price. “Your teeth are always with you. … You can always update your car or a computer, but you just can’t update teeth.”

Reminds me…I think I better go visit a dentist soon. Been a few years. Can’t forgot to have them teeth crashing on me…
