I'm going to have to be a nerd and say that it was going to the moon.

And before you say Killed by Death volume 2 or Milo and Otis or whatever, I would also say that the invention of art in general comes in at a very close second.

Posted: Mar 3, 2009 9:25 am
 
Yes, genius.
But most people call those round things with a spoke: wheels.

Not if they have knobby, off-road tires.

I'd say you got those backwards but whuddooeyeknow....

The development of art pretty much preceded and led to the development of language and everything else would follow methinks.

"The invention of bread and beer has been argued to be responsible for humanity's ability to develop technology and build civilization."

I don't know that Sheboygan really exists much-less anything else I haven't seen!
Posted: Mar 3, 2009 11:46 am
 
Right, but if there was a group of people out there telling you that Sheboygan DOESN'T exist, and backing that statement up with some scenarios about how Sheboygan COULD be faked, and using some weak arguements to try and tell you that it is IMPOSSIBLE for Sheboygan to exist, wouldn't you think those people were kinda dumb?

Probably not the only one, but quite possibly the only one on the Goner Board. There's no shame in it though.
Posted: Mar 3, 2009 4:34 pm
 
i think its probable that man did land on the moon, but its doubtful that it was done in the way it was publicized. people probably wouldnt have been so supportive if they realized any astronaut sent through the van allen radiation belts would come back with a lethal dose of radiation poisoning, if they made it back alive at all. so they made a happy production for the world to see through the media, and the real mission was, and remains, top secret.
Posted: Mar 3, 2009 5:40 pm
 
Not Sheboygan, but Sheboygan brats with kraut & grilled onions. and a baseball game in front of them.

Slavery, duh. Do you think any of the 7 man-made wonders of the world would have been possible if the contractors paid a livable wage?

Getting other people to do you shit for you is number 1.

Pussy is the only thing that allows us, as a people, to continue to accomplish anything lasting, as we are finite beings. Slavery does get things done, tho.....

the invention of the Nerd.
Posted: Mar 4, 2009 1:58 am
 
It's kind of a silly question. As we constantly evolve as a species everything seems to fall into place. Every good thing that we do is a result of something before it. You can't have the invention of the wheel without the invention of tools. So really the greatest thing that we did was to develop cognitive thought. Perhaps something before that I failed biology.

A more real answer to me would be the printing press.
