Edison only built on Sir Humphrey Davy's invention.

Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone (he was British)

Congratulations on the Atomic Bomb. I'm guessing you know that, when the test was successful, some of Oppenheimer's team openly wept? Oh, and let's not forget it's based on John Dalton's Atomic Theory (Dalton too, was British)

Einstein was born in Germany and is most commonly taken to be Austrian

And I'll take your Steinbeck, and raise you William Shakespeare. Who is Steinbeck anyway?!

On top of that, Britain can also be credited for:

The Radio
The Steam Engine
The Television
ATM's and PIN's
Stamps
Signalling lights on ships
The World's first stored computer programme
DNA and Fingerprinting
Internal Combustion Engine
LED's
Metal Bridges
Bagless Vacuum
Fire Extinguishers
Postage Stamps
Mouse Traps
Corkscrews
Flasks
Smallpox vaccine
Gray's Anatomy (The first full anatomical book)
Anaesthetic
Discovery of the Atom, Proton, Isotope, Neutron, Electron and also Hydrogen
Railways
Seat Belts
Tarmac


So, if it wasn't for Britain, the USA wouldn't have trains, road, cars, hospitals, lights, TV's cash machines etc etc. Now, wind your neck in and fuck off.


By the way, an American asked me who Bradley Wiggins was the other day....I told him he was a bit like Lance Armstrong, except he wasn't a drugged up cheat.

Oh, and Democracy originated in Greece. Do all Americans actually believe the deluded shit you've just come out with?!

It's a bit sad that we invented all that, and now we are getting the chinese in to build our power stations and railway lines.

Whoa there cowboy, some of them things weren't invented in The UK..........

First of all, I do not expect you to do a research paper when talking to little old me.......

If the dude did it in America - no matter where he was born - it's American......

The TV ? That can not be possible. It just can't be so. TV is .....it's so........American.

Steinbeck is the shit, dude. Go read East of Eden, Sparky. William Shakespeare sucks........well he doesn't suck but, that language ain't what we speak up in the streets........

The best writer is Canadian - Gordon Korman. His Bruno & Boots series was off-the-hook.

God, you guys are so insecure.......Listen, this will throw youse.....

I actually like futbol (soccer).........not many Americans do. But I like it.

Ahh man, I'm not really as patriotic as I act. It's just that you guys are soooo anti-American it's fun to play with.

The original Americans had a highly developed culture, some great inventions and an existence in tune with nature. The settlers gave them the receiving end of bullets, syphillis, smallpox and alcoholism in exchange for taking their ancestral land. Quite so

Wasn't it Mark Twain who said something like "A Patriot is he who shouts the loudest without knowing what he is shouting about?"

How the F can I make up my mind aboot that? It's completely abstract and ambigious.......

I guess a rule of thumb is: If it's paints The States in a positive light they are American.......If it's negative they are European.

Yeah they really want you, they really want you, they really do

Yeah they really want you , they really want you, But I do too......

I want to be the girl with the most cake......

He only loves those things because he loves to see them break

I think it's so real I am beyond faith

"Who want to eat the cake and eat it....." Opps a bit o' mistake there partner......that don't make no sense.

Yes, Chris F, all Americans are morbidly obese. Good one.

You know, you call others "trolls." But it's you guys that are the trolls.

You try and insult me every time.....or my country.

Please direct me to where you guys don't act like "trolls."

Show me your brilliant, witty prose......

Show me your stories of epic sessions.....

Show me your posts sharing your intensive surf knowledge.......

Where oh where..........?

You just don't get the British sense of humor, the English, Scots and Irish (and Australians) love taking the piss out of our fellow countrymen (not the Welsh though they hate it). The English take the mik of the Scots for drinking buckfast and refusing to eat food that's not been battered and fried, they don't take offence (hopefully) and I don't think for one moment that it's true (just like we don't really believe that all Americans are Obese warmongering, right wing, half witted, gung ho, tight fisted, humorless, racist bigotted, religious nutters. Lets face it you aren't all obese). In return the Scots take the piss out of the English for.. well come to think of it I've no idea but there must be something (having a shite football team or something I expect, which in all fairness we have), and again we don't offence, it's just part of the banter.

Check out Reginald D Hunter, he seems to explain it well. (about the 3:30 mark)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tuq8ZU2Uf_0

So chill, join in and take the piss, and learn to enjoy having the piss taken. It's not supposed to be witty or clever, we just enjoy it. Simple folk that we are.
