don't think anyone here is before all of them.

 

Lou , I have been ticking your list off. It made me feel incredibly old. Would you believe I was from before DDT was banned? We sprayed it ever so happily on our dog because there was nothing else to combat dog's pests with. And it worked!

 

I have been thinking if Barbara Johnson ( is that ex- Lyndon Johnson by the way?) missed anything  and I think she  forgot one of the greatest inventions ( to my mind at least) , the zipper. ( feche -eclair).

I think the guy who invented it must have become a multi-millionaire, a Bill Gates of his days. For centuries  mankind only used buttons and all of  sudden there is this marvellous , ingenious invention: the zipper. I can look intrigued for hours and wonder what goes on in that little gadget to undo what was done , and to do up what was undone.
