To make our lives easier and more comfortable, people have always come up with new inventions and most of them have been really useful, like cutlery or medicine to treat illnesses that were once incurable. But there are inventions that benefit humans less and may even be dangerous.

We all probably have looked at something, couldn’t understand the purpose of it and thought that it was unnecessary to invent it. Redditor numbnerve wanted to know what people think is the invention we would be better off without and over 22k people joined the discussion with some serious answers.

Don’t forget to upvote the redditors’ answers you agree with the most and if there is something you think belongs in this list and wasn’t mentioned, leave it in the comments!

50 Inventions People In This Online Group Think Shouldn’t Have Seen The Light Of DayLandmines. I’ll tell you why:

They render large tracts of land completely unusable

They are expensive and difficult to remove safely because there is seldom documentation of where they are placed

They are cheap, plentiful, easy to place, and deadly

They kill/maim livestock and wild animals

They kill/maim innocent people decades after conflicts have ended. Many times the victims are children because they can’t read or don’t understand warning signs
