I am going to answer this question at a very low level. The best discovery was the use of elecricity to generate energy. The best invention in my opion is the electric light bulb and 70 years later the transistor. Then of course comes the smallesh (compared to valves) computer.

The best more recent invention is TCP/IP and Arpranet which has sence become the internet. The internet would probably not have taken off though without the world wide web. For this reason I would say the www is the best high end invention. Thanks Tim Burner's Lee.
Thank you, I got the Electricity bit right.

Lol, I was scared to say transistor because then I'd look like the only person to have thought properly about this thread.

But Lego yeah, you can't forget Lego.

Hehe yes but they don't work without electricity or heating elements. I guess it all goes back to Micheal Farraday.

Only our first introduction to it. Never really got started until about 17, perhaps a bit sooner, but only a month or two.

Chopsticks. Without them, we would be eating chips and drinking soup with our toes.
