The telephone or phone is a telecommunications device that transmits speech by means of electric signals. Generally attributed to the inventor Alexander Graham Bell, the first was built in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1876. However, an Italian inventor Antonio Meucci is said to have invented the device in 1849, and in September 2001, Meucci was officially credited by the US Congress with the invention of the telephone, instead of Alexander Graham Bell. but i think it was Nikola Tesla who invented the first cordless telephone.
my vote to Terry Fox
if it were up to David Suzuki we would all be living in the stone age, and i dont mean smoken pot… I mean living in caves and planting our own food, living of the earth. I for one love technolagy and what it can do for us. but Im not about to go save a tree. or a seal even though they are so cute. Its in our nature to produce like rabbits and gobble up all the world resources. We kill off all living things that are inferior to us. we cant help it, its in our nature. l
yep, my vote is for David Suzuki. its easy to paint him as a tree-hugging hippie longhair, but this guy has a big input in the most influential book i’ve ever read (The Tao of Physics by Fritjof Capra). I truly believe that if the world goes in the right direction, he will be looked on as a genius, years ahead of his time in terms of his view of the world, nature, and the human place in it.
definitely there are some other people in there with great achievements, terry fox, the father of healthcare guy, trudeau i like just for being so solid in terms of his dealing with the americans, but i think the whole idea of the ‘greatest canadian’ is pretty cheesy idea. why dont we make them sing and they can all compete for marrying a million bears or something.
wayne gretzky dosent even live in canada anymore. he’s also a complete corporate shill, tylenol, ford, pepsi, and thats just what i can remember offhand. sure the money is going to charity but anyone who advertises is tainted by that most evil of businesses.
you just know that he’s gonna pull an ‘october surprise’ and overthrow gary bettman and win the thing with a landslide though…
of course its not ok, but realy we cant help our selfes we just Crawled out of the primordial soup or ooze and are still trying to find our place of this plannet. David would love this plannet to go back a few thousand years in the past when life was simple. its too late, we are hanging on by a thread.
Again it does not matter about what is right or wrong as we cant change it. its set in motion. I ask you this do you think in 5 years when oil prices are reaching 150.00 american a barrel will we be driving hybrid cars…lol…nope, we will still be driving our SUV’s. We are in trouble but the people who got us in to trouble will never do anything to resolve it, mark my words. http://www.netoriginals.com/uss/images/resources/bomb.jpg
