Something a little fun for a Friday, maybe.
Some of you may know from posts I have made in the past that my two adult sons, who live with me, and I often sit around in the evening in the living room, TV on a sports channel but with sound turned down, and watch the game while having a lively conversation about
anything and everything.
Well, the topic that came up the other night as we did so was: What were the five most significant inventions of the twentieth century?
After kicking it around for a while, here's the list that the three of us came up with, in order of importance (to us):
4. DNA testing
5. Electric guitar
These are probably choices that would make a lot of peoples' short lists, but, of course, arguments can be made for a good number of other things invented in the twentieth century, too.
(BTW, we didn't think the choice of electric guitar was all that frivolous, stopping to think just how pervasive the music of it has been over the past sixty years, and the influence the music it plays has had on so many lives).
And, surely, I would get a hearty round of applause from you all if I were to list as Honorable Mention:
PSA testing [grin]
But opinions will differ, which is the point of this thread.
So, if you have a few minutes and think it would be a little fun to play with this topic, and you'd like to submit your own top five, please do, and let's see how opinions differ (or agree)..
Chronic prostatitis (age 60 on)
BPH w/ urinary obstruction, 6/2011
Ongoing high PSA, 7/2011-12/2011
Biopsy, 12/2011: positive 3/12 (90%, 70%, 5%)
Gleason 6(3+3), T1c
No mets, PCa likely still organ contained
IMRT w/ HT (Lupron), 4/2012-6/2012
PSAs (since post-IMRT): 0.1 or lower
