One of the most important inventions
If someone asks: ” What was the most important invention of all times?”
Next step after the wheel was
the gear (see picture above) that made it possible the creation of
complex machines which changed the world for ever.
Well, going back to wheels.
In the beginning, as far as we know, wheels were
solid. Just slices cut out from logs. Of course they were very heavy
and along the time men started to make slim wheels like those used
in bicycles for example.
And now? Do you agree that the wheel is one of the most important inventions of all times?
Nota 1- Sabemos que "people" (pessoas) é o plural de "person"(pessoa), e não poderia portanto, ser escrito
que seria o plural do plural. Mas quando se trata de indicar os "povos do mundo", usa-se "peoples" com "s". ok?
