I think it's " the internet "

I can't imagine living without it.

My second choice would be " languages "

It's second because, sadly, there are just too many of them.

If there were a language that is understood by all, it would come first.

 

BTW...Does anyone want to try the kissing machine ??

I think it's a bit gross.

Not something I would try.
