When you grab a pencil today to make a few notes in your English textbook or work on your Grammar exercises, try to imagine a time when people knew nothing of such a thing as a pencil.... When a buttonhole on your shirt was non-existent.... When you had to use bread to erase what you have written on a piece of paper... Life has definitely gone forward, and we no longer consider these things as "inventions." Suzi has written an interesting post on such trivia. It's a challenging read, but very entertaining and educational. Feel free to leave your comments. To read, simply click here.
