BRAINBUSTER: the first ever ONE-OF-THESE was made 20 years ago. (Aug 11th to be exact) Something we do now regularly.
ANSWER: first online purchase
August 11th, 1994, a pepperoni pizza with mushrooms and extra cheese was ordered from Pizza Hut via the World Wide Web. Though there is rigorous debate (as there always is when it comes to anything internet-related) about whether this purchase was indeed the FIRST, but it is the first documented purchase.
