So, discuss and post photos or just post whatever you feel is the best thing we as we mankind/human species has ever invented and why? 
 
As well as what things you'd like to see invented? 
 
Me personally, it's tough but I have to say the following: 
 
1. Air Conditioning 
2. Light bulbs 
3. Toilets 
4. Video Games 
5. Internet 
6. Baseball 
7. Porn 
8. Cars 
9. Art 
10. Movies  
11. Cartoons 
12. Heating 
13. Washing Machine 
14. Dryer 
15. Comics
  
Those are mine for now, post yours!

  The best thing invented in my eyes is the telescope, with one simple invention one was able to change and entire societal view and with that inspire a new generation of science. 
 
  Second would be art. 
 
  Air conditioning would be low on my list, since it releases VOCs.

How about the concept of time, clock? I suppose Math could be related to that in a way.... 
 
Also, the ability to write languages, communicate that way.

Can you really say mankind 'invented' art?
 
I would have to say our best invention isnt really an invention, at least not a singular one. But the best thing we've done so far is learn to convert energy and other resources into power.
And Internet.

Well, I guess it would depend which art...or your interpretation of art. A painting, sculpture yes I believe man invented those since it's not something apart of nature itself. A painting, sculpture, drawing etc is all man made. Is it not? 
 
Unless you're referring to something else concerning art?

VOCs?
  Volatile Organic Compounds.  They're a contributing factor to the Ozone hole, they're mostly released from air conditioning, which is a big coincidence in my eyes that one of the greatest comfort inventions contributes to global climate change.

@TheNooseIsLoose:  Well it's not my fault.  That's what my environmental teacher told me so meh.  Though air conditioning helps decrease the air quality because they're not good at catching pathogens, micro-organisms and VOCs.  I apologize for my misinformation, and I edit my initial opinion, Air Conditioning is not very good in improving the quality of indoor air and outdoor air. 
 
  Though I reiterate that VOCs help cause the Ozone Hole.

Well, there is invent/invention and then there is understanding and realization. Defining. Many things man has just come to be aware of, understand, realize but maybe not invent. We didn't invent the Moon when we named it, realized it and defined it. A lot of the best things weren't invented by us either, like communication (advanced language is tricker/fuzzier)  Agriculture allowed us to actually start taking it easy, but I would not personally count that, as an invention, more just harnessing and applying better awareness and understanding of nature. Movable type helped spread news and knowledge... ultimately I'd go with the internet. Extremely powerful equalizer. Its effects we still can't really quantify. The cheaper they get the more people can have them, the more people can learn, educate, be aware, have knowledge etc etc you'll be able to simulate traveling to other countries cultures, meeting people, get educated, and just... so many other things. Pooling resources as well. Sharing. Its... its yeah. Main distinguishing factor, is its ability to store info, share info and pool info with so many people, so fast and with such relative convenience. (as opposed to books, which are pretty cool too)
