    useless inventions

    Last night I was watching some TV and all of a sudden some commercials introducing some type of invention came out so I was thinking anyone here ever see an invention and say "how liaise are we to need one of those tings"

    For me that invention is the one used to crack an egg (I'm not sure what's the name) and the other one is the one used to make brownies (still don’t know the name)

    back in the 30's they made this x-ray machine so you could see your feet in your shoes. It was a really stupid idea and on top of it it killed 90% of the ppl that used it because of radiation exposure.

    Well it was a stupid invention, but not a useless one.
    You see, they had no idea the effects of radiation - so you can't fully blame them.

    It did have a use however, but the unseen risks were beyond the usefulness.

    That wouldn't matter if you don't care for complete-snugged shoes.
    The device was useful for specially-tailored shoes.
    Trust me, an x-ray would be rather convenient for shoe makers. Not everyone's foot measures the same (there's just a standardized measurement), and not everyone's foot reacts the same way - so an x-ray was rather useful.
    Not exactly THE MOST USEFUL THING EVAR, but it was a convenience.

    Useless would mean it would have no use whatsoever. Pushin' it a bit to say that that device was useless.

    Re: useless inventions

    every invention has one use or another, so no invention can trually be useless. You just have to find a person who would use it ^_^ (at least someone would want it, and thus it would not useless) (ex. you would find a x-ray device useless but a shoe-maker would not. So could you trually call it useless?)
    death and life are one and the same
