Greatest Inventions?

I have just been reading about the 100 greatest inventions and now i'm confused.
(again. seriously, it doesn't take much to confuse me)

Here is the Top Ten.

1, Wheel
2, Aeroplane
3, Lightbulb
4, Internet
5, PC
6, Telephone
7, Penicillin
8, iPhone
9, Flushing Toilet
10, Combustion Engine.

hmmmmmm, seems a bit Male Orientated to me. iPod before flushing toilet? I rest my case.

for gods sake Hair straighteners were number 34!!!

Not in my house they aren't. I'd swap my washing machine (12) for straighteners any day. (In fact, i think i did)

Make-up was number 66!!! I DON'T think so. Sky+ was number 53!!

Yet another example of how male dominated the list is.

Perhaps a womans point of view is needed here.

My 10 greatest Inventions.

1, Make Up,
2, Take aways
3, Spas
4, babysitters
5, Hair straighteners
6, Credit cards
7, Afternoon naps
8, Spanx
9, Nurofen
10, Online Shopping
