That is okay I think they are great inventions. Simple and practical. Changed the world. Go Chinese inventors...haha
Let's go way back and maybe talk technologies...like knapped flint tools. This allowed human brain to grow larger and evolve to make even more inventions. Then how about farming/agriculture? Sewing and clothes? Medicene? Music? Art? The camera obscura?
It is not the inventions that are remarkable really...it is the human being that is remarkable.
And lest we forget how about nunchukas??? Whaaa *Bruce Lee* hahaha
"Bertha packed up one of her husband’s cars, the recently completed Patent-Motorwagen No. 3, and with her two teenage sons in tow set out to visit her mother in Pforzheim. She didn’t tell Karl beforehand, but instead left him a letter informing him of her plans.
The Benzes hit the road— which in many places turned out to be rocky, dusty and unpaved—with Bertha acting as both driver and automobile mechanic along the way. When she ran low on fuel, she sought out a local pharmacy that sold ligroin, the petroleum solvent used to run Karl Benz’s cars. She made an emergency repair to the car’s ignition with her garter. When the fuel line became clogged part of the way through their journey, Bertha was able to clear it using nothing more than her hairpin. Bertha is even credited with devising the world’s first pair of brake pads: when the car’s worn-down, wooden brakes began to fail, she asked a local shoemaker to install leather soles instead."
