This and every Monday, the Bweinh!tributors, having convened in secret for hours of reasoned debate and consideration, will issue a brief and binding ruling on an issue of great societal import.

This week’s question — What is the most useful tool?

Connie delivers the ruling of the Council, joined by MC-B, Josh, Djere, Mike, and Steve:



David offers this opinion, joined by Job:

The lever…give me a place to stand and I will move the world.


Tom offers this opinion:

The opposable thumb. Without it any other tools are so many footrests and paperweights.


Chloe offers this opinion:

A length of rope, because it can be used to make many necessities, including pulleys and bridges, and assist in hunting and self-defense.


Next week: What is the worst form of music?

    I would have considered some of the other choices but I don’t keep fire or thumbs in my tool box.

    I’m going to have to go with the pneumatic drill. I mean, sure, the opposable thumb is the basis of out interaction with objects, and fire is one of the most important technological advances in the history of man, but a pneumatic drill can poke holes in things, and that’s just kinda neat.

    On a more serious note, I’d really have to go with the printing press, or perhaps the modern Word Processor/printer combination. Between words and warmth, there’s only one right choice.

    Yeah, this answer is another example of how I just don’t think like you guys sometimes. When we were asked about super powers I said the USA instead of flying or being invisible…
