    Hey! I have a Battery-Powered Battary charger. It can power my laptop for another 5 hours after the battery runs out.
    but, I WAS appalled when I got it for christmas.
    I was like: MOM, WTF IS THIS? I WANTED A CELL PHONE!

    you can use a calculator at night and my calculator is completely solar powered =)
    - xxkisamexx January 6, 2011, 11:30 am
    solar powered calculators all have some batteries as well just in case?
    - Icelandgirly January 6, 2011, 12:41 pm
    not mine...i kinda broke it nd took the battery out.... yea i was bored tht day
    - xxkisamexx January 6, 2011, 2:18 pm
    A solar powered calculator must have at least a capacitor in order to work else the charge from the solar panel would not be enough to make the calc work

    Wait... anti-vampire collars were a bad invention? Fair, I suppose. But why isn't child-lock car doors on here? Those are the easiest way to assure you and your kids die in a car fire. Just lock the damned door.

    The Irish invented the bagpipes as a joke and gave them to the Scottish, they still haven't found out.

    I think technology in itself is the worst invention/discovery/progression ever. People are too reliant upon it, it's destroying the Earth, the people, and society, and it just sucks. No one can bitch about it either - if it wasn't ever invented, we wouldn't miss a thing. It's only my opinion that a much simpler life would be amazing.

    so you don't want the Internet or Sharenator?

    ... you sir, are mentally handicapped. Not because of your opinion, but because of what it says. Technology is any advancement to make life or a task more convenient. You could say that sharpening a stick is "spear technology". Please be a tad bit more specific.
