Many inventions have changed the world we live in. From the wheel to the printing press, from electric light to the computer. Just imagine though, if the wheel crushed the poor guy who likely invented it as a potter’s wheel around 3500 B.C. in Mesopotamia, same goes for Johannes Gutenberg’s printing press falling on top of him and squishing him like a bug.

What if Thomas Edison was lit up like a Christmas tree by his electric bulb or Charles Babbage’s computer caused time travelers from the future to come back to shoot him in the head for starting the war against the machines in 2249? Sound far fetched? Well there have been quite a few inventors whose creations changed their lives forever…. by permanently ending it.
