I'm not really a hippie Kumbaya kind of person, I swear, but I'd be okay if most of the ways to kill large numbers of people were never invented.

@laalo: Very good. Maybe I should of asked what mass produced invention do you wish never existed.

i'd be fine without perfume/cologne. or maybe if the bottles had a built-in 1 spritz a day limiter.

@coreyking: Sadly, WMD's still qualify.

But if we exclude tools to make killing fun and easy, I am afraid I would have to go with cell phones. They have a lot to offer, but I feel like they take more than they give.

Does social networking count?

@90mcg112: Hey, as a kind of a hippie Kumbaya kind of a person, I resemble that remark...and I agree 100%!

I'll also agree with @moondrake on the cell phones.

@hot72chev: We all love Hippies here. There should be more.

Then I'd also like to add "unlimited" text messaging

@nmchapma: That would definitely reduce the amount of texting. Nice

Digital Movies in the theaters. I miss film.

Head On! APPLY DIRECTLY TO THE FOREHEAD. I wish it were never invented so I never would have need to hear/see that commercial ever.

All TV direct marketed products. Same reason.

Cigarettes, for obvious reasons.

@coreyking: That must be why I love it here so much! I am relatively new here, and I do absolutely zero "social networking", so woot is as social as I get. I have noticed that there isn't the level of "snark" here that exists in other internet comment sections. Everyone is so nice, and I always feel welcome...yep, must be the hippies!

@bluejester: Interesting. Do Drive-In theaters still use film?

vote-for7vote-against

@hot72chev: I don't much social networking either. You should check out http://turntable.fm/music_monday_wootcom a lot of us wooters listen to music there.

@coreyking: As far as I know, the few drive-ins that exist still use film. Sadly, those appear to be going the way of the dodo as well.

Fingernail polish. Such a pain to keep these nails chip free and looking spiffy. A nice clip, file and maybe a little cuticle oil should be just fine! Now we have to shellac and manicure and pedicure and color coordinate and it is such a waste of time! Now makeup, I get. Some of us ladies really look better when we pretty up our eyes at least and it IS nice to even out the skin tone now and again. But what really does nail polish do?

@bluejester: I think they're kind of making a comeback here in Texas. I'm seeing more of them these days.

@mrsbeny: Common treatment for chiggers is putting nail polish remover on chigger bites to suffocate and kill them. I guess you could do the same with regular nail polish also.

Apple. What a horrible company with awful products.

Publisher's Clearing House (and similar outfits) and almost all things sold on infomercials.

@rayray8822: The answer to that is YES, of course. (male, actually. But I imagine there are a few females in the world that agree that it is a torture device invented by men).

@coreyking: Why would you miss the unpredictable, blurry image and the cigarette burn marker when time to change rolls? Annoying, that was.

@techkyle: But they have the best acting in them. Most of their products do stink though.

Any cell phone that does anything other than phone calls. Teenagers/young adults stare at their phone more than they do the back of their eye lids during sleeping.

Right now, the person I'm speaking with on the other end of the phone...

vote-for9vote-against

@coreyking: Not remover, that's acetone and might kill them but wouldn't suffocate them. I grew up puttng clear nail polish on them, which seals the opening and suffocates them. No chiggers here because there's no grass. But man do I miss fireflies.
