part of why I started this thread, fun and educated
If someone had said to me that they thought vodka was invented in america. My reply would have been to take a few steps away from them and very cautiously ask if they are still taking their medication.

Not slamming just actually surprised. These are things I would have never associated with america.
Of course I know none were invented in America. I was just answering...

I have more than enough ways to bash americans . Really do not need one as simplistic as this.

No, nothing to do with bashing americans. Just truly surprised by the contents of the list.

The vodka one really made me laugh. I am even tempted to see if google can find even one american expressing the idea that vodka was invented in america.

I'm guessing you thought it would be harder to find things that weren't invented here?
guessing wrong Gate, as you may know I read a bunch and I figured out we are a new country therefore a lot was invented elsewhere.

Who invented air conditioning black man?​



Jones, Frederick Although Willis Carrier receives much of the credit for developing the modern air conditioner, it was really an African-American named Frederick Jones who created the first portable air conditioner.
