1. The Dewey Decimal System.
Each morning when we arrived at school, if my memory serves me correctly, we faced our nap mats toward the birthplace of Mr. Dewey and proceded with meditative chants honoring him. Our librarian insisted we commonly refer to the Dewey System as the greatest achievement in the history of mankind, and that she should bear his children if she were lucky enough.
I have gathered an official statement from Dr. Jason Hughes, previously of El Paso, TX, now living in Iowa City, IA via a shortcut from Las Crusas, NM but soon headed to Mason City- "Screw Dewey." Thank you Dr. Hughes.
I guess maybe there was a need for Mr. Dewey's system at some point in our previously archaic lives, but I am confident I can go the rest of my life without using it.
2. The Pythagorean Theorem. Ok, a lot more useful than the Dewey Decimal System, but unless Mercury Volatile Brownell needs help with her homework, I think I can flush this one.
3. My Sony Walkman CD player. I still buy CD's, but they immediately get loaded on my computer, Ripped to MP3's and iTunes and are filed away in the closet.
Things I will never use again Honorable Mention:
4. The Golden Rule
5. Paper Books
