Symptom 16: I Can't Believe They Invented It

Two weeks ago Scott and the Ragemaster discussed the best tech in science fiction history. Now it is time to bookend that with a discussion of the worst tech in science fiction history.  The items that make this list are useless, misapplied, unrealistic or just plain stupid and cringe inducing. Some of the items are actually conceptually awesome, had the writers put just a little time into making look the least bit realistic or functional. 

We also take time to crap on Captain Planet, because even though he is not science fiction he is technically a superhero, and the worst one ever.
