About This Quiz
Do you ever think about where stuff comes from? Not like, from stores or factories, but where the ideas came from. Someone had to think of and execute on the idea for everything you use and touch that isn't straight from nature. Crazy, right? Some useful things were invented in the 1980s, and some things are being invented as you read this, but a lot of everyday items were invented in ancient times. Some of the earliest inventions were beds, complete with wooden pillows. Thank goodness those have gotten some upgrades! Tools, wheels and even marathons are just more examples of ancient inventions.
But which invention do you think you would have come up with? Maybe there's something you're particularly interested in that you would have turned into an actual object or service. They say the best inventions are those that solve some kind of problem or provide a service to people that would make their lives easier. What's the first thing that comes to mind? It's okay if you can't think of anything.
This quiz will tell you all you need to know about which ancient invention you would have come up with. Don't believe us? Take the quiz now!
If you had the ability to travel back in time and invent something you know already exists, would you?
That sounds like a lot of work.
That's playing with fire.
I'd love the credit.
I hear if you time travel you're not supposed to change anything.
