America invented BS.

In the late 18th century, an Englishman named William Addis carved a bone handle, drilled holes into it and inserted boar bristles that were held in place by wire. Addis starting mass-producing his contraption and died a wealthy man. In 1938 the DuPont company developed/PERFECTED the first toothbrush with nylon fibers, which proved sturdier and more efficient than animal hairs. It's the United States that developed good hygiene habits that brushing one’s teeth regularly became a widespread practice, of course with the exclusion of the British hygiene habits we see today...

*Thats just one example of what the Americans perfected from what British invented. so BS on your dentures gramps

It is true however that the British are inventive and doers. Sure, they may steal or loot, but they are good at inventing, which the USAnians are great at commandeering and marketing and making a name for themselves as 'inventors'... Most of the famous innovators in the USA are from overseas.
Long ago, I read a statement that might just be true, or atleast plausible... That 90% of all the top scientists and inventors that we read about have been in or through the USA , that the inventors of 90% of all the gadgets we  use today are alive and  that 90% of all the top scientists and current inventors in the world today currently live or work in the USA!!
I am sure the 90% figure is  not exact but used to point to the overwhelming concentration of scientific and innovative minds in the USA.
But then 90% of the biggest financial schemes and scams pulled on the world also originate in the USA... They have very creative accounting and inventors of financial 'products'. They managed to sell bad debts as if they were actual assets!!
