Inventions Out of Time | Issue 24

Penicillin (1/5) 

Helps people live longer and prolong the misery of existence. Also, misleadingly does not contain pencils.


Sex (1.5/5)

Too much tiring effort.


The Wheel (3.5/5)

Rolls pretty well. Not much use for other things.


Boats (5/5)

Poop deck.


Long black hooded robes (4.5/5)

Great for being spooky and concealing your identity from those who would harm you. Not to be confused with long white hooded robes (0/5).


Agriculture (0.5/5)

The source of all the boring things in life; root vegetables, sheep, tractors, farmers, capitalism, fields.


War (0/5)

Responsible for some truly average films.
