Technology, Ranked

While I am slightly disappointed that SCUMM didn't make the list of Technology, Ranked, I am perplexed how the screw gets #99 while many of the inventions from #98-#1 couldn't been made without the screw, so it seems like the screw should be higher on the list. Certainly #1 couldn't have been made without the screw as well as most of the other deadly inventions, so I blame the screw for all evil human inventions. Screw you screw.

That's a really stupid, pointlessly sensationalistic list.

Chopsticks? Really?

Reminds me of that Smarter Every Day video on "The Dawn of Precision" and how Joseph Whitworth, basically laid the foundation for any machining, by creating precise tools and measurement devices. It was also him, who introduced a standard for screw threads.

Also 3 types of guns, two kinds of TV, and n°2 is a "technology" that can be produced by nature.

I'm glad that no big data analytical tools showed up near the top in the list otherwise I'd have to question the humanity of the author.

A completely useless list - and when did corn and fire become technologies?

Some of you really need to take #14 regularly.

This is why Star Wars is better than The Empire Strikes Back.

Plus the rest of the movies don't really work as standalones.
