how about colour photography and recorded sound for film works.
Having said that I would love to go back in time, sit in a cinema with a piano player accompanying the film whilst watching a silent movie :)

i hate cell phones...no, i absolutely loathe them! hate was not strong enough. we need some new words for that. best ideas/inventions? bacon, of course. the filet knife...rolling papers...ummm...oral sex.
can't argue about these 4. Once had to help the bro clean over 1500 lbs of fish, the filet knife was worth its weight in gold...

Good invention - Shoes - modern shoes - walking shoes - mine just did over 1000 miles - in one year - on my feet - and are still good to walk -

Bad invention - TV - thinking of all that wasted time watching commercials and various propaganda - my TV crapped out on me 2 months ago (broke down) - so cancelled the cable - and haven't missed it at all -

mix of bluefin, yellow fin, dorado, yellow tail and some miscellaneous. started at 8am, finished at 1 am. Took 4 days for my hands not to smell like fish. never seen so many maggots in the trash in all my life. I don't like electric knives, full manual is the only way for me, especially when dealing with cold slippery fish. Thank G for the filet knives.

Digital Music. Starting with the CD and now i can even have my music on my wrist watch and streamed wireless to my tiny earbuds. Kind of futuristic. :cool:

Warm analogue sound is still nice but you know, you can't always and forever have that...

Yup. TG for Dexter Russell fillet knives.
My last "real" job , before I basically retired was cutting fish, commercially.
A typical busy-season summer day would be fillet or cut about 200 lbs of medium to large fluke, then maybe 100-150 lbs of codfish, about 200 lbs of whole 10-12 pound salmon then one or two 100-125 lb yellowfins,maybe a few mahi, a couple 150-200 lb swords 10 or so 30-50 lb halibut then odds and ends like imported dorade and bronzini, monkfish livers and tails, etc.
Some are relatively easy to cut, like swordfish and salmon.
Others take a bit more finesse and you really have to be aware of the fish's bone structure.
Had to be fast and efficient and not leave any meat on the rack.

Anyhow.

thats why we never let the deckhands clean our fish...they filet like hacks...leave 50 % of the meat on the bones then throw them overboard for the gulls. Never ried a dexter russel knife...sounds like they are nice.
