In this thread name as many things as you can think of that you hope never gets invented.

Personally I'm really against the pimple shaver, piano skateboard, laser back scratcher, diamond punching bag, bladed unicycle, and a glass flail.

Can we name things that have already been invented that we wish never had been?

Drill-fork! It's a drill-fork, it drills and forks! Mostly fork.

That and the ever handy knife-wrench. Safe for kids, and practical! *stab*

Dr. Pepper 2. Sequels and spin-offs to drinks just aren't very good most of the time, and I want my favorite drink to remain as it is. <3

The Sprite Remix (or whatever it was) tasted great! Like Skittles O:

...but a Dr. Pepper 2 would totally suck x.x

I guess you could as long as you list something that you don't want invented.

<[SA]HatfulOfHollow> i'm going to become rich and famous after i invent a device that allows you to stab people in the face over the internet
Find a way to hide and transfer such a stabbing ability through MP3s or pictures... BAM! People will drop like flies.

The drive thru

The Bluetooth phone earpiece

Text messaging

Those hot dogs sold already in their buns

Come to think of it, all hot dogs

The Mustang

The voice activated phone answering system that many companies make you go through now just to talk to a person. If I ever meet the guy who invented that, he shall surely die a slow and painful death.

The Blu-Ray. Come on. We all know HD-DVD will win this format war. The fact that Blu-Ray exists is only hindering technology. I'd get into why, but that's a whole nother thread.

________

And now something that doesn't exist that I hope is never invented

Fake human flesh. They were thinking about making a meat or meat substitute that tastes like human flesh. It was for people who wanted to know what it was like to eat people without actually eating people. I don't want this to be invented. The reason is, what if you like it? What if the company goes out of business? What if you really, really liked it?

What if you needed it for a skingraft

I like hot dogs, mustangs, and would like a piano skateboard :(

I hope they don't invent a new kind of mosquito.

A teleportation device in which your head could be switched with another organism's if they enter the other part of the device.

I agree with this post.

Any teleportation into space occupied by another being will cause a telefrag, nothing worse.

I hope nobody ever invents organic kitchen implements. Can you imagine a living cheese grater? D:

I'm not sure if that's a joke or if you misunderstood me. It's hard to tell what with this forum being all text and whatnot.

Well, we DO have Italics. Thanks to whoever invented that.

You can't tell if that was sarcasm can you? :cool:

No, Sagensyg. Not at all. That's not any less ambiguous than what Rubah said.

EDIT: Somehow, I posted this and I had a hard time remembering whether or not what I said was sarcasm. Now I'm having a hard time if the previous sentence in edit was also sarcasm. Damn. See how this text works?

Basically I hope that all of those tired Hollywood clichés of apocalyptic futures (i.e. the aftermath of mass nuclear warfare, mass alien invasions, sterile though-controlling dictatorships, and/or media-numbed populations) never actually come to be.

Also, I sort of wish computers and the Internet hadn't been invented, yet at the very same time love them both dearly. It's hard to explain - part of me loves certain aspects of computers, for example this very community, but I don't like the probabilities of where it all will lead. Somehow I think that in the future, there will be little room for such websites, as the Internet is bogged down by marketing just like TV and movies are now, even though they weren't once. These may well be the glory days of the Internet that just won't last.
