Box 2910 Austin, Tsxas 78788 To state which was the greatest of mankind’s discoveries is an open invitation to a knock-down-drag-out brawl. There are those who would beat you senseless with a tire iron if you didn't agree that the wheel was the most important discovery. "Can you imagine commuting to San Antonio on foot everyday?” they argue. Well, no, I can’t. But then, I can’t imagine commuting. Just the thought of bumper-to-bumper 70-mile per hour traffic gives me a migraine. Personally, there is only one solution to America's traffic problem — open our highways only to can that are paid for. I don't debate with the pro-wheel faction, though. A tire iron across the skull is enough of a deterrent for me. Fire has its loyal supporters and I find it difficult to quarrel with them. Try eating an uncooked Sonic Burger or Big Mac. There isn't yuckier food than raw hamburger, unless you consider liver food. I don't. Liver is punishment, nor food. Another reason I don’t quibble with fire advocates is their tendency to be practical jokers. Getting a hot-foot for disagreeing with their belief is not my a* Jim Hornbeck idea of fun. Disposable diapers and pocket calculators also have vocal supporters. Today's mother could filibuster for days about the disposable diaper's contribution to the world—the end of toilet bowl hands. Even Madge and Palmolive dish soap couldn't accomplish that. But environmentalists hate disposable diapers. It appears those plastic pants have a half-life of 500 yean. Most nuclear bombs decompose quicker than that. And since asphalt has a half-life of about an hour and a half, I suggest that, instead of dumping those diapers in our landfills, we use them to fill potholes. Certainly, pocket calculators belong on "Mankind’s Top IO Discoveries” list. In the pre-pocket calculator era, I spent hours trying to balance my checkbook. Besides never balancing, I upset the ecology each time by using at least two reams Of paper and 37 pencils. God only knows how many trees died for my futile efforts. Bul now, with the aid of my handy calculator, I can come up with wrong balance much quicker. And I'm no longer a threat to Canada’s forests. Man's greatest discovery, however, has to be coffee. It's no wonder Neanderthal man couldn't speak in much more than grunts and groans — he didn’t get a daily jolt of caffeine. Without that first cup of coffee in the morning I'm not much different than a caveman. I'm sure I talk like one. I know I look like one. Recently a group of scientists, having nothing better to do, studied the effects of coffee on the heart. Their report concluded that anyone consuming five or more cups of coffee per day was an excellent prospect for a heart attack. I wish they had consulted with me. I could've told them that my heart doesn’t begin pumping until I have at LEAST five cups of coffee. And what about all the inventors and their wonderful inventions? Were it not for coffee and its glorious caffeine, they might have nodded off just when they were on the verge of something big. Of course, you could get your minimum daily requirement of caffeine by drinking tea. The scientists didn't say anything about the harmful effects of tea. (Which leads me to believe they were working for Lipton all along.) In my mind, there is no doubt that coffee was, and still is, mankind’s most significant discovery. It helped Man to walk erect instead of hunched over. It helped Man speak coherently — "Where are my socks?” instead of grunting, "Aarggh, muckatucka. Grmpliz.” You probably don’t agree with my choice, but I don’t care. At least Juan Valdez does. Looking Back Vi-jai- Htnne Hardware. asta©!lifted in 1857, is the oldest hardware store In Texas.
