I imagine it must be difficult to name your inventions, it must be similar to thinking of subjects for posts and names for your kids. I assume inventors consider the functionality of their creation before giving it a name e.g. Toaster (Something you can't really do for your kids or you would have alot of people going by the name Cryer or Boob-sucker). I also think, on the premise that name is based on functionality, that some of todays inventions would have to be renamed. So here are a few inventions, I think, that based on current day functionality, should be renamed.
TV - Replacement Parent
Well you can guess why, TV seems to be raising more kids than parents because parents are too busy working. Another nominee for replacement parent is the live-in domestic worker.
Cellphone - Mxit Machine AKA F**K YOU MXIT
Ok if you're from SA, you can't honestly say you use your cellphone for anything more than you use it for Mxit. As much as I convince myself Mxit hates me, I still log on, its an addiction.
Internet - Pseudo-life
A wonder of the Internet is that it grants the tremendously unpopular to appear popular and/or cool. That is if you care about such things, and don't mind being fake to people, which most people don't seem to have a problem with.
That is as many as my fasting brain can come up with, if you can think of more, feel free to share.
Till next time in Waseem world
