    In your opinion, what do you think is/are the worst thing(s) ever created? It can be a thing or a group or something. For me it's CAPTCHA and the RIAA. Captcha is just so annoying, seriously, just for Ticketmaster I have to type some random crap for every request I do. And don't even get me started on the RIAA. I'll just keep it at, they limit freedom.

    Microsoft.

    EDIT: To expand on that, specifically Windows Vista.

    Personally, I'd vote for "mass tourism" as the worst ever.

    But truth be told there are far worse.

    The sound does set my teeth on edge… but it has its uses. ;)

    Speechless.
    So now you don't even have to get off of your fat butt to "exercise".

    The personal computer. Computers aren't all bad. For commercial and industrial and special-interest purposes they have benefited our lives greatly. But personal computers have just made our personal lives more fast-paced, technology-dependent and most of all, unhealthy.

    That is too hilarious. :p

    Agreed. I try to avoid velcro now. There's nothing better than being at a meeting or something, and you hear a horrible velcro sound. I'm never going to buy a bag of any sort with velcro, regardless of how nice it looks otherwise.

    What I want to post would get this thread moved to the PRSI forum, so I'll just nominate "lawyers" instead. :p

    Well, since Vista is a poorly made copycat known to some as Windows ME (Mistake Edition) version 2, it's not quite an "invention". =p

    Vista has been declared by a prominent publication as one of the top ten WORST consumer products of all time, however.

    I do have to agree that Microsoft is the worst invention. Their motto should be: Holding technology back with bugs and poor usability, or Yesterday's technology, promised to be delivered poorly a few years from tomorrow.

    Oops, wrong thread. I think you were looking for the "Best Invention" thread.
