    The printing press because it made information easier, cheaper, and faster to obtain. Second by penicillin, which is the basis for an insane amount of drugs.

    Yeah Penicillin is horribly used everywhere, I had to learn soo much about it in Biology. The bad part is I am highly allergic to it, so i have to take a lot of care.

    TV is out :P

    I'd say Printing Press. Without it I think we wouldn't have media like we do now.

    Without Electricity, Computers would fail to exist. I have to go with that. Penecillin is OVERused, I dont want to turn this into a biology fourm, but think of resistance

  9. Phone or Computer Probably phone. Else it would be really hard to be in touch with people. You'd have to send a letter and ask them if they could see you in a certain day and then wait for a letter back :P
