Things That Amaze Me :: Volume 3Saturday, November 13, 2010
It is my opinion that plastic is one of the greatest, and most influential, inventions ever. So many things we use in every day life wouldn't exist without it. Could you imagine your laptop being made completely out of metal? Or the breakthroughs plastic has allowed in the medical community? And where would we be without the fabulous Bakelite jewelry of decades past (yes, I have a weakness for vintage baubles)? Plastic is an invention that is only 155 years old, yet it permeates almost every part of our daily lives. Really quite amazing when you stop and think about it.
