I was wondering, what do you guys think about inventions that are ultimately terrible for the planet?

I wouldn't say cars are a problem, because they're a very useful invention for transporting goods. It's only their misuse and overuse that makes them... near-criminal...

I think heated towel-rails, dryers, hair-dryers, and hair-straighteners are possibly the worst inventions ever.

All of these things waste massive amounts of electricity. Heating your towels barely even makes any difference to how fast they dry. (Who the hell cares anyway? How many showers do you take a day? Six? Srsly...)
Dryers simply relocate the moisture into the corners of the house, where it soon rots... <.<
And hair-dryers and straighteners damage your hair.

I mean, how much stupid do you have to cram into something to justify inventing it? O.o



Things you can talk about to get this discussion moving in some form of direction:
*Stupid inventions
*The ENVIRONMENT n'stuff
*Reasons I'm wrong about everything I say
*Carebears

No, I think you're right about what you said.

But those things ain't really useless. It has it's own purposes. Mainly, Human Satisfaction.
So, in exchange for our nature, it's our satisfaction, right?

So, yeah. You're right, and wrong. In a good way

Hair dryers are useful, specially when you live in countries where its gets to -20c (dont know what that is in fahrenheit) and you dont want your hair to literally freeze after you've washed it in the mornings and dont have time for it to dry naturally.

Personally I think most things on tv-shop channels could count as incredibly useless inventions that were only made to scam people out of their money.

Well, that's retarded....

The quite possibly most useless invention I've seen is probably the cell phone. I hate it with a passion that only Christ can match.
