As someone who could have benefited from this perspective earlier in life, allow me to offer a little advice. Do not list "girls" as a "best invention." If your goal is to get the attention of women, here is an example of how you might respond to this question:
  • Cashmere
  • Chocolate
  • Lavender bath oil
  • Spice tea
  • 600 thread count sheets
  • Afternoon naps

  • You can also try to work some of those ingredients into a smooth pickup line
