    I was gonna say car alarms. But yeah, truck nutz is pretty high on the list, too.

    Has anyone ever ran to go see what made a car alarm go off? I'm guessing no.

    I'll have to say the 8-track tape.

    A device intended as a method of storage/playback for recordings that stops the in the middle of a tune to switch tracks and continue the tune. It's moronic.

    Invented by engineers and promoted by corporate types that were not actual consumers of music.

    If one person in the bunch had been someone that truly loved music as "the art with which one decorates their soul," they would've called an all-stop to address the stop/start nature of how playback occurs. But that never happened.

    Can you even rightfully call truck nutz an invention? Those are pretty low standards for calling something an invention. If I brush my hair in the opposite direction tomorrow morning I'm gonna call that an 'invention'. I'll easily have several hundred inventions by the end of the week!

    Cell phones. I hate the fact that the whole world assumes I am available at any moment and that I will call them right back. I need more space between me and other people.

    Hip hop.

    Car/truck stereo systems that boom...hip hop.

    Leaf blowers.

    Cell phones (until I need one, of course).

    Various movements social and ---itical that shan't be mentioned by name, but work all too well to pile up victims' skulls.

    Nuclear weapons.

    Shopping malls.

    Styles of the 1970s.

    I liked bell-bottoms, desert boots, wide leather belts with those 2 brass rings to loop strap through!

    And wide leather/spiky watch straps for a $20 Timex!
