Which 5 objects best symbolize the good in the human race and which 5 objects represent the bad?

Asked by mazingerz88 (17834 points ) March 31st, 2011

Human beings are the most dominant creatures on this planet. We are unmatched when it comes to changing the Earth’s surface, from building simple homes to great monuments, from crafting a spoon to launching space shuttles. Which of these things do you think humans should be proud of and which ones are regrettable?

Can’t really classify items in good or bad.
What’s good for me could be bad for someone else.
What’s bad for me could be good for others.

Though the most good and bad thing in this world is the earth.
The planet sucks but we can’t really live without it.

@The_Idler One of the coolest answers I have ever seen on Fluther.

The wheel, the telephone, the red cross, a canvas, and the door.
The sword, beer, code bars, boots, TV.

Not entirely sure which of those is good or which is bad…
