Why Sliced Bread?

Sliced bread

Most of us have heard the saying, “That’s the best thing since sliced bread!” What do you think is actually the best thing since sliced bread?

Interesting daily prompt, but I will need more information before I can answer this.

Such as when was the first loaf automatically sliced, because whatever I decide is the best thing since sliced bread it can’t be before then.

Oh, well there you go. According to Wikipedia, the source for all spurious knowledge, the first loaf of sliced bread was sold in 1928

So, what is the best thing since sliced bread? Well, if you set your sights as sliced bread being the pinnacle of achievement then the answer can be pretty much anything else that exists, bar unsliced bread as long as it was after 1928. This annoyingly means that things like, pizza, electricity , computers, the car, although, I guess these can be broken down further. The first car may have been before 1928 but the first Pontiac Firebird was in 1967, so maybe that should be allowed.

With that in mind, there’s no one thing that I can narrow the list down to, so instead here are my top ten, best things since sliced bread (i.e. since 1928). Although, I guess technically this is just a list of things invented after 1928 that I think are kinda cool and list-worthy, but I’m starting to get a head-ache. So for own sake I’m just going to go with these.

  1. Recordable TV
  2. The Internet
  3. Space Travel
  4. Heart Bypass Surgery
  5. Firefly
  6. Inside Toilets
  7. Redundancy Money
  8. Recycling
  9. Better Human Rights record
  10. Strawberry and chilli relish

Interesting list, in no order of course but I stand by them.
