Greatest invention ever

This week I am teaching vocabulary on the theme "inventions".

Asking my students what they consider the most important invention of all times, the answers were all reasonable: the light bulb, the car, the telephone etc.

One girl thought long and hard about it, and then announced: the rice cooker!

I suggested that perhaps we should start talking history in terms of BRC - Before Rice Cookers.
