All week long, in partnership with our friends at Scientific American, we’ve been talking about "the end" on The Takeaway. The end of the world, the end of our own lives, or, today, the end of things that we could do without.

From Daylight-Saving time to the Space Shuttle, landfills to human drivers, we talk to Scientific American editor Michael Moyer about an eclectic mix of things that the world — and humans — might be better off without.

What do you think? What are some of the things we'd be better off without?
