    Ever thought about that?

  3. Yes....And all movies would be animated drawings or paintings on clear
    film......Actors and actresses would be hired only for their voices. (a good
    thing, I would think)

    It would still be orbiting around the Sun, as usual.
    No hide and seek necessary.

    Huh?
    The printing press wins--hands down--on that one.

    Those difficult teenage years would have been even tougher.

    Writing. (First invented in what is now Iraq, as it happens.)

    We'd all be arguing over who makes the best brands of paints... Nikon, Canon...
    or... Benjamin Moore ;-)

  10. Given that the methods used to capture cell animation and project are very
    similar to ordinary cinematography, I doubt even that would exist.

    Without photography, we wouldn't have cinematography (and vice versa).
    No-one would have televisions, and everyone would be much fitter.

  11. Well, as someone once said over in another forum I frequent, Nikon are
    paints . . . or . . . . . . was it . . . . Pants

    Assuming we're talking about an invented device...I'll stick with the
    printing press...which took the ability to write (communicate) to huge
    scales that could influence the masses...and the world.

  13. Actually, if you were to really consider the ramifications, and think it
    through to its logical conclusion, the whole universe would have to undergo
    a drastic change....Silver, and its present chemistry would have to go away,
    and the physics of a universe without that part of the periodic table would
    be very difficult to imagine.......

    Well, since the post we are replying to says "invention" not "object" I
    think a script, an alphabet, whatever. No writing - not much point to the
    printing press...

    We'd all be complaining about the OT flame wars between the Sennelier and
    the Windsor & Newton adherents.

    And then there'd be those darned pointilists who really belong in the
    rec.painting.equipment.digital group but keep posting here on the basis that
    they use the same paint.

  16. I'm not convinced... it's not like the people who discovered silver then
    went on to invent photography as a result. There were plenty of uses for
    silver before the halide business, and if les Lumieres had got there first
    we wouldn't even associate silver with film...

    And if you never knew silver existed, how would you miss it?
