    So yeah, Penicillin is the saviour of lifes! I started seeing mold with different eyes because of it. It's still disgusting as hell, BUT it gets a job done!

    Also, not an invention, but a discovery I'd like to mention:

    Einstein and the discovery of the relativity of time anyone?
    I don't say I understand the Theory of relativity, hell no. But this aspect of it; the belief that time was a steady, untouchable river was not that steady and constant afterall, felt so alienating to me, I was in awe. The first time I heard and really grasped the concept of it, it changed the way I saw the world, the way I felt when looking up to the stars (and actually made me feel even more insignificant). Way to go, Einstein.

    Talking of which, I should mention the guy who created the time machine last thursday. It's really a great invention since...Oh wait, wrong timeline...Forget what I just said, or it will change your future. Hahah, no, I'm just joking around!

    Australia is pretty renowned for their inventions.

    And we've only been known to the majority of the world from just over 200 years now.

    Britain also invented the pain and suffering of about half the world.

    Take note that us Americans had a hand in that too so you couldn't take all the credit.

    We didn't invent it, we merely exacerbated it in certain areas.
