Word of the Day 06/16/19 Disinvent

Disinvent (verb)
disinvent [ dis-in-vent ]


verb (used with object)
1. to undo the invention of; to reverse the existence of.

RELATED FORMS
dis·in·ven·tion, noun

Origin: Disinvent is an obvious compound of the prefix dis-, here having a reversing force, and the verb invent. It is quite rare, first appearing in the second half of the 19th century (for the “disinventing” of the telegraph). In the 20th century disinvent has been applied to the impossibility of “disinventing” nuclear or chemical weapons.

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
