You might find this interesting by numbering your paper from 1-10 (unlike Letterman's 10 - 1). LOL!!

This thread was opened on public radio in 2001.

My #1 guess was the WWW which turned out to be #4. ((;

Send in your list, please; Mabye?! LOL! TY!

Interesting thought, though. What are your other nine guesses, perhaps?

(((((((((( Okie guys, we're talking about the 20th century = 1900's. We're also talking about all the inventions that were siginifant enough to get in the top ten list.

You ain't gonna believe what was #1 is...........remember, #4 is the WWW. Perhaps it was # 3.....but it was not #1.

Refrigeration dates back to 1748! LOL! Yes, 1748. LOL!!

Keep on trying........what would cause #4, the WWW to NOT be #1, (which was my guess for #1)? This a clue to you.

(((((((((( Body hug ))))))))

((((((( I forget what they were at the time, and I can't writ it now as I know some of them, but it might have been:

#1 WWW (This ended up being #3 or 4?)
#2 Interstate highways
#3 Better primary roads for vehicles
#4 Rest stops! Rural electrification was my choice.
#5 Airconditioning
#6 YARN (modern-day)...lol!! Just kidding!
#7 International air flights (Now I can get lost overseas! LOL!
#8 Water supply (potable) and distribution
#9 Computers
#10 Telephones......

I did get some right, too but out of order but in the top ten.
