It's the little things that truly amaze me. Simple, sophisticated, why-the-f***-didn't-I-think-of-that, understated genius. From the unparallelled ergonomics of a fork to the smooth shine of an expertly bent paperclip. These things are intuitive to the touch, easy on the eyes and-mini miracles of human ingenuity that make me appreciate those whom took the time to appreciate the more mundane parts of life. Lateral thinking, when applied to routine routines is the real mechanism that sparked civilization.
It'd be a great day for Nikola Tesla day if there weren't already so many outraged nerds on that bandwagon. I want to buy a beer for the inventor of the bottle cap! If I could, I would give a high five to the guy that invented the pause button. They even made a movie about the guy who invented intermittent windshield wipers! Oh, and I'd totally blow whomever it was that invented the zipper.
