Accountancy has given the world...

... two great things.
One of them is writing
About 6 thousand years ago Sumerian accountants started writing down their dealings using signs, which they were later to develop into a phonetic linear system of writing. Quite astonishingly, writing continued to be used for accountancy and recording only, while the literary tradition remained oral. 

The other one is my husband.
