Well, my two sisters and myself wouldn't be here for starters due to incompatible blood groups with Mum.

I think it might be internal combustion engines; many of the other things in the list wouldn't be as good (or even possible at all) without good transportation.

Then again, most of the options are linked to one or more of the others in some way, it really is hard to decide...

I don't concider education an actual advancement, I think thats a survival trait that every intelligent species uses. We just grew bigger brains than monkies so we could handle even more of it.

I chose electricity because of its wide impact on advancement in the general sense.

second to that, maybe solar panels :) "free" electricity is pretty darn advanced.

The answer is probably education. Without that we have nothing on the list.

No one is even close! It is something very basic, used everyday by everyone. It is a part of two combined improvements that were made to our lives, very long ago.
You are all 'wet' if you don't have the right idea.
