So I was watching an interview with a 103 year old woman a few years back. She was asked what was the best invention of her lifetime. She hemmed and hawed a bit, ended up saying something like, "Oh I don't know, probably the Microwave."

She was then asked what the worst invention in her lifetime was. There was no hesitation. She answered immediately, "The Credit Card."

I happen to agree with her.
